Experiencing infidelity in a committed relationship or marriage is a traumatic event without argument. It affects all parties involved in this circle and is even more harmful when children are involved. There are two types of infidelity: physical infidelity and emotional infidelity. The first is considered physical activity. The latter is emotional infidelity, in which the adulterer develops an emotional bond.
If you break the promise to be faithful to your partner, you are committing infidelity. In today’s scenario, a lot of people have stopped looking after their relationships. They are looking for an easy escape from their day-to-day responsibilities, even if they are happy for a second. Willingness to work and rebuild relationships is low.
Our subconscious develops predominantly from 0 to 14 years. How we are in our relationships has been imprinted on us since childhood. Understanding how to be in relationships comes from what we saw around us as children, mainly from our parents. How our parents act and react in their relationships is very unknowingly used by us in our growing years.
Why do people resort to infidelity?
Most of us are aware of the consequences of cheating in a relationship or marriage. Infidelity leads to a broken relationship / marriage, a sense of betrayal, and disrupts parenting. It is harmful to you, your partner and everyone around you, especially if you have children, the effects of infidelity on them become unthinkable.
So why use people?
The reasons could be as complicated as any relationship. Some of the reasons for the person to go this route.
- The person could be unhappy in their relationship or marriage.
- Certain situation forces can lead to infidelity.
- Desire to increase their self-esteem and underlying feelings.
- A lack of communication and expression between partners can lead to frustration.
- The fear of confrontation.
- The birth of a child leads to a change in lifestyle. The mother is more involved in bringing up the child and is less available to the spouse.
- When you experience a lack of respect, support and understanding.
- Dissatisfaction with marriage either emotionally, physically, mentally, or sexually.
- Building and maintaining a marriage takes time and effort. Without maintaining the relationship, the couples could grow apart.
- Frustration in a relationship when your partner doesn’t seem to understand you or your needs.
- Constant quarreling, nagging, over-expectation and attention.
- Lack of appreciation and appreciation for the little things you do for one another.
- Constant interventions and complaints from in-laws can cause the partners to distance themselves.
In a relationship, two people decide to spend their lives together. As they live together longer, stay married longer, and expect more from our partners, the call for more, centered on unwavering, lifelong commitment, grows.
Working through infidelity can often strengthen a relationship. But it’s a massive process for both partners. Saving a relationship takes a lot of work, but it is possible. The person must end the guilt game and take responsibility for themselves to improve ways and adapt to change.
A journey inward to understand your ineptitude and consequences in maintaining a relationship is a must. Before we love or appreciate our partners, it is very important to love and understand ourselves. The only way to feel complete in a relationship is if you can work towards feeling complete within yourself. Every relationship needs a lot of attention, love, care, respect and understanding. Marriage or a living relationship is always in the works. It can never end as we are all constantly changing and adapting to our connections in a timely manner.
