How do you know if spouse ended emotional affair?

  • Emotional affairs are the most difficult to overcome. Your spouse may say they have ended the emotional affair, but may still think of that person and since each individual has the ability to their own private thoughts there is no way the other spouse can know for sure if their spouse is truly over the emotional affair. The good thing that can come out of it is people who have emotional affairs are missing something in their marriage (perhaps don't feel they can go to their spouse to communicate as to their wants or needs without an argument ensuing) so they rely often on the opposite sex to discuss their problems. Women are most often more open to help out a male or female friend whereas men quite often do not discuss their problems with their male friends or perhaps a family member. Once the spouse talks to the female (or male counterpart) as a friend and feels secure this can quite often be misconstrued for love or, it fills the spouse's needs that are not available to them in their marriage. The other spouse should sit down and start communicating with their spouse without a heated argument and both parties should listen to each others feelings and to come to some point in their problems so they can resolve them. If the matter is a serious one and they can't seem to resolve it then seeing a marriage counselor can help only if the two spouses are in full agreement.
