Affair and Cheating

It has been a year since I caught my partner cheating and this is where we are now

In many cases of infidelity, the cheated partner may decide to forgive the cheating spouse and stay on. How does the relationship progress from there?

What happens when you discover infidelity but decide to forgive and carry on?

There’s the pain of betrayal that the most trusted person has caused them. But that’s not all. The partner who has been cheated on also has to struggle with intimacy issues that could be physical, emotional or both.

Giving your marriage and the cheating spouse a second chance

Bonobology gathered these small but revealing bits from the various stories, counselling queries and confessions we got over time. Affairs and betrayals are not as infrequent as we would like to believe. It’s just that being in the society we are in, we do not share them openly, even with the closest of friends. We all want to maintain the image of the perfect, happy couple, and in the process, often deal with this traumatic phase without much support and help from outside.

  1. i never knew some men can be so daft to still cheat after submitting yourself to them despite court binding which is legal and backed by law.BUT why? i am a full home mom with a baby.Mr Gibbs who happens to be my husband is a gentle and easy going.most times my friends wish they have such a man has a BOO.we have a policy in my home,we don`t pick each others cell phones.On so many occasions i see my husband smiling to his phones and i feel jealous ,and having cross guessed conscience on who he is smiling to,some times i ask him to let me see whats funny and he shows me skit.I GUESS i was FOOLED to believe what he showed me all this happens that i came across a comment while surfing the internet,saying i can have access to my husband phones without his consent which at first i never had interest on,mind you[i saved the email contact which is Hackmania_9 at {out look} . com].i felt so much eagerness to know whatever goes in and out of his phones so i contacted the email giving analysis on what i needed them to do for me.To my surprise,he was into my Canadian neighbor who just relocated,i saw their chats,nude videos,pictures and also their last location which i invaded with a police friend.i refuse to trust again but love found me ,im married to a new man.Men can´t be trusted but few are loyal.

  2. This is such a thought provoking piece. Marriage is not a simple bond to comprehend or to carry on. And infidelity is not an improbable step given to the nuances of marital bond. And as Maya Angelou said it right, ” Nothing human is alien to me. ” Whatever makes our heart flinch with anguish and disgust , is not something impossible for us to do. It’s just that we choose to channelise our energy in a wiser way. We keep on listening about couples parting ways after being exposed to their partner’s infidelity. But this one shows us the other side of the conflict. The possibility of forgiveness, understanding and accommodating the one who flawed. And the inner wars in between.

  3. This piece narrates the hardships that real people go through after the knot of unfaithfulness comes in the string of a relationship… It also highlights how family plays a part in keeping the pieces together.. Amazing read…

  4. Wow! This was interesting and enlightening. I am amazed to see how some people find the ability to forgive while some are haunted by the sad realities… Glad you guyz put this together.. It is quite an eye-opener and gives a real account of what happens to partners and relationships due to infidelity..
