The injured partner was able to see genuine remorse and efforts to change, which facilitated forgiveness and healing.

Case Example 2:

A partner who felt abandoned during a family crisis when the other was preoccupied with work. In therapy, the couple explored the emotional impact of this perceived abandonment.
