Extramarital affairs are not uncommon. They can happen in any relationship and to anyone. Irrespective of your position in the society, you too can find your marriage tangled in the dirty web of infidelity. In spite of the fact that these extramarital affairs are pretty common, still the outlook of the society towards these relationships is quite demeaning and therefore, no one ever openly talks about them. As a result of this hush culture; there are many myths which have developed over time about the concept of infidelity.
Some of the most common myths that one hears about extramarital affairs are as follows:
The Person Was Wanting To Have An Affair
Whenever it comes to light that one of the partners in a marriage is having an affair outside the marriage, it is automatically assumed that that partner was looking to have an affair. This is generally not true. In fact, in most of the cases it has been found, that these affairs happen to those people who were not really looking to step outside their marriage. This is especially true in the case of those partners who cheated with only person outside their marriage, this means that they are not looking for an affair, but genuinely fell in love with someone outside their marriage.
Affair Happens With Someone Younger and Prettier
Another very common myth about extramarital affairs is that, people who cheat on their wives or husbands generally do so with someone, who is younger and prettier than their current partner. This is again not true. It is all about forming a connection and that can happen with anyone. Therefore, your relationship can end not because of someone who is prettier and younger than you, but because, your spouse connected much better with someone who is actually older than you, and not even as pretty as you.
Once Someone Cheats He Or She Will Always Continue Cheating
The society will always tell you that once your husband or wife has cheated on you, you must leave them immediately and never trust them because as per the society, once a cheater always a cheater. However, the fact is that it depends on the personal nature of the person, whether he or she will repeat the same mistake again or not. Therefore, before you decide to end your marriage you need to make sure that your spouse is a permanent cheater and someone who has made one mistake and will never repeat the same ever again.
No Sex Means No Affair
Extramarital affairs do not just mean that your partner has been cheating on you sexually; it also means that he or she has been cheating on you emotionally as well. Therefore, even if there is no physical relationship between your partner and the other person, yet the two of them could be having an affair. Couples should always be on the lookout for these emotional affairs as it is these affairs which are quite intense in nature and getting your partner back from such relationships can be difficult. Physical relationships can end at the drop of a hat.
