I am aware that my wife is having an emotional affair, but I am unsure of the approach I should take. I did not know if an emotional affair is considered cheating and if I had the right to ask my wife to end the relationship. My story will show you how I was able to gain the knowledge needed to handle my unique situation. My name is David and I am writing as a guest blogger for Marriage Fitness. I would like to start by explaining the history of our relationship. My wife and I went through a rough patch in our early dating days. She cheated on me once and promised it would never happen again. We have a really strong bond that is based on honesty and trust, therefore I believed her promise.
My wife began to get close with a male coworker. She would go out alone with him way too often and would constantly stay up late on the phone with him. She would never invite out with them and would not speak to him in front of me. Any time she had an issue, she would run to her male friend instead of me. When I realized that my wife is having an emotional affair all of the hurt came back to me. Yes, I honestly believed my wife’s promise not to cheat again, but I was still nervous that it may happen again one day. I knew how hard it was to be hurt this way and I was terrified of feeling it again. I told her that I would forgive and forget, but the truth is this was harder than I expected.
My wife means the world to me and I want her back. I love her with all my heart but my wife is having an emotional affair. I was terrified of the predicament I was in. My wife really valued her friendship with her male coworker. If I asked her to end her relationship, I would either come across as the jealous husband or it might sway her to leave me for him. It was a losing scenario either way. I could not make this decision alone. Without accusing her, I begged my wife to join me in marriage counseling. My wife told me that I should not worry and that she thought we didn’t need help. I strongly disagreed and was going to get professional advice.
I found a program where I was able to fix my marriage without my wife by my side. Marriage Fitness Tele Boot Camp successfully guided me through my unique situation. The program helped me win my wife’s love and attention back. After completing the boot camp, my wife willingly ended her emotional affair. I am so thankful that we were able to get the help we needed from Marriage Fitness. I do not know where my wife and I would be without it.
It was the darkest time of my life. You always hear “it takes two” and my husband was not interested. Ultimately, I changed so much…our marriage is better than it was…because of Mort’s help.
