Think carefully about divorce after infidelity

Finding out that your spouse has been unfaithful is a huge blow to your relationship. Sometimes, it isn't possible to overcome the damage that's done. When you're in this position, you might decide that you want to file for divorce. This is a big step to take, so you need to make sure that you aren't making a decision based solely on emotions.

After thinking about it for a bit, you might realize that divorce is the only option you can live with. There are several things that you need to do. One of the most important is to remember that you're human and will have a variety of emotions to work through. This isn't going to be easy, but it is the only way that you'll be able to truly move forward.

You also need to think about your health. There is a chance that your ex contracted a sexually transmitted condition. You need to be tested for these diseases so that you can find out if you have anything to worry about. Your ex should also be tested, but there might not be a way you can force them to do this.

Throughout the divorce, your ex might try to make things as easy for themselves as possible. You have to do what you can to protect yourself as you work through the property division and child custody aspects of the split. By standing up for yourself, you might be able to walk away with a settlement that puts you in the best position possible for your new life.
