Infidelity, or cheating is the ultimate test for any relationship and it is often a deal breaker even in the most committed relationships. The interesting thing is that infidelity isn’t always the result of an unhappy relationship or marriage. The stats show that 56% of men and 34% of women who cheat rate their marriages as happy or very happy. There are many reasons why people cheat and falling out of love with a partner is only one of them.
Only 31% of marriages survive an affair and the majority of couples cannot move past it. Some people would say that they would never forgive an affair, but it might at least be worth trying to recover from it as best you can by following the steps outlined in the info-graphic from Can’t We Just Get Along Counselling. It provides advice on the steps the betrayed spouse and the unfaithful spouse need to take to give the relationship the best chance of recovery.
