Infidelity can be seen as the ultimate betrayal in a relationship. It shatters not only trust in the partner, but also the mental image of the relationship. It fundamentally alters the threads of the tapestry of the relationship, and now the image has to be woven in an entirely new pattern. This is breathtakingly painful and difficult, but it doesn't have to be the end. A new image of the relationship can be created, and the work can be done to move forward. The damage cannot be undone, and what was woven will never exist again, but something new can.
