Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are not the first couple to be caught up in a cheating scandal, nor will they be the last. Cheating, it seems, happens more often than anyone would like to acknowledge. In the days when reality television rules all, we often witness a lot of couples go through the aftermath of infidelity when one, or sometimes both parties, have had an indiscretion. We watch from the comfort of our couches as these couples go through therapy, and deal with attempting to stay together after someone has strayed.
So, it begs the question, can you recover a relationship after someone has cheated? On a personal level I would say, no. The trust is broken, and trust is a key foundation of your relationship. I am also a firm believe in the sentiment of, “once a cheater, always a cheater”. However, I am no expert. I also haven’t been one to stick around if I feel someone has been unfaithful.
Some individuals have reported that they have made their relationships work even after cheating. Many said that talking about it with an objective third party, such as a therapist, helped tremendously. It helped the cheater get down to the root of their cheating, and for the other person to understand why they cheated. Some said that taking a break, and focusing on themselves was crucial to having a better understanding of how to make the relationship work at some point in the future.
