Saving Your Marriage Requires Trust
Building trust in your relationship is going to be a challenge no matter the circumstance but especially in a case where one partner has had an affair. In that case it may even take several years to regain total trust but its a must in saving your marriage. Contrary to what television would have you believe marriages do survive affairs. (this doesn’t mean its ok!)
If you are the one who had the affair then you must be willing to accept responsibility and apologize if you are serious about saving your marriage. Trying to justify it through your partner’s actions will only backfire.
Trust is something that takes time to build. It wont happen overnight but not to worry because if you are successful in saving your marriage you are going to get to spend the rest of your life with this person.
Actions Speak Louder than Words
Simply telling your spouse that you love her or him doesn’t equate to instant trust. As my father used to tell me, trust is earned not given. There had to have been trust in your marriage at one point or you wouldn’t be married.
Whatever has happened to break down that trust can be repaired. When you make a promise to your spouse keep it; period. All the words in the world won’t mean squat if you don’t follow through. For example, if you say you are going to be home at a certain time but can’t make it, call ahead and let your spouse know. Its the little things that make the difference.
The Truth Shall Set You Free
If you are serious about saving your marriage never keep secrets. Keeping secrets is basically the same thing as a lie and you already know that you should never lie to your spouse. If you want to build that lasting trust you must be prepared to be totally honest no matter how painful. Your partner will appreciate you for it. As you prove yourself your spouse will be eager to do the same and a mutual faith will start to build. This is the beginning of a very strong bond you will ultimately develop.
