Extramarital Affair Advice - 5 Ways Back To Love

Nov 4, 2007
If you find yourself in the midst of an extramarital affair, you may be trying to figure out what to do next: does this mean the end of your relationship with your partner, or do you think you can find your way back to a loving relationship?

Here are 5 ways back to love.

1. Decide how you really feel about your partner: If you are having an affair, you have likely put any serious thoughts about your relationship with your spouse or partner on the back burner. The thrill or excitement of an affair - at least at the beginning - can serve as a drug that keeps you from seriously facing your real relationship. This state of limbo between two relationships can last for a while, but eventually you will find the need to come back around and face your previous/current relationship with your long-term partner. Ask yourself whether you really have the love for your partner to try make things work.

2. Determine whether you will share your indiscretion: Provided that you do decide you would like to really commit faithfully to your partner, you will have to determine whether it makes the most sense to share news about your affair with him or her or whether to keep it to yourself. This is a very personal decision, and only one that you can rightfully make. Ultimately, it boils down to your own sense of ethics and also your sense of what will make the both of you the happiest.

3. Get some professional help with your relationship: Should you successfully end your affair, the fact that you have had an extramarital affair undoubtedly means you have some serious issues in your relationship that you need to face. Whether you choose to see a therapist by yourself or to do so together with your partner, do seek professional help. You will find that a therapist can really help you work through your issues and increase the chances for a successful relationship.

4. Renew your commitment to your partner: If you want to avoid the chance of having another affair in the future, you must renew your commitment to your partner in your heart. If you are just staying with your spouse or partner because you are afraid of the changes that will come if you leave the relationship, you are doing both of you a disservice. You need to really commit to your love in order to make it work again.

5. Completely end all contact with your recent lover: The way back to your love with your partner includes a final, essential step: cutting off all contact with the person with whom you had the affair. Keeping them on the line or even talking with them periodically means that you are holding a little part of yourself open to the possibility of future untoward contact with that person. Best to let that relationship go completely so that you can focus on being with your spouse or partner and making it work.

The way back to love after an affair is not an easy one. You first need to get in touch with the part of you that knows how you really feel about your partner. Then, if you do decide to commit to your relationship again, you need to psychologically, spiritually, and energetically commit to letting go of the fling you are having and instead focus all of your attention on your partner. You can have the love you deserve, but it requires 100% commitment from your heart.
