Infidelity - Can Marriage Counseling Help?
Can a Marriage Counselor help a couple get through infidelity and overcome such an upsetting event?
The article summarizes K's situatio - a mother of two, that had been in a relationship with her husband for 5 years; he had been unfaithful many times during the course of their relationship.
Being sympathetic and trying to make her realize what she already knew deep inside I answered her as kindly as the circumstances allowed. “No, I do not think that the Infidelity and mistrust issue between you and your husband is the real trouble here. The major issue is the disrespect that you have towards yourself. You do not see yourself as strong, independent and well deserving of a true relationship.”
As both a Psychologist and Life Coach my therapeutic recommendation therefore was that she absolutely needed to restructure the way choices are being made in her marriage life. “Be a model of a good leader and a responsible parent to your kids. Show them that they should not at any time accept to be treated as the second best.” I told her.
The art and the science here is to accomplish this restructuring in a way that the Relationship Advice not only occurs without harming the marital equilibrium but also strengthens it.
