Cupid’s Advice:

Scandal is swirling around Josh Duggar right now, and even when it comes to non-celebrities, rumors and scandal are never good things. Being able to regain trust in your relationship and love life after betrayal is tough, so Cupid has some love advice:

1. Open communication: If someone has cheated on you, then there was clearly a lack of honesty and communication. The best way to regain trust in your partner is by establishing an open line of communication. As long as you each know how one another is feeling, there will be no question about what the other wants. Therefore, there will be no reason for them to go out and cheat. You will both be on the same page!

2. Affirmations: Often times when people cheat, it’s because they are looking for support, attention and compliments. If they aren’t getting that, then they look elsewhere for it. It’s like the saying goes, “You should always be like a girlfriend even when you’re married, otherwise he’s going to go out and get a girlfriend.” Constantly remind your partner how much they mean to you, and use terms of endearment to show you care. Life is short, so let everyone know how much you love them!

3. Effort: If your partner has cheated on you, but is making an effort, then it may be time to trust them again. If they are being genuine and it’s a two way street, then that is a good sign. Both parties involved should care and be making an effort to salvage the relationship. It’s time to grow from the unfortunate experience.
