10 Ways You’re Being Unfaithful to Your Spouse and You Don’t Even Know It
Marriage can be tough. Having to deal with someone else’s needs on a daily basis, and often having to prioritize them above our own, can create some wear and tear. Naturally, we seek relief from other outlets in our lives. But…what’s normal and what’s encroaching upon your marriage? These are 10 ways that people are often unfaithful, without even realizing it.
1. Talking about significant others behind their backs.
This one is so common that it often creeps in without us even realizing it. The problems start to arise when we do this with someone that we consider attractive. This can become a very dangerous situation, so be extremely mindful about sharing your marital woes with someone.
2. Finding yourself in an inappropriate situation.
Inappropriate situations can occur in the blink of an eye. One likely setting is the classic business trip. On business trips, a lecture or meeting can turn to drinks, thus setting up a tempting situation if there is a co-worker that one fancies. A recent study revealed that 36 percent of men and 13 percent of women cheated on business trips.
3. Developing closeness with an attractive friend.
Do not send constant emails or text messages about your life to an unattached friend who has feelings for you.
4. Dressing up like you’re “on the make.”
This goes for both men and women. Certain ways of wearing clothes can send out signals to others that you’re available. Don’t be that person.
5. Getting an online boyfriend or girlfriend.
