Suspicion of Emotional Cheating
You have found this informative help here perhaps for a couple of different reasons. Are you suspicious of your marriage partner’s behavior towards you, do you feel like they are sabotaging any activity that might bring you two closer together, are you on to some unusual behavior of your spouse that points to an affair of some sort but it does not seem to have the signs of a sexual affair? If you cannot find any physical traces of an affair but your spouse’s emotional distance seems to point to something more elusive than a sexual fling with someone else then it may be a real possibility that your marriage partner may feel emotionally lost in the marriage and may have turned to emotional cheating to get an emotional high or meet some emotional need they do not feel is being met.
It is hard to say if the emotional cheating that is or very well could be going on behind your back is part of some fear, weakness or an emotional outlet from the real issues in the marriage.
Guilt will Show on the face and in their actions of the Cheating Spouse
True emotions can be temporarily masked in relationships and marriage. People learn to put on a front and make believe everything is ok when silent desperation is being held back in the recesses of a hurting spouse’s mind and emotions.
The reason you suspect something is wrong and the behavior of your spouse does not seem to make sense now is because when cheating spouses repress their emotions about problems you and they may have together, their subconscious is hard at work causing them to do things they would not normally do, because they feel guilty about their duplicity and deception towards you. That is why you notice a change in your spouse.
It is not your fault they are not emotionally connecting to you anymore. They cannot emotionally connect with you the way they used to connect with you because their guilt will not allow them to connect to you or else the rationalizations they have made from the start for the lack of emotional connection will cause them to have to admit to themselves the terrible thing they are doing to you, themselves and your marriage.
Types of Emotional Cheating
Emotional cheating can take many forms but the most common involves seeking someone outside of your marriage to build an emotional relationship, via internet chat rooms, texting, spending time together with the other person and making emotionally significant connections that they should be making with you.
The emotional affair could be with an inanimate thing or hobby. A spouse’s car, job or food may take your place emotionally. Some people escape emotionally into fantasy worlds, romance novels, clubs or fantasy football leagues or just pour themselves emotionally into a recreational sport.
No matter what the form the emotional cheating takes it will kill your marriage. Your spouse’s emotional attention and allegiance must be, first and foremost, given to you, their marriage partner.
