3 Reasons to Take a Break After You’ve Been Caught Cheating

After you’ve been caught cheating your first instinct may be to push hard and fast to get your wife to take you back. That could be the worst mistake you could possibly make in this situation. Getting her back can still be a priority but if you take your time and plan out a full frontal assault that is designed to win her back you’ll have much better odds of winning than if you fly by the seat of your pants and hope to get it right.

Here are 3 reasons why a break might be the best thing to happen to your relationship after you’ve been caught cheating.

1) It gives her time away from you. Whether you realize it or not, the sight of you right now causes her pain. It reminds her of what you’ve done and that hurts. Taking a break and giving her time away from you allows her the opportunity to (1) experience what her life will be like without you in it (2) come to terms with how she feels about what you’ve done and (3) decide if she can forgive what you’ve done to her in the interest of attempting to salvage your relationship.

2) The break allows you the opportunity to decide if you are really interested in making things work with your wife or if maybe marriage at this point in your life is not for you after all. Not everyone is ready for the rigors of matrimony. There is a lot of give and take involved in making a marriage work. Are you up to the challenge? Are you even interested in making it work anymore or are there other women out there who are proving to be much too much of a temptation to continue to allow to pass you by? It’s a question you need to be able to answer before you move forward in an attempt to win her back.

3) It gives you both a chance to appreciate one another a little more. There is a lot of truth in the old adage “absence makes the heart grow fonder.” If you really love each other and have a relationship worth saving then taking a break after cheating might be the perfect reminder of just how great your relationship is. Don’t waste the opportunity that taking a break presents by calling things to an end too soon. Instead, take your time and do your time on the relationship break. In the end, the strength of your love should decide whether or not the two of you dig in and work together to work things out.
