My husband of 5 years has cheated on me. I'm heartbroken. Can I fix our marriage?? Is there hope for us?? Will things get better? Please help
Am I over reacting? Am I the one in the wrong no him
Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?

Communication can be difficult, particularly when it involves feeling vulnerable, putting a difficult truth out into the open, or risking the feeling of rejection. If it’s so challenging, why do we bother with communication, and why is communication important at all?
The answer is all in the data—surveys and research performed across the globe tell us that communication is absolutely critical when it comes time to strengthen a marriage, and lack of communication can lead to devastating relationship rifts and higher rates of divorce.
Add to myWE:
For example, a survey polling one hundred Mental Health Experts revealed that problems with communication were the most common problem leading to divorce, while the next most common cause was an inability to resolve disagreements (sounds like matters of miscommunication to us). Other studies that polled randomly selected couples discovered that these couples also cited a lack of communication as a primary cause of potential relationship breakdown.
The benefits of healthy communication.
On the flip side, those who say that communication is key to a good marriage aren’t wrong. While a lack of communication can lead to devastating effects and terminated marriages, positive communication yields a number of benefits including:
- Opportunities to build trust;
- Foundations for clarity in a variety of relationship matters;
- The prevention of problems or disagreements;
- Insight about how to fix a marriage that’s in trouble;
- Lack of communication as a risky business.
We’ve already discussed how a lack of communication might endanger a marriage, but why? The fact is that, without communication, there is no way for partners to understand what the other is feeling. How can one partner make the other happy without knowing what is necessary to fulfill them?
It is this resulting emptiness and penchant for secrets that can lead to disaster down the road.
