Whether it is infidelity or any other way, by which the trust in the marriage is broken, you can still rebuild trust. It is difficult to hold on to trust when you know of certain, your partner has cheated on you. Broken promises and unfaithful partners make the SO feel less likely to grab on to trust.
We have seen a lot of apparent reasons that married couples give as to why the trust was broken. We understand as humans it is justified. But what if the couple still wants to give each other a shot and hang on to the marriage that is under turbulence?
Rebuilding trust and rejuvenating the marriage is the only way out to gather the courage to hold on to the marriage.
There are many ways in which one can build trust but it is when you are new to the other person. Once the trust is broken, it becomes hard to get it back.
In this article, you will learn the steps to get back the life you wanted with your partner even if he/she cheated on you.
Here are the 5 steps that will rebuild the trust in your marriage.
1. Letting Go Of The Past
If you are having problems in trusting your partner again, then you are holding on to the past. In order to rebuild trust, you have to let the past go. If you hold on to it, you can never let the future bring you happiness.
One should forget the pieces of the past where he/she was torn down by unfaithfulness and broken ends. Letting go is the only way to increase the acceptance of the future you are seeking with your SO.

2. Make A Decision To Love
After losing trust, it is hard to rebuild it again. But promise to yourself, "no matter the reason for which trust left, I will still continue to love". Your decision to continue loving will bring back the trust eventually. It is the least and the most you can do to save the marriage and even try to get the trust back.
Continuing to love will eventually bring back the dead trust back to life again. It will take some time but will certainly rebuild the trust once lost.
3. Set Goals For Future Of Your Marriage
Together you and your partner need to set definite goals for the future to be sustainable and happy in the marriage. In marriage, you cannot just evade the trust away and move towards the future.
When you make definite goals for the future, you and your partner start working towards it and in this manner the trust breeds again in both of you.
Setting goals are one of the finest ways to work your trust to be built again.
4. Bring Back The Commitment
You cannot just bring the trust back unless you bring commitment back again to the marriage. If your partner or you have cheated on the other, then you have got to bring back the commitment that you once had for the marriage and for each other.
Without commitment being shown, the trust will never be seen in the close proximity of the marriage. All it will be is a fruitless marriage of deceit and broken commitments.
5. Share The Hurt And The Feelings
It is okay to share the pain. It helps in the process of healing. And healing helps in getting back the trust, which once took off.
Marriages are built on two people sharing their feelings and trust. But in order to continue happily, after being tormented in the wind of unfaithfulness, one must share the pain with the other partner and the other should acknowledge it.
This is the way one can just bring the other to feel how hurtful he/she is after the deeds of the other.
Sharing eventually brings back the lost feelings as emotions parade between each other giving the consolation to trust.
These are the 5 steps you need to take if you want to rebuild the trust that was once carried away by the tsunami of wrong deeds.
It is easy to be angry and take revenge, while it is difficult to be back again loving and caring for each other when you know it is hard for you. But the latter keeps you and your partner strong and the former strangles the marriage.
That's all, people!
Do what you need to now. Keep following the ways for rebuilding trust in marriage.
