One word that doesn’t immediately come to mind in relationships when it comes to cheating is “helpful

One word that doesn’t immediately come to mind in relationships when it comes to cheating is “helpful.” It’s not one of the first leaps the mind might make but it is, on occasion, accurate. In fact, this is more often the case than most couples who have dealt with the heartache and pain of cheating are even willing to admit to themselves.

With roughly 63% of the population admitting to having cheated on a partner, it’s fairly safe to assume that there are a lot of people out there who have been cheated on (whether they know about it or not). Even among those who do know, not all of the relationships end as a result of the cheating. In fact, a surprising number are choosing to remain together after the cheating and some have, gasped, found ways to build happier, healthier relationships after than they ever enjoyed before.

The truth might sound surprising but there are some very logical reasons that cheating is sometimes a great way to clear the air for couples.

1)   It lets the couple know that all is not well and that there is a problem that needs to be addressed. No matter how minor the problem may seem, if it isn’t dealt with adequately and effectively then it can become a huge problem later on. The events that lead up to cheating my seem like small potatoes but they are problems in the relationship that need to be acknowledged, corrected, and adequately dealt with for all parties involved.

2)   It gets you talking to each other and not talking at each other. One of the biggest things that happens to couples over time is that they stop talking to each other. Do you remember back when you were dating and you hung on his every word? It’s time to start some new conversations and really participate this time around.

3)   It forces you to both take a step back and assess where the relationship has been heading so that you can change directions in a way that works better for both of you. Relationships involve two people but you’ve agreed to become a couple. This means that your future, fate, and lives are intertwined. When cheating happens it’s a good indication that something has gone off course. It is now up to the two of you to sit down and civilly decide how to proceed from here.
