Surviving An Affair  -  Do You Know If Your Partner Is Really Cheating?

Does your husband or wife have a close personal friend of the opposite sex? Has this friend always been a friend before you met your wife or husband or has this all just happened recently? If it is the latter, then watch out! If your partner had made some sort of new personal relationship (where they call each other, text each other, or email) then more than likely the relationship has become a little more than it should.

When this happens, you will probably start noticing the relationship between you and your spouse does not seem as close or intimate as before. Is he or she sharing her personal feelings with you as much as before? If he or she is cheating then probably not.

If he or she is in fact cheating, more than likely they know it is wrong and they will go to extreme lengths in hiding the truth from you. If you do in fact catch him or her doing something out of the ordinary, the cheating partner will probably go into aggressive mode and start blaming you and saying all of it is your fault or the opposite and say she/he is only a friend and it is ok to have a friend of the opposite sex.

The main question is are they really having a sexual relationship with one another?

There is really no true way of knowing this unless you overhear their conversations or catch them in the act. The main thing is your relationship with your partner is messed up right now already because you have doubts and insecure issues which is no good at all because you have to have trust in a relationship.

Thought, if your partner admits it eventually, this is a sign at least that he/she feels guilty and more than likely wants to make it right with you. This, is of course, very good news and the first steps that you two can work together in surviving an affair.

One of the first steps to take if you do find out in fact that the worst is true is to examine your own connection between you and your partner first. Has it been bad or any worse before all this happened? This is still no excuse whatsoever for the cheater to cheat and there will never be an excuse that is worthy for doing such a horrible thing, but normally it is something to do with a bad connection between you and your partner that probably started it all.

So start with look at you and your partner's relationship. Where did it start going wrong? Communicate and talk to your partner if you can because the first step in surviving an affair is starting before it all happened.

In the affair help program, there is more information and steps to take that can save your relationship with your partner. There is forgiveness and there is hope in saving it no matter how terrible or resentful you may feel right now. The help in solving the problems for you and your cheating partner really exists.
