How to Get Past Cheating
An affair is a betrayal that hurts like crazy and seems like it could be impossible to recover from, both personally and as a couple. It’s human to want to make him hurt too, 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 infidelity 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.
The good news: You can absolutely end your suffering and save your marriage at the same time.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about how to get past cheating:

Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me returned.
I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.
