My husband is having an emotional affair. There, I've said it. Actually, if we're being perfectly honest, it's three emotional affairs and they're all with cooking show honeys. I'll refer to them as the Southern Sweetie, the Pioneer Person, and the Italian Temptress.
It turns out that feeling understood on the level of the soul is far more sexy than sex itself. Restoring such excitement to the marriage is the best recourse for those who want to go on enjoying the privilege of having a partner throughout life.
Most couples dealing with the aftermath of an affair express sexual affairs not involving emotional attachments are easier to overcome than those which have involved the betrayal of emotions. After all, this intimacy and trust are the heart of relationship.
I know a woman who recently asked her husband to either give her his Facebook password or close out his account after she found an email that he had sent to a former classmate that she found to be rather suggestive. He thought it was perfectly appropriate. Who's right?
