148: What is Cheating in a Relationship?


What Is Cheating in a Relationship

If you’re asking yourself what cheating is, that means you’re already between a rock and a hard place trying to figure out what to do. 

Like, what if he’s sending inappropriate flirty messages to his ex from high school but you know he hasn’t seen her in person?

Or he’s texting a female colleague all the time and won’t show you his phone but says nothing is going on? 

What if you overhear him saying he has feelings for someone else? Or you find out he’s got an online dating profile?

It sure feels icky to know he’s having intimate conversations with a woman who isn’t you. 

Of course you want him to stop before he crosses the line, which brings up some very tough questions: How should you react? Does this mean your husband can’t be faithful? Does it mean he’s going to leave you? Can you even repair things from here, or is your marriage doomed to be another divorce statistic because of his bad decisions? Should you give him an ultimatum that you’ll divorce unless he stops? Or should you try to be understanding but insist on marriage counseling?

On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast, we’re talking about what cheating is in a relationship.

  • I’ll share three expert-approved actions you can take to put things right in your marriage when you’re not sure if your husband is cheating but he’s not exactly being faithful either.
  • To say my guest Brenda was disillusioned about marriage is an understatement. She was resentful about always having to be the responsible one and questioning whether she’d made a good decision to marry her husband in the first place. But then she tried an experiment and was amazed that it led to immediate closeness, connection and the realization that she has a good man. Today she says she has the true partnership she always wanted. She’s going to tell us what she did so you can do it too. 
  • The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week Award goes to some familiar tripe meant to help a woman who’s anguished about her husband not coming to bed at the same time as her.
