      No Comments on What Is “Cheating” In Today’s Culture?


I talked last time about how we as a culture and society define “Cheating”.

Today let’s talk about how you can isolate and identify the problem and get on with restoring your marriage.

Here are a few questions to help you define whether or not a behavior or action constitutes cheating:

One Way To Fix A Spouses Cheating Propensity.

1)    Is the relationship with the other person open and transparent?

Is the extent of the side relationship concealed from you, or is your spouse very open about the conversations that are had between he/she and the other person?

At heart, most spouses know that if they are sharing intimate conversations with someone other than their spouse, their behavior is wrong. And when a husband or wife makes an effort to hide the truth, then it can be defined as cheating.

2)    Is your spouse becoming angry and defensive?

Is your spouse getting heated when you bring up the question? Or, is he or she starting arguments or acting out of character? This is a means for finding a rationale for cheating.

3)    Is your spouse willing to protect the other relationship—at the expense of your own?

Sure, your spouse may have no choice in who they work with or see in your social group. But if they seem to be choosing the other relationship—when it is clearly damaging their relationship with you—this could be defined as cheating. Your vows were with each other—not a third party, and the allegiance should be to the marriage, first and foremost.

I would like to hear from you about your conversations with your spouse over what is cheating and what’s not…

How have you and your spouse, as a couple, defined cheating?

Have you ever encountered this situation, like the example given above?

When asking your spouse about a relationship, have you encountered resistance? If so, how did your spouse respond when questioned?

Today’s world looks upon relationships outside of marriage differently that we did years ago.

However, the danger still exists. Anything that takes away from, or tarnishes your marriage, not only physical, is emotional adultery.

Remember, most of the time an extra-marital affair does not just happen out of the blue. In fact, most of the times they occur after a relationship has begun outside of the marriage. Just a heads up.

Best regards as you begin healing.
