Emotional Infidelity In Marriage In A Modern World
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It is not a question if a person can be friends with a member of the opposite sex who isn’t their spouse. The question should be; is the marriage and relationship healthy enough to survive such a friendship.

Emotional infidelity in marriage is becoming more and more common these days. With as busy as both spouses are one might feel neglected or emotionally dissatisfied within the marriage. If he/she spends a lot of time with someone outside the marriage a sympathetic ear can turn into an emotional bond real quick.

If you don’t know what emotional infidelity in marriage is this is your lucky day? It is when someone who is married finds fulfillment with someone else outside the marriage. One of the things that is a big no no in friends circles is discussing dissatisfaction with a spouse to friends and strangers of the opposite sex.

If this sort of thing is happening though it doesn’t mean the person who is not in an emotional affair in marriage is completely innocent. That spouse, the faithful spouse, still shares some responsibility for preventing an environment in the relationship that promotes emotional infidelity in marriage. This is a responsibility shared by both spouses and should be mentioned.

If a friend outside the marriage suddenly gets too personal the best thing to do is just tell them. I love my wife/husband and I don’t want to do anything to hurt them. If this friend doesn’t back off then they have crossed the line and need to be avoided. This should keep you away from infidelity in marriage. It is your decision though.

If you suspect your spouse is involved in emotional infidelity in marriage, then confront them. If they lie to you it will eventually come out so it is better for them to admit it. That way you can talk about it and get the problem in the marriage out in the open, otherwise just look for signs of their emotional infidelity in marriage.

Some of the signs you might see are: • Dressing sharper and more concerned about their outer looks. • Taking calls into another room so you can’t hear it. • Less interest in the home and the other spouse. •`Less of an interest in sex in the bedroom in one extreme and exploring new strange sexual acts on the other extreme.

This should be enough for you to go on and see if your spouse is having emotional infidelity in marriage behind your back. If you are interested in finding out more about this subject look it up on the internet. I have a good story about emotional affairs on my blog “Dealing with Infidelity in Marriage”. I hope you find answers to all your questions during your search.
