Trust problems are difficult to overcome, but a good strategy is to regain trust little by little.  Start by making a commitment to always:
·       Do what you say you’re going to do
·       Not do what you say you’re not going to do It sounds simple, but for couples with trust issues, this may prove to be a stumbling block.  Once you’ve cleared this hurdle and built a small sense of trust, try doing activities together that require
trust.  Suggestions would be rock climbing, competing as a team together against others (this could be anything from table top games to bowling or even online games.

When trust has been broken, the only way forward is to ask forgiveness, sincerely and without reservation, to take responsibility for whatever you have done or said, or not done, without blaming or making excuses. When both husband and wife are willing to forgive and make a fresh start, then trust can start to be rekindled, very carefully and very slowly, like a tiny flame of fire which can easily be blown out by a puff of wind. You will need to be very patient and gentle with each other, offering constant reassurance and affirmation until the trust can grow and become strong again.
