Have you been unfaithful during your past relationship? How can you rebound with your partner after that?

FOX's Ashley Papa says a lot has to do with trust in this week's "FOX on Love":

Trust is the belief that your relationship is safe. When cheating happens, that belief is shattered.

If you've been unfaithful and now want your love back, relationship expert, Dr. Sheri Meyers, says regaining trust means you show you understand what your partner experienced and prove you really are sorry:

(Dr. Meyers) "It's really important to realize that you can't just put what you did away in the vault, talk about it once and then move on."

Meyers says you have to take responsibility for your actions:

(Dr. Meyers) "No, 'yeah but', no, 'well if you only did this than I would not have done this'. No, you have to take full responsibility for your actions and choices."

You must also prove over and over your commitment to the relationship:

(Dr. Meyes) "Most important, you have to make sure all the promises you make are promises you keep. Your words your actions and your deeds must come from total and unwavering integrity."

The good news is trust can be rebuilt. The bad news is that it takes work and time.
