When it comes to an emotional affair, too many marriages fail to see the potential problems until it's too late. There is an assumption that since it's not acted upon, it isn't real. That could not be further from the truth. There are all kinds of reasons that emotional cheating needs to be handled swiftly and decisively. These are just a few of them.

1) Emotional cheating involves the heart and mind rather than the body. More importantly for some people, the lack of physical consummation is a mere technicality or matter of logistics. This is often the case with cyber relationships or online affairs. They are no less devastating because sexual contact has not occurred. Some may even be more intense in anticipation of the day when the relationship can be consummated. But the heart and mind are the most powerful tools there are when it comes to love. Without those, your marriage is a shell and the real relationship lies within an emotional affair with someone else.]

2) The more time spent building that emotional affair is less time that is spent working on your own marriage. Your marriage is the most important relationship you'll ever have in your life. The only other relationship that will even come close is the one you have with your children. While they will always be your children, they will eventually move on and have families of their own. Your marriage partner though is the one person who should remain with you long after the kids are grown and gone. This is the relationship you need to be building better emotions with and not some anonymous relationship miles away or forbidden relationship down the road.

3) Emotional infidelity can destroy marriages. In fact, these types of affairs do destroy marriages every day. This is the fastest rising reason stated for divorces today. These affairs are often easy to prove and the devastation they cause to the family is intense.

4) The time you devote to emotional cheating is time when distance is allowed to come between you and your spouse and family at home. The more wrapped up and involved you become in the life of the person you're having an emotional affair with, the less in touch and connected you become to your spouse and family.

5) It's all about intent. If you had the opportunity to go ahead and consummate the affair, would you? For most people in this situation the answer would be "yes" without blinking. There are some who would say no for fear of crossing some line in the sane of morality but for the most part, people having emotional affairs are only keeping it emotional because other opportunities have not yet arisen.

An emotional affair can destroy your marriage if you don't do something fast to get your ex back and try to save the marriage you've created.
