Does infidelity pain ever go away?
Research shows it takes about eighteen months to two years to heal from the pain of your partner's infidelity. Knowing that the pain isn't going away overnight can be helpful, and knowing that it will eventually end is also valuable in the healing process.
What do you do when someone tries to ruin your relationship?
Another huge mistake you can make when dealing with someone intruding on your relationship is to ignore him or her (or stay silent). No one likes a person who can't stand up for what they believe in. If you have a bad feeling about someone or something, talk to your partner about it. Communicate with him or her.
Can a relationship survive lies?
It may even be necessary to lie sometimes to avoid hurting your partner's feelings. “Lying is quite common in relationships,” says Manhattan-based licensed clinical psychologist Joseph Cilona, PsyD. However, that doesn't mean some of those whoppers can't be damaging. It all depends on the lie and why you're telling it.
Should you ever get back with someone who cheated on you?
It's totally normal to be lonely after a breakup, but it's important to be aware that you should only return to the relationship if it's truly what you want. Similarly, if you've cheated on someone, you should make sure you're not getting back together for any reason other than that you want to be their partner again.
