What I should do to maintain our relationship when I found my wife cheating on me in my absence but now she has realized her folly and wants to remain sincere and honest?
It should never be forgotten, man is a social animal and could commit mistakes anytime anywhere. These mistakes may be simple or the gravest one. But one common thing amongst these all is that we all commit mistakes in our life – these may be in mere thoughts or application of these thoughts into action. These thoughts could be good or not so good and actions may be ethical or unethical and immoral.
iN ESSENCE, one thing is sure NOBODY yes NOBODY in this world is PERFECT including myself – just i should confess though i have not touched any other females (except, of course my wife) with any ill-intention, except while performing my profession as a Homeopath, who came across me. But i cannot say that i did not have any unethical thoughts. Being human means we have to live with our imperfections and there occasions when all have their weaker moments or situations when our mind and five sense over-power us and we commit something which others thing to be immoral and unethical. It should also be kept in mind that even an unethical or immoral thought too is taboo in real sense of term.
I had the privilege of discussing the similar case with one of the male colleague who asked my opinion. He related to me two incidents about his wife going astray. First as told by his confidante and the other one seen by himself. He could forget the former one as a false one but cannot ignore the latter one as he had seen that in person. I asked my friend whether he saw his wife going astray more than two occasions to which he told that except the two occasions, he did not think his wife had done anything wrong except for two occasions. There may be cases like this in the lives of others too; some incidents were known to the husbands or wives and others just not known and could be termed as slippages which could be forgotten by the doers after some time.
In your case too your wife must have some flings or weaker moments wherein she submitted herself but after realization dawned or when her escapades came to your attention, sure enough, you must have been shattered. Anybody naturally will feel so. But if your wife has repented her fault and promised to mend her ways then you should forgot the incident(s) as a bad dream and lead a normal life – take care of your family as seriously as you can. Certainly your wife would prove to be your best spouse for the entire life-span if you forget and forgive her NOW for the sake of your bright future and concentrate on your profession and bringing peace and harmony in your FAMILY with the dictum GOOD MIND GOOD FIND.
As your wife has promised you that she would be honest and trustworthy besides remaining remaining dedicated to you, therefore, you should believe her and FORGET AND FORGIVE your wife for her faulty path and lead a life sufficing with LOVE AND AFFECTION.
