Are you having an emotional affair? While this question may seem like it comes with a simple “yes” or “no” answer, for the millions of people out there who are involved in emotional affairs, the answer may not come as easy. When people hear the term “affair”, they often think “cheating, with sex” and forget about emotional affairs, one of the biggest threats to today’s marriages. Often times, people are in denial about having an emotional affair because those relationships start off as innocent friendships and involve no sex and because of that, they don’t consider it cheating at all. But they’re wrong. Once the other partner becomes aware of it, the emotional affair will cause constant arguments and begin to eat away at a marriage. These emotional relationships can be just as intense or more than sexual relationships, and the more you continue the affair, the deeper you go down the rabbit hole.
