Emotional Infidelity Can Lead to Sexual Infidelity

Is your spouse or significant other a little too chummy with someone of the opposite sex? --- perhaps a workmate, a neighbor, an old schoolmate, or an online friend? DO NOT TREAT THIS LIGHTLY. Close friendships of this type can easily progress to emotional infidelity, which can often lead to sexual infidelity, even if that was not the original intent. It could be the beginning of the end for your marriage or relationship.

The Danger of Opposite Sex Friendships

Far too many people underestimate the danger of close friendships with members of the opposite sex, because they start out innocently enough. In the early stages, there is no sex involved. Very often, the person involved in this type of friendship does not realize how much of a threat it can be to his or her marriage or relationship. If you complain about it, your partner may simply ignore you, or brush off your concerns as jealousy or paranoia.

How Emotional Infidelity Becomes Sexual Infidelity

However, if your spouse or significant other becomes emotionally dependant on this opposite sex friend, and starts sharing hopes, dreams, special moments and intimate information with them, instead of you, a strong emotional bond will develop. It the situation is not put into check, this bond will progress to emotional infidelity, which will eventually lead to sexual infidelity. Your marriage or relationship may be at stake.

Emotional Infidelity in Real Life – Brad, Jen and Angelina

A prime example of emotional infideity is what happened between Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, and Angelina Jolie. Brad and Angelina met and became close friends while filming the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Jennifer Anniston knew of their developing friendship but did not take it seriously. The end result: the friendship between Brad and Angelina grew into a strong emotional bond which developed into an emotional affair. (They both claimed that they were not sexually involved at the time) The emotional infidelity that developed between them, progressed to sexual infidelity which undermined Brad and Jen’s marriage and ultimately led to their divorce. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been a couple since that time, and have biological and adopted children together.

The lesson here is clear: If you value your marriage or relationship,
