Severe marital problems, including infidelity, abuse, and neglect are complex relationship issues that may be difficult for a third party to fully understand. The best way to support a friend or loved one undergoing serious problems in their marriage is to offer to listen. Then, if your friend trusts you enough to share, practice active listening techniques and avoid judging, even though some things you could hear might be very disturbing. In most cases, advising a friend to leave their marriage will result in them cutting you out of their life, not their spouse, so take caution to avoid such advice except in the most extreme circumstances.
