Infidelity Again!

by Reena Sommer

The fallout of infidelity and extramarital affairs is heart-wrenching and traumatic.

But did you know that it could happen again if you don't recognize the signs!

Did you know that the majority of people who experience infidelity in their relationships will likely experience it again - even if they move on to other relationships!!

Pretty unbelievable - but unfortunately, it's the truth.

One would think that getting badly burned once would be enough.

But that's not quite the way it happens for many....

There ARE reasons for why infidelity, adultery and extra marital affairs often become a repeated pattern for some people in relationships and not in others.

People are complicated and things are not always as they appear.

Nevertheless, a relationship's vulnerability to infidelity comes down to the following major three factors...

ONE - People's choices in a partner or spouse are not in line with what they need or want, or with what their spouse or partner can give them.

In other words, there is a mismatch along the important dimension of emotional intimacy.

TWO - People fail to make their relationships a priority by putting the time and energy into them that they need. That leaves them open for infidelity and cheating to take root.

THREE - People fail to understand the issues that lead to the infidelity, adultery and extra marital affair in the first place. They also don't see the part they played in the relationship's failure.

For many people, it is easier to blame someone else for things that went wrong rather than looking inward for understanding.

Does any of this ring a bell?

If it does, then it's time to pay attention. Goodness knows, you don't need another round of the heartache and grief that comes with infidelity and extra marital affairs
