Dealing with infidelity can stir up intense emotions, however, the good news is that the majority of relationships not only survive infidelity, but marriage and family therapists have observed that many marriages can become stronger and more intimate after couples therapy.
Infidelity can be linked to relationship problems such as:
-fear of intimacy
-life cycle changes like the transition to parenthood, and empty nesting.
Some dissatisfied partners begin an external relationship as a way of exiting an unhappy relationship. While others may do it even with having a healthy relationship.
AN EMOTIONAL AFFAIR
An emotional affair could mean the unfaithful partner is no longer invested in the relationship. This can be even more damaging than physical. So, Identifying it early can help those in a relationship to discuss their expectations.
If you or someone you know is experiencing distress, therapy with a marriage and family therapist can help and a great place to start is at Star Point Counseling center located in Tampa, Fl & Brandon, Fl.
