    Marriage after Affair

    I have been married to my wife for almost four years. I found about three months ago that she had an affair with an ex of hers about three years ago. I knew something had changed, with her and with us but I don't think I wanted to believe it was that. We are trying to work it out and stay together for our family but it is tough. She is in the Navy and stationed in Japan for two years. Does anyone have any success stories or advice?? Thanks

    you guys are together for 4 years and you said she had an affair with her ex almost 3 years ago. how do you so confirm about your wife affair? Do you have any proof or you just assuming? Did she give you any sign of her deception??? If she did then she wanted to work out with you for sure and probably felt sorry for everything because it is not ethical. You better speak with her and let her know about your thought. If she is a wise person she will explain to you for having peace.

    Good Luck

    As a therapist who does couples therapy, I can tell you that many couples get past this. They are often even stronger for it -- though that does not mean they are exactly happy it happened. The important thing is to really re-establish trust, not to let time put it in the past and try to ignore the continued undercurrent of distrust. This means having open dialogue around it and for both parties to share their experience. The one who was cheated on needs to feel supported in sharing their struggles, though not use it as a way to just repeatedly bash their partner. And, if there were problems in the marriage that the one who cheated felt and dealt with by having an affair, then it is important that they be able to address this. To be clear, this does not mean having an affair was an okay way to handle the problems, but that they can be worked through now.

    All of this can be very tricky and I generally advise people to see a a couples therapist to help them. With your situation of being so distant from each other, that can be especially difficult. Maybe you could schedule telehealth therapy sessions (online)? Maybe you talk the best you can through the 2 years and then get couples therapy?

    Of course, there is much about your particular situation that I do not know -- perhaps limiting how much you can apply of this advice to your situation. But I hope this is helpful.

    My advice is too go before the Lord Jesus Christ and pray for your marriage. Ask the Lord Jesus to heal your heart from all trauma and cast out all unforgiveness you have towards your wife...Then ask the Lord Jesus Christ to be in the midst of your marriage.

    Dude she cheated on you. Don't forgive her so easily. What's wrong with you? As soon as she sees you're a door mat, she will treat you as such. What will keep her from doing it again? And couple's counseling when she's in freaking Japan isn't really feasible. I already know it's excruciating to think of time apart or time away or you're afraid of losing her and you still love her. But think long-term. This relationship has NO longevity if she doesn't respect you. You need to SHOW her, not tell her, what you NEED as a man and that is two fundamental things (1) RESPECT (2) commitment. If she is unable to provide those TWO fundamental things to you, which are essential to any relationship, and you're STILL OK with that, then you need to work on yourself and see why that is. That takes really focusing on yourself, talking with friends and family who care about you, and then seeking counseling individually.

        This writing is similar my issue. I have a BF he always thinks about me negatively! he thinks I sleep with my EX but i did not sleep with my ex. of course two fundamentals are important (respect and commitment). i am wondering why he doesn’t just ask me directly instead of thinking about me cheating. i am not cheating period.
