#Be open about your expectations. It's important to lay down reasonable expectations for each spouse as early in the relationship as possible.<ref>https://ift.tt/2NB6IeS> This way, if someone behaves badly, you can clearly point out exactly how your trust has been betrayed. This is especially important if your expectations of your partner differ significantly from the "norm" (i.e., he should not cheat on you, flirt with other people, and so on).

#Clearly explain to him how he has betrayed your trust. Your first objective after a betrayal is to think about how you will communicate to your husband that he has shaken your trust. Here, as above, you'll want to focus on how his actions made you ''feel'' rather than making personal attacks. However, since in this case he has deliberately done something to hurt you, you don't need to stay perfectly calm. It's only reasonable to get emotional &mdash; especially if he has done something truly disrespectful.<ref>https://www.loveisrespect.org/content/building-trust-after-cheating/</ref>[[Image:Trust Your Husband Step 6 Version 2.jpg|center]]
