For as long as there have been couples involved in committed relationships, there has been infidelity. However, with the spreading of the Internet, smartphones and new forms of instant communication like InstaGram and Skype, having the ability to meet individuals outside of a committed relationship has never been easier. With the number of easy ways to become intimate with individuals outside a relationship, it is no wonder the levels of infidelity have risen dramatically in the last few years.
Extensive studies indicate that infidelity often occurs because individuals become involved in scenarios where their emotions overtake them, and not so much because the situation was planned. Often times, men or women who feel trapped in a troubled marriage can be far more vulnerable to the devastating effects of infidelity. They can quickly become swept away in an illicit affair, even if they are involved in an apparent solid relationship at home.
When a man or woman becomes involved in an affair, it is usually an indicator of some underlying situation at home, in their committed relationship. To them, something appears to be missing in the relationship with their committed partner. In an attempt to find that missing emotional intimacy, they become vulnerable to outside temptations in search of locating what seems lacking.
There are five key warning signs that a relationship is in trouble, making individuals vulnerable to cheat on the spouse or committed partner. They include:
Infidelity does not have to include sexual activity to destroy a committed relationship. In fact, emotional cheating can often be more destructive than being involved with physical sex because it develops a sense of betrayal and mistrust at home. It is essential to disengage from emotional lovers and address the problems that allow the infidelity to exist.
