Heartbreak, Sex

After your partner comes clean about an affair, is it really possible to have a monogamous relationship? In this video, therapist, relationship coach and YourTango Expert Dr. Tammy Nelson explains what it takes for couples to recommit to monogamy after an affair.

"Your understanding of monogamy really has come to an end," she says. Therefore, before you can truly move on, you must grieve the loss of your former commitment, which your partner broke when he cheated. Thankfully, says Dr. Tammy, it is possible to rebuild your relationship.

After grieving, sit down with your partner and discuss the new terms of your relationship. What exactly are you promising to one another? This way, says Dr. Tammy, you will both be on the same page moving forward.
