    How do you cope with a spouse who has cheated emotionally?

    This is how I feel. Other's may feel differently. I think this is such a betrayal. I think this would be harder to get over than a physical affair. For me, any type of cheating is a deal breaker because the trust is gone. Without trust, you have nothing. I have been through betrayal and still have trust issues. It's just so sad that one's spouse doesn't think about the other and how they would feel if it were happening to them. I'm so sorry if this has happened to you. Good luck.

      Thank you, I feel the same. Emotional is worse than physical.

    Depends... has the spouse acted on the emotions?  ... If not the emotional and/or devotional ties to their husband or wife are stronger.   That is certainly deserving of some merit.    Whatever the case, I would definitely suggest couples therapy.

    Every experience is an opportunity for learning and growth. And I understand that this one runs deep. The best thing to do is to point the finger at oneself. Go within and heal that within yourself that has called this into your experience. I know you know what I'm talking about - you've had that gnawing fear that this would happen. No one is to blame here. But this is a beautiful place to begin the healing. Its so easy to love so let's hold that as the goal. Take this time for yourself to get to know you better - your true needs, your expectations, your true ideal for the way you want your relationship to be. Let your partner off the hook for now, and look within. Now's the time for self-healing - solo yoga, walks in nature, meditation classes, all the things you've been putting off. Its time to nurture you. And in time, you'll be ready to address this issue with your partner, after the dust settles and you feel much more clear. Hugs
