After a scandalous affair with actress Sienna Miller in 2008, Balthazar Getty is slowly getting back on track with his wife, Rosetta, according to Huffington Post.  “Here’s the bottom line: It was a very challenging time for everybody involved,” said Balthazar to Harper’s Bazaar via Page Six, “but I loved and missed my family too much not to make it work.  Rosetta is understanding enough and spiritual enough to let us try.”  Rosetta continued explaining by saying, “I’m going to have to explain this to my daughters one day.  I chose not to act from ego because I just felt like it would be too crushing for my children.”

Are there ways to make forgiving a partner easier?

Cupid’s Advice:

Forgiving your partner can be a tough task, especially when they’ve tested your trust.  Cupid has some tips for easing the process:

1. Remember the kids: If it’s your spouse that has been disloyal, sometimes you should consider taking the road Rosetta has taken and stay together for your family.  It can be more important to stay strong for the sake of children involved than to allow your hurt emotions to take control.

2. Think about the commitment: When it comes time to forgive, it’s important to assess how committed you are to your beau.  If in the end you are truly still in love with him, then working it out might be worth a shot.

3. Be selfish: When deciding whether to forgive someone who has betrayed your trust, it’s important to still put yourself first.  Decide what’s best for you, and what will make you happiest.  If forgiving your mate will take away from your happiness, maybe it’s time to move on.
