Un-Break My Heart— When To Walk Away After Infidelity?

When it comes to normalizing and glorifying infidelity in American culture, media has certainly played a major role. The concept of side chicks and sugar babies has become part of every other TV show, movie, and music video.

If someone has betrayed you, we know how catastrophic it must be to your self-esteem and mental health. Hence, we have come up with some signs that you should not ignore and walk away immediately. 

Is Your Partner Ready To Fix The Broken Trust?

To do that, your partner must first leave the person they cheated with and cut off all communication and ties. This is the initial step to make things better between the two of you. The constant worry of them getting back together may not help fix the broken trust.

If your partner is willing to make it work with you and is ready to fix their mistake and work on their behavior, then consider giving it another chance. However, if you find any warning signs, leaving your partner might be your only option. 

Does Your Spouse Disrespect You?

Whether your partner has cheated on you or not, constant disrespect is a red flag. You may need to leave the person even in the absence of infidelity. If you’re constantly belittled in front of others, and your opinions are not given as importance, then it’s time to reconsider whether that person loves you at all. If you still have to deal with continued disrespect after confronting infidelity, that person may not be worthy of your time, love, and most importantly, loyalty.

Do They Still Lie About Many Things?

Infidelity is not something anyone can discuss openly, and people want to hide it naturally. However, some people can lie about every other thing. Once they’ve been exposed, you must look out for the lies. They seek independence by maintaining a life private and separate from their partner. This behavior is unacceptable, and until your spouse decides to be truthful to you and becomes a trustworthy person, it is better to stay away from them.
