Your partner’s betrayal could hurt in the same ways for the same reasons for a long time.

1. Don’t ignore the infidelity
You might be tempted to act as if nothing happened because it feels less painful, but if you do, any resentment you have will likely fester, and what’s more, you won’t address the underlying problems in the relationship. “The most important thing is to understand the meaning of the infidelity, because many, many times it’s a reflection on the satisfaction in the relationship,” says Firstein.
“There are, of course, situations where people are sexually compulsive, but most of the time, [cheating] really happens in a kind of attempt [by the cheater] to bring some attention to the problems in the relationship.”

Maybe the infidelity really was a one-time moment of weakness or maybe it was an attempt by the cheater to find something they felt was missing in the relationship. Either way, figuring it out will bring you closer together and make infidelity less likely to happen again in future.
You should focus not on “making things go back to how they were” things are already different but on building a new, stronger, more fulfilling relationship. It is possible.
