In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

As-salaamu `alaykum wa-ramatullahi wa-barakatuh.

You mention you made a big mistake. As human beings we do make mistakes. If you are referring to a sinful act, then Allah has opened the door of tauba (repentance).

Make tauba from the sin and make a firm intention never to repeat the sin in future.

Your marriage is intact.

And Allah Ta`ala Knows Best.
