Confronting an Unfaithful Spouse
Realizing that your spouse is having an affair can be a painful time, and you may be tempted to pretend that it is not happening. However, should you choose to confront your cheating husband or wife, there are a few things you should keep in mind to handle the issue in a collected manner.
Before you go into this talk, have in mind how you want to handle the affair. Will you want a divorce or separation? What about working through it with marital counseling? If you desire to work through the issue, you may want to point this out to the other person before any bridges are burned.
Affairs are, by nature, secretive. Therefore, it can be difficult to gather evidence that your spouse is cheating. However, having absolute proof is necessary to determine the truth of the infidelity, and it can also be helpful should you want to file for divorce. Also, if you ask your spouse about the affair, you can give him or her a chance to tell the truth and come clean. If you have evidence, you can see if the person is lying or not.
When you accost your significant other about cheating, you may be tempted to scream and threaten. Remember, this can have a strongly detrimental effect on your kids. Therefore, you may want to plan the discussion for a time when the kids are not at home. Also, if you are going to yell and shout, a public place probably is not your best bet. On the other hand, if you feel that this conversation may lead to violence, perhaps a semi-public place is a good idea.
Many affairs do end in divorce. If you have been unfaithful or cheated upon, you should seek expert legal counsel to help you get through your divorce.
