What can You do to make things Right after Cheating?

Have you been caught cheating? Do you think there's nothing you can do to make things right between the two of you? Couples are learning that an affair, while not pleasant to work through, isn't always the worst thing that can happen to a couple. It is possible to repair a relationship even after an affair. There is one key ingredient that must be present though in order to make it work. You must both be willing to work it out.

So what's the bad news?

The bad news is that the other person might not be as open to the idea of working things out as you might like. It might take a little work to get the person you cheated on back on board for making this relationship great.

The other half of the bad news is that there might not have been much there in the beginning upon which to build. Not all relationships are as wonderful as you'd like to imagine they are. Sometimes you seem them as so much more than they really are. You need to really take stock of what you have together and decide if it's time to build on the existing relationship or really move on (after all you've already been tempted).

Are you ready for the good news?

There is a silver lining here. Some relationships truly are worth saving. It's quite likely that your relationship is one of them. If you're certain there is still love there - even if that love is buried beneath a mountain of hurt, pain, and betrayal - there is something to build (or rebuild as the case may be) on.

But, what can you do?

The most important thing you can do after you've been caught cheating is apologize. You need to tell the one you're supposed to be in a relationship with that you are truly sorry not only for turning to someone else but because you've caused him or her a great deal of pain in the process. Your relationship isn't going to go one step further until you apologize.

What's the next step?

Sin no more. You've committed the crime and now you have to walk the straight and narrow. If you're really committed to the relationship and love the one you're with this should be no major sacrifice on your part. It is time to give up the "other person" and focus on building a better relationship once and for all.

Finally, you need to be patient. Give the person you believe to be the love of your life a little time to come to terms with the affair and the aftermath. Have a little patience and allow trust to rebuild as slowly as necessary for the two of you to make things right and work them out.
