Using the picture above as a backdrop, let's assume that one week ago today the male trapeze artist was late with his swing, and missed catching his partner's hands. As a result, she fell to the net.
If her partner had a history of not catching her, it would only make sense that her trust in his ability—and perhaps his willingness—to catch her would begin to erode.
Still, if she is committed to being his partner, there's only one way to rebuild trust: put herself in a position to give him another opportunity to catch her.
While she definitely wants to keep practicing with the net, and probably should make other adjustments, she still has to give him an opportunity to catch her.
This is the only way she can rebuild trust in her partner.
The same is true with rebuilding trust in a marriage. You must give your mate an opportunity to be trusted, again.
We have a resource called Rebuilding Trust In Your Marriage that will be helpful with restoring trust and the connection in your marriage.
This audio shows in great detail what both spouses must do to rebuild trust. Most resources cover what the spouse who committed the offense must do. This audio also addresses what the spouse who was offended must do.
