Any type of relationship can be affected by infidelity.Emotions can make it difficult to stay calm in a marriage.Identifying your emotions will help you get a grip on the situation.You can deal with the situation in a productive way.
Step 1: Before the conversation, calm yourself.
Before you have a difficult talk with your husband, take a moment to relax.Give yourself time to calm down and prepare yourself.Listen to music.Music can make you feel better.Listen to something that relaxes you.In the time leading up to a difficult conversation, listen to that song.Light exercise.Exercise distracts your mind from what’s bothering you.It is not necessary to work up a sweat to feel the benefits.Take a ten to thirty minute walk.Take deep breaths.Slow, deep breaths are one way to remain calm.As you count to five, inhale slowly through your nose.For seven seconds, hold your breath.As you count to eight, exhale slowly.To feel relaxed, repeat up to ten times.
Step 2: You should take a moment to identify your feelings.
Taking the time to notice how you are feeling can help you confront your husband.After you have calmed down, you should ask yourself some questions to understand your feelings.I don’t know what to feel in this moment.Where in my body do I feel sad?What is the shape of this feeling?What color is it?
Step 3: There is a healthy outlet for your feelings.
You should look for a healthy way to express your feelings after a while.Pick something that seems like it will work for you, because there are many different ways to do this.Exercising can be done by taking a walk, going for a bike ride, or taking an aerobics class.Writing in a journal.Baking a cake, playing an instrument, or painting is a creative activity.A friend is talking to you about how you are feeling.
Step 4: Get the facts straight.
Discuss the affair with your husband.You should find out the general facts about the affair.It’s a good idea to avoid getting too many explicit details.Find out how the affair started, how often he saw his lover, and who else might know about it.
Step 5: Find out if your husband wants to stop cheating.
There are many reasons why people cheat on their spouses.A means of escape from a troubled marriage isfidelity.If your husband is committed to making a change that is satisfactory for both of you, then ask him if he wants to continue your marriage.He must stop cheating completely for some couples.You can pursue a different type of marriage for others.
Step 6: It’s a good idea to avoid blaming.
It’s normal to be angry and upset.You want to stay calm.If you get into an argument in which you blame each other for their problems, you won’t be able to stay calm.Blame will only make the other person feel guilty, hurt, and more likely to respond with an accusation that ignites an unproductive cycle.Try to keep calm by taking deep breaths and listening to your husband.Don’t use “I” statements that reflect other people’s feelings.When you said you were working late, be kind to yourself.Even if you can’t keep calm and avoid blaming, there will be more opportunities to talk with your husband.It is not easy to start a conversation.You can have a calm discussion after couple’s therapy and later discussions.
Step 7: Think about what to do next.

Step 8: Suggest therapy for a couple.
Right after discovering an affair, it’s not a good idea to make big decisions about your marriage.You may not know if you want to stay in the relationship.In determining the right course of action, therapy can be useful.Check with your insurance company to see if couple’s therapy is covered.If that is the case, set up a meeting with some therapists.If you know of a friend who sees a therapist, get in touch with them.You don’t have to see your friend’s therapist, but they may be able to recommend another one that suits your needs.
Step 9: Accept that it will take time to recover.
It will take some time to come to terms with your husband’s infidelity.The first few weeks can be difficult.It could take months for you to feel better.
Step 10: Take care of yourself.
Go to yoga, get a massage, watch a movie.Whatever you have to do to lower your stress, do it.Taking care of yourself is very important.You will be better equipped to deal with challenges when making decisions about your relationship.

You can get support from a trusted friend or family member.It is difficult to be alone when your husband is unfaithful.It is possible to vent frustration or anger by talking to a friend.Write in a journal.It’s a good idea to put your feelings on paper.
Step 12: Find a therapist.
It is possible to go to therapy on your own, even if you plan to see a couple’s therapist with your husband.Even if a close friend or family member is willing to listen to you, there is only so much time they can devote to your problems.If you decide to end your relationship or evaluate why the affair happened, a professional can help you.
Step 13: When you first find out, don’t make decisions.
When you find out that your husband is cheating, you will probably not be calm.That is normal and you don’t want to make big decisions.You don’t need to decide immediately if you want to repair your marriage or separate.The worst period of initial shock is the first two or three weeks.Make no decisions about your marriage, children, or other important things.It will take you as long as a year or two to think clearly again.
Step 14: Do not expose your husband.
If you want to repair your relationship, you shouldn’t tell everyone about your husband’s infidelity.You don’t know what will happen with your relationship in the future, so be careful with who you talk to.If you decide to stay with your husband, you may be able to repair your relationship.It will be hard for things to go back to normal if your friends and family don’t like him.Reach out to someone you know will be there for you through this difficult time.
Step 15: You don’t want to seek revenge.
Don’t hurt the person your husband is seeing or try to get back at him.Don’t retaliate physical, social, or emotional.You don’t want to hurt yourself in the future.Don’t cheat on him, hurt him or expose him.If you try to work things out, this will cause more problems in your marriage.Don’t retaliate against your husband’s lover.You put yourself at risk when you don’t know how the other person will react.If you retaliate, there will be more problems for you and your relationship.
