How Do I Protect Myself From A Cheating Husband?

Follow Us

The holidays are approaching. You’re getting excited about family coming to visit.

Stop everything! You just found out that your husband has been cheating on you. What do you do now? Do you feel that you only have two options?

  1. Leave him and start a new life on your own
  2. Learn to guard your heart so the cheating doesn’t hurt so much

When you got married to him you thought it was forever. Never did you think he would cheat on you. Marriage vows connect two people through love. Leaving isn’t appealing to you, especially during what’s supposed to be a festive holiday time.

Are you just going to guard your heart, be strong, or just turn off your feelings towards him until you can decide what’s best for you?

In order not to let your heart break, perhaps the following tips can soften the situation – for now:

  • This may not be so comforting, but he does come home to you every night
  • When he is with you, be pleasant, loving, caring – even if it is now an effort
  • Don’t punish yourself in order to punish him
  • What is he not getting from you?
  • If you have a wall around you, knock it down – try not to be emotionally or physically unavailable to your husband

Even though you’re hurting now, open your heart to him in a way you haven’t for a very long time. Remember when you two were dating? Show him that love, adoration and respect he saw from you then.

Give him an incentive to be with you and leave those other women behind. You did it once; you can do it again. Stop trying to protect your heart from your husband’s cheating; figure out a way to get him back and on track for a solid and faithful marriage. It can be done and you’re the one to do it.

If you decide you just can’t save your marriage or you’ve had enough, divorcing a cheating husband and knowing when the time is right to move on is an important step.
