How Long Does it Take to Rebuild Trust After Infidelity?
Hello everyone, I am hoping to get some feedback. I was recently cheated on by my wife and I would like to know how long does it take to rebuild trust after being cheated on.
At this current moment, I am trying to save my marriage and I would prefer replies relating to saving my marriage but I am open to hearing your thoughts about why it may not work.
I am open to all answers, but I am definitely giving it a shot before just walking away from my marriage.
My wife cheated on me, and since her confession (she voluntarily confessed to me) she has done everything "perfect" in our relationship.
However, I am can’t get over her indiscretion and the details of her infidelity are embedded in my mind. I have tried everything to bury it but nothing works. I know time is a major factor in overcoming infidelity, but I do not feel like I have gained an ounce more of trust since and it has been over 7 months ago.
We recently began going back to church each week and I have been praying for a resolution that will end with us being happy again. We have also discussed marriage counseling but because of finances we have not been able to go as yet.
I know there are people that believe, "Once a cheater always a cheater." But are there those out there that has rebuilt trust after being cheated on?
I also want to add, that while I lack trust moving forward in our relationship I have to admit that I believe my wife's story 100%. I saw the pain, disappointment in her eyes as she confessed. As it was happening, I felt my pain and her pain at the same time. Its very hard to explain but I did.
My wife has always been someone that I have always respected and I had her on a pedestal. In fact, she is someone that is trusted among her friends and in her profession. This especially why it hurts so much.
In your replies, I am asking for as much details as possible. While I appreciate all replies, a general reply like “Give it time” is not what I am looking for. I am looking for a story or reply that will give me hope so I know that what I am doing may possibly lead to a happy ending.
So please, please…
