You’ll also learn the “why” behind these common emotional affair warning signs, although of course there’s much more of that kind of information in Emotional Affair Recovery 101.
You’ll understand more about what I mean as we progress through the various signs, so let’s go ahead and get started. The emotional distance between you and your wife will when she starts having feelings for another man.
For example, here’s one example I found on Talk About (names changed for anonymity): Brad’s wife, Jenny, had a close high school friend who she’d kept in touch with over the years.
Nothing serious, just an email every month or two, maybe a phone call a couple times a year.
Hopefully you have a good idea whether or not your spouse is committing emotional infidelity.One day Brad happened upon Jenny’s phone and saw an unread text message. Not only that, she’d also been raving to the other guy how good it was to see him and how much she missed him. When he confronted Jenny, she denied that anything was going on, but you tell me… Instead of discussing marriage problems with Brad, Jenny was venting them to this other guy with no goal other than getting his attention.Worst of all, she was trying to arrange face-to-face contact again… Fortunately, in this case Brad was able to show Jenny how and where she crossed the line and what that meant for their marriage.Well, this old high school friend came in town for a business trip and ended up having lunch with Jenny. John thought nothing of it; he was just glad his wife was happy.But, after her friend left town again, things changed – Jenny started having extended phone conversations with him three or four times a week, and it seemed like they were constantly texting each other every day. Being a good husband, Brad tried not to be suspicious, until… He discovered that Jenny had been sharing intimate details about their marriage (including their sex life) with her old high school friend.It’s like Newton’s third law of motion, the one about cause and effect.
