"Use frustration and anger as motivation to get things done and improve yourself," wrote in a post for Philly.com. "Hit the gym, go back to school, fix up the house. Generally, channel the energy into something productive."

Going to therapy could be beneficial.Believe it or not, not every relationship that endures infidelity has to come to an end. In a weirdly twisted way, the cheating may act as an opening for you, as a couple, to identify and work through the underlying relationship problems that led to the cheating in the first place. But it's best to do so with a counselor.
"I don't believe 'once a cheater, always a cheater' as a hard and fast rule," clinical psychologist Lynn Saladino previously told INSIDER. "While patterns of behavior often predict future behavior, I have seen several cases of cheating being a one-time occurrence. Each circumstance is different and there are a lot of factors that go into whether someone becomes a serial cheater. These include family history, value system, and reasons the person cheated in the first place."
These are things you can talk about and are often best talked about, with a professional.

Are they willing to make sacrifices for those they love? Look for red flags early on.
