Reversing the Damages of Emotional Infidelity

Hearing that your unfaithful partner is “crazy” for somebody else is devastating. I frequently am faced with something like, “I could manage her making love with somebody else. I assume I could cope with that. But, for her to offer herself emotionally as well as actually to “love” another … guy, that is tough.”

What can you do, in such situation, to enhance the probabilities of conserving the marital relationship?

Usually the upset partner responds with extreme sensations and does everything within his (her) power to “win her/him back.”

They use stress. Requests. Cajoles. Makes pledges. Gets up in their partners’ faces. Sends out bouquets. Schedules dates. Speak with their partner’s friends and family. Texts and phone calls. Expresses numerous unfounded concerns … daily, in some cases per hour. Gets on his/her spouse like a fly on doo-doo.

This won’t work. Why? Well, for one factor s/he has actually located all the excitement and exhilaration apparently needed in this brand-new discovered “love.”

At a much deeper degree this is sufficient perplexing for the disloyalty partner or unfaithful spouse. Any kind of added input will be frustrating, possibly causing her/him to the door on the marital relationship altogether. The unfaithful spouse may be searching for some security, some strong focused core that will certainly hold him/her together when the wind of dramatization lures and blows around.

You are definitely not the answer to the problems being faced if you constantly pound your spouse with your neediness.

Opposite Sex Friendship “Dangers”

Can Married People Have Platonic Friends of the Opposite Sex?

Some people think married people can’t have friends who are of the opposite gender. However, by establishing proper boundaries and communicating openly with their spouses, married people can have successful relationships with coworkers or friends that aren’t inappropriate. The key is for a married person to keep a relationship platonic from start to finish by following a few simple guidelines.

Remaining an Open Book

A married person should never try to hide emails and phone conversations they are having with friends of the opposite sex. If a married person feels like he or she has to leave the room to talk on the phone or delete email messages, it’s a red flag. Married people should never say or do anything that they wouldn’t want their spouse to hear or see. Sometimes people have friends of the same gender who want to talk privately. While, it’s fine to have that kind of intimacy with same-sex friends, it’s crossing a line when married people are that emotionally intimate with a person of the opposite sex other than their spouses.

Keeping it Professional

One scenario in which platonic relationships tend to thrive is when two people work or attend school together. Collaboration is an important component of successful work and school projects. While it’s appropriate to ask general questions about a married colleague or classmate’s spouse or children, it’s important not to get too personal. Some taboo topics include sex, in-laws, arguments with spouses and private or embarrassing information such as a bankruptcy or illness.

Avoiding Alone Time

While it’s fine to have conversations that no one else overhears, it’s not acceptable to spend time alone with a person of the opposite sex unless it’s in a professional setting and can’t be avoided. When friends of the opposite gender get together, it should be in a public setting. In most social situations, the friends’ spouses should be included. Spending too much alone time together in person can lead to physical temptations. One of the benefits of having platonic friends through social networking sites is that it takes the pheromones and physical attraction out of the equation.

Knowing What’s Off Limits

For most couples, there are some relationships that are off-limits. For example, Read More…
