Sussman continues: “Right now he’s really angry, and I get it. But doesn’t the relationship deserve some closure? Shouldn’t he sit and talk to her? Shouldn’t he hear her out and tell her how he feels?
“At the end of that conversation, he might say, ‘I love you, I really feel for you — but I feel so blindsided and lied to by you that I don’t think I’m capable of trusting you again.’ Trust is the most important element in a relationship. Once that trust is broken, it’s hard to get it back. The longer the time, the bigger the deceit, and the harder it is to recover.”
