Part of that trust is the knowledge their partner will not become emotionally or sexually active with another person. When a partner cheats, it is often devastating to the relationship. It causes immediate emotional pain, and many relationships cannot be salvaged when this occurs. The person who cheated needs to earn the trust of their partner yet again if they want to continue to be with them.
