dc.description.abstractThis study examined the contribution of forgiveness to psychological and relational well-being in adults who experienced romantic relationship betrayal. Three fourths of the participants stated having been betrayed by someone they loved romantically via sexual infidelity, desertion, deceit, outside relationships, and emotional abuse. The passage of time and religious values were the predominant response regarding their likelihood of forgiving. Respondents reported the ability to move on, personal well-being, and improved health as benefits of forgiveness. Drawing upon these results, we suggest forgiving offers a path to a stronger sense of personal well-being and the capacity for improved relationships with others.en_US
