Don’t Roll the Dice by Having an Emotional Affair

Just because you’re married doesn’t mean that you can’t be friends with someone of the opposite sex, as many married people do. Having friends of the opposite sex though can cause problems in your relationship if you’re not careful though. This would open the door to having an emotional affair with your friend.

Don’t let the word emotional before affair fool you into thinking that it’s not too much to worry about. Physical affairs aren’t the only things that can damage your relationship as emotional affairs can cause significant damage as well. An emotional affair will only open the door to a physical one. With you two emotionally connected, it’s very easy to really cross the line.

Having a physical affair with someone you don’t care about is incredibly wrong even if it doesn’t mean anything to you. You will find it much harder to walk away from someone you’re having an emotional affair with though.

Everyone who works outside the home typically spends less time with their significant other than they do with their coworkers. That’s why affairs of all varieties are very common in the workplace. Emotional affairs are likely even more common as two people start to become closer and closer.

Once they’re connected emotionally, they will start talking to each other more often, sharing feelings, and generally coming to the other person in their time of need. Once an emotional affair develops, your spouse will stop being the main person you go to for advice or support. You definitely shouldn’t confide in your friend more often than you do your spouse.

As time passes, the risk of crossing the line will only get bigger. Your spouse may even be dropped from your loop entirely as you’d rather spend your time talking to your friend. This would undermine the sanctity of your marriage as you will become less intimate with your partner.

You may be wondering how you’re supposed to tell the difference between having a friendship and emotional affair. If your spouse knows about your friendship, then it will be much easier to keep things under control. Your friendship is likely headed in the wrong direction if you two are secretive about it, even from your significant others.

While keeping your friendship secret, there will be a lot of time when you’re forced to lie to your spouse. You never want to be in a situation where you’re forced to lie to your spouse, as that’s clearly a form of betrayal. You definitely wouldn’t like it if your spouse kept friendships hidden from you, so you should avoid doing the same. Doc No. 34Sdlhgsdl -sds
