3 Specific Ways You Can Recover and Be Better than Ever

Getting cheated on is ridiculously painful.

It’s a betrayal that hurts like crazy and seems like it could be impossible to recover from–personally, and as a couple.

I mean, how could he?

It’s human to want to make him hurt too, and to yell and throw things. It’s irresistible to berate him.

From crying in your ice cream to asking your sister, “How could he do this to me?” your husband’s affair can take up a lot of room in your head.

You’ll find yourself desperately looking for relief from the sharp ache.

That’s when the doorway marked, “End this relationship!” will look incredibly appealing. It will seem like the fastest way to stop the same relentless thoughts from cycling in your head.

That’s just an illusion, though. The hurt won’t die with the end of the relationship. That’s the bad news.

Here are 3 ways you can save your relationship by making it better than it’s been for a long time, along with the specific actions that will help you get there and end your suffering in the process.

4 Ways Women Have More Power Than Men to Make Marriage Last

Sometimes when I’m talking to a woman who’s struggling in her relationship and I mention feeling desired, cherished and adored, she looks disbelieving.

That’s too pie-in-the-sky for her.

Sure, she wants him to stop playing video games all the time, take out the trash before it’s overflowing and pay more attention to her.

Or if her relationship is in a crisis, she wants him to stop sleeping in the spare bedroom, texting another woman, or to move back home.

But she can’t imagine her man being tender, and looking for ways to make her life easier, and coming up behind her while she’s cooking to kiss her neck.

That seems completely unrealistic to her.

Intimacy Quiz

That’s because she doesn’t yet know about her feminine gifts and how to access them.

Last week in Part 1, I gave you a glimpse of how women have more power than men in relationships to avoid divorce.

Today in Part 2, I’m going to show you the rest.

4 Ways Women Have More Power Than Men to Make Marriage Last

You were born to be cherished by a man.

At one time, you took that for granted.

You probably started fantasizing about it when you were little, dreaming about the moment you would finally meet, or kiss, or fall in love with and marry a cute boy.

You anticipated with great pleasure how much he would desire you, and how he would woo you.

You spoke to your friends and your sisters and your mom about the nature of boys, and marveled at how strange they are.

You delighted in romantic movies and books where the boy got the girl.

You obsessed. You developed crushes. They went nowhere. You agonized. You debated.

All of that was preparation for your job as Keeper of the Relationship.

Sure, you suffered disappointments and challenges in relationships, mostly because you didn’t know about your superpowers as a woman.

If your relationship isn’t all you dreamed it would be, this is the missing piece that you need to not just stop a divorce, but make your relationship worth saving.

What are the gifts of the feminine, and how can you use them to create lasting love?

Glad you asked. I happen to have this list of 4 ways right here:

5 Ways to Tell if You’re Getting Help That’s Actually Helpful

By the time I was trying to find marriage counselors, things were pretty bad at our house.

I wasn’t looking for suggestions on how to improve a good thing; I was looking for ways to hold the marriage together before it self-destructed.

I remember knowing that we just couldn’t figure it out ourselves really helped me to be brave about deciding to go. It was more desperation than courage, actually.

Of course, marriage counseling didn’t turn out to be helpful for us, and since a study at UCLA showed that 75% of couples who got traditional behavioral marriage counseling were separated within a year, it probably hasn’t been the answer for you, either.

So it makes sense to look for an alternative.

My Husband’s Not Affectionate

4 Simple Ways to Stop Begging and Restore Your Magnetism

When I was at the lowest point in my marriage–feeling completely dejected and lonely because my husband was not affectionate–I kept reading advice from experts who insisted that the solution was to say, “I have a serious concern about your lack of affection.”

The underlying premise of this advice is that my husband just did not know that I liked affection.

Or maybe he did not realize he did not show affection. He just somehow…forgot.

But telling him to be more affectionate never works, as I’m sure you already know from trying it yourself.

If anything, that drove him further away.

Sometimes he’d leave tire marks in the driveway.

It wasn’t until I learned the 4 simple concepts below and started applying them in my marriage that I stopped feeling the urge to ask why my husband doesn’t show affection.

That’s because the smooching, the pats on the butt, and the fireworks in the bedroom came back.

4 Surprisingly Effective Ways to Bring Him Back to Life

Being married to Eeyore is excruciating. You’ve got to wonder why your guy doesn’t just look on the bright side.

But that’s not how depression works.

It makes sense that you want his depression to lift already so that the two of you can get back to laughing and having fun again.

His dark mood may be causing you more work, more loneliness and more heartbreak than you’d like to admit.

It’s frustrating.

Of course you’re not responsible for your husband’s depression, since you can only control yourself.

But you have tremendous influence over his outlook on life, including whether he feels confident and can-do or spirals into what’s-the-use mode.

Here are four powerful ways you can make the sun come out tomorrow.

Not Attracted to Your Husband?

Here’s how to get out of marriage purgatory now

When I married my husband, I thought he was the most handsome, smart, funny, talented guy I’d ever met. I couldn’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.

But a few short years into our marriage, I couldn’t remember anything I liked about him. He seemed pathetic, immature, lacking ambition and sloppy.

He was the same guy, but my view of him had changed.

I thought I made a mistake and should divorce and try to find someone who suited me better.

Looking back, I now realize that I would have found myself in the same situation with the next handsome, smart, funny, talented guy.

They weren’t enhancing the rest of my life, either. At all.

Intimacy Quiz

It wasn’t until I changed those habits that I went back to seeing him the way I did on our wedding day.

When I finally woke up and realized what I was doing, I noticed I wasn’t the only one. Lots of wives have these same tendencies, and they contribute to a lot of NET (Needless Emotional Turmoil) and even divorce.

Here’s what the bad habits are, along with what you can do to turn your frog back into a prince:

If you’ve ever spent an evening with your man or a date and ended up being his life coach, you already know that doesn’t make you irresistible.

But there are 11 simple behaviors that men find irresistible in women, and not one of them has to do with hair, makeup or how you dress.
