Our expert says:
It is understandable, given the circumstances that you have described. The trust relationship will be rebuilt only over time. You mentioned that you went to a shrink – if alone, maybe you should consider going for couple counseling and find ways to rebuild your relationship together. If you went together, it might be that you need alone time with the therapist to explore your own hurt and emotions and thoughts. We can never undo what happened in the past, but can move forward if we focus on what we share now and occupy our selves with making memories now. However, if we do not deal with what lead to the affair in a constructive manner and find ways to enhance the relationship for the future, you will not be able to use the experience to your growth advantage, but yet it will haunt your relationship.
