Emotional infidelity, also known as “emotional affair” or “extramarital emotional involvement”, is an affair without any physical connection. Two people trade deep and personal intimacies, instead of having sexual relations.
Emotional infidelity starts when two people communicate intimately about problems in their respective marriages. The topics of discussion involve things they are unwilling to confide to their spouses. This causes their emotional relationship to become deeper, pulling the two parties closer to a sexual relationship.
People usually find deep emotional connections in office,with colleagues, and on the Internet. Sharing personal information with strangers online is very common among married women and men.
