When there’s too much under a bridge, the bridge washes out. We’ve seen a lot of that happen with the bad weather all over the country. But when there is a betrayal in a relationship and the mate knows that infidelity is happening, and the Cheater won’t admit to it, that’s the sign that there’s too much water under the bridge. Early on in a marriage things not so dire start the trickle. A few years beyond, things actually become water under the bridge. Little things. Little everyday things. Spats over the kids, pets, or relatives, or financial problems. They all contribute to the rising water level.
But there is nothing that washes away the bridge between two people the way infidelity does.
That bridge cannot be saved. Because that bridge is gone. Gone in the wash of water and the tears…and the yelling…and the silence. There’s no rebuilding that bridge, despite the over 10,000 times your bodies touched, or the secrets that you shared. The whispered confidences that no one else needed to know. Your personal bridge for two.
Remember how you once stood there, arms around each other’s waists, knowing together you could remain there. That was your place.
That’s all gone as if it never existed, because cheating destroys everything. Especially when it will not be admitted to. Faced head on. The person being cheated on becomes the Accuser. The one that has to make a case. Prove beyond a reasonable doubt. The Accuser knows she is right.
It’s like we’re spinning in a circle by ourselves until we just fall down. Then we walk away, the rush of water still in our ears…
