Recovering from cheating is not as easy as saying, “I forgive you.” The pain runs deep and the trust is broken. Healing those wounds and rebuilding that trust can be a multi-month (or longer) process. The cheater needs to be prepared to put in the work, and know that this will be an uphill battle. They do not receive their partner’s full love and affection back overnight. Things don’t just return to normal in an instant. Going to couples counseling will be critical. Making daily gestures to prove their honesty and commitment will be necessary. The relationship will not feel easy for the cheater for a long time – they lost their privileges to an easy relationship when they cheated.
