What are emotional affairs and how to cope with them and save your
marriage or relationship?
According to Oprah.com, emotional affairs are the new adultery.
Is she correct?
Well, many of these types of connections do lead to physical cheating.
But even when they don’t they can be devastating to the other partner
in the relationship, because it is felt as a kind of betrayal of intimacy.
Some spouses even go so far as to say that they could handle a sexual
affair by their partner better than an emotional one!
Whether that is true or not; emotional affairs are confusing and damaging
to the healthy connections needed to maintain the primary union.
To cope with an emotional affair both spouses must agree that it is an issue
AND the one having the affair must decide to stop it immediately with no excuses.
That is to say: The emotional affair is not going to be allowed to cause irreparably
harm to the marriage.
Because an emotional affair is often nonsexual the spouse who is having one can claim
that there is no harm being done.
However, that is not true for the partner who feels left out and emotionally betrayed.
