    I think my wife is having an affair!
    375 Views
    It's not wise to presume things. If you have reasons to doubt your wife, then confront her and ask her directly what is going on. If she admits that she is cheating on you, at least you can discuss what she wants out of the marriage. If you both want to end it, then divorce would be best for you both. However, if she is sorry about her behaviour and wants to work on the marriage, then the decision rests on what you want to do. Cheating can cause a lot of hurt and shatter the relationship, but there can still be hope. It may take a while to rebuild the trust but know that it can happen. And has happened with many couples. Try counseling - there are many benefits to it if you wish to consider the latter option.

Seek other singles who are mature, share the same values as you, are honest and on the same wavelength as you. Dating may seem exhausting at times, but be positive and do not waste time on those you feel are not worthy of your love and attention. Only invest in those individuals whom you know you can prepare a marriage with.   That would be the best advice I can offer.

    109 Views

    Does asking emotional intimacy questions bring a couple close?
    57 Views
    Emotional intimacy is a sense of closeness to another person; a real sense of two-way empathy.

Exploring emotional intimacy can certainly strengthen the marital bond. Be gentle, though.

    How can a marriage survive after infedility?
    Surprisingly, many marriages actually do survive infidelity. Couples that have been married for many years, have been through thick and thin together, and are relatively mature, may have the best chance at surviving a major obstacle such as infidelity. Younger couples, those with less experience in relationships, high self confidence, and strong motivation and energy, are more likely to leave a partner who is not faithful. There is no right or wrong answer as to whether to stay with a partner who was unfaithful; the decision is very personal. The way to survive after infidelity takes dedication from both partners. It requires remorse on the part of the person who was unfaithful, and forgiveness from his or her spouse. Then, comes the rebuilding of trust. She will have to work very hard at trusting him again – starting with the belief that he is genuinely remorseful and will never do this again. From there he will have to exhibit completely honest behavior at all times – for a period of time. If this goes well, the negative feelings fade in time as she begins to trust in him again. If there is any divergence from the path, though, turmoil will result, and the relationship may never heal.
