Are You Having a "Cyber" Affair Behind Your Wife's Back?

April 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 178

Before the Internet, everyone could agree on the definition of an extramarital affair. But now, there are a million ways to cheat on your spouse, and many of them involve cyberspace. That has led many to wonder if talking about sex and flirting with women online actually constitutes an affair, since you haven't actually met and touched each other.

Yes, it does constitute an affair. It is still a betrayal of your vows to "forsake all others" because you are involved in a relationship, or relationships, with someone who is not your wife. Many of these online affairs begin with two people talking back and forth and becoming emotionally close. This is no different than the man or woman who gets close to someone they work with, sharing feelings over lunch and coffee. After all, an extramarital affair rarely begins with sex immediately. It is usually a gradual progression of a relationship that turns sexual.

It is distressing to know that many married men are using the Internet for affairs these days, because unlike the gradual workplace affair, online affairs usually become sexual in nature rather quickly due to the anonymity involved. Men are going online specifically to flirt as they search for a woman who will talk to them about sex and hopefully, one day meet up for it.

So, are you having an affair behind your wife's back? You are having a cyber affair if...

  • You communicate one-on-one with women using a chat platform-and the conversation is sexual and flirty in nature.
  • You have a secret email address you use to communicate with other women.
  • You have sent intimate photos of yourself to another woman, and/or another woman has sent intimate photos of herself to you.
  • You are having conversations with women online that you would not want your wife, your children, your parents, or your co-workers to know about.
  • You check your computer frequently with anticipation, hoping a woman has responded to your message.
  • You are spending more time on the computer and less time with your wife and family.
  • You have created a profile on a dating site.
  • You are discussing the possibility of meeting a woman face to face.

If you are engaged in any of these activities, you are having a cyber affair behind your wife's back. Now is the time to look seriously at what you are doing and stop all actions towards an affair, immediately. It is not too late to cut off all contact with women other than your wife and work on saving your marriage.
