A research was carried out on a global level, consisting of people who have suffered betrayal in their relationships. The aim of the study was to determine how some steps can help in overcoming the sad feelings.
Once the trust is broken in a relationship, it is hard to bounce back to normal. Marriages and relationships suffer from the betrayal of trust. But research says that it is not impossible to revive a broken relationship. The process of rebuilding a relationship is easy and requires few steps.
One of the first things a couple should do after betrayal is know the details about the situation. Sometimes, it is misunderstandings that lead to assumptions. And this can be really harmful for a relationship. If you are the one betrayed or the one who betrayed, it is easier to let the facts out. This way, both partners know the situation.
Next step in the process is to vent it out. Keeping the pent up frustration to yourself is toxic. It is far better to let the anger out and be vocal about your feelings. Most couples want to stay calm and dignified but by doing that they shy away from their emotions. People suffer from eating and sleeping disorders and many suffer depression. It is not easy, but it is necessary to release the anger.
If you want to rebuild and gain back trust in a relationship you need to put effort. You can’t build a relationship overnight, then how can you rebuild it. It takes time and commitment. The one who betrayed the trust feels like he or she owes it his or her partner to put more effort. But both of them need to put in effort and show commitment if they want it to work out.
Though the responsibility lies more on the shoulders of the offender. And the said person needs to be empathetic towards the partner and understand their pain.
These are the steps a couple needs to take to get the marriage back on track. Honesty and effort are the two important ways through which they can succeed.
