It Destroys Sexual Drive
For some people, infidelity can destroy their sex life. If your partner has cheated on you, even if you are working hard to figure and rebuild the relationship, sex is often the last piece of the puzzle. At the time, you’re dealing with all sorts of emotions – depression, anger, betrayal – and that just kills your sexual desire. On the flip side, it can also increase a couple’s sex life but for all the wrong reasons. Sometimes, the innocent party will feel like they’re in competition for their spouse’s affection and want to win them back. This can lead to sex between the couple, following explosive arguments about the affair and vice versa. Sex in these moments can make an insecure relationship feel temporarily safe and intimate.
