What do you do if you find out your partner has been cheating?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s easy to say what you would do if your partner ever cheated, but the reality of the situation is completely different than that “what if” scenario. Before you make any rash decisions or say and do something you may later regret, consider the tips below:

1. Take a breather: It’s natural to need a bit of space after finding out such life-altering news. Step back from your relationship and use this alone time to think about how you feel about your relationship, your partner, and, most importantly, your future.

2. Seek outside help: Whether it’s a close friend or a therapist, talking to an outsider about your partner’s cheating will help you gain some much-needed perspective. It’ll allow you to look at the big picture and really consider the questions needed to determine if you want to work through this rough patch with your significant other or if you’re ready to call it quits.

3. Follow your heart: Finally, no matter what anyone says, listen to yourself. Deep down, you know whether or not you can truly forgive your beau and move forward in spite of the transgression. Just remember that if you can’t see past this mistake, you’ll never be happy together.
