'Emotional infidelity worse than sexual affairs'

Washington, Sept. 29 : Relationships experts have said that emotional infidelity often is worse than a sexual affair.


Relationship expert Lisa Shield defined emotional infidelity as when a partner went outside the primary relationship to satiate their emotional needs met.

She said that when her husband was into his first marriage, his wife stayed up late into the night talking to her best friend's boyfriend on the phone.

Shield asserted that that her husband used to wake up and hear his first wife laughing and talking about things that she had never shared with him.

The expert said that her husband longed to share this kind of connection with his first wife but it just wasn't there.

Shield said that her husband told her that he was more hurt by his former -wife's emotional infidelity than if she'd had sex with another man, the Huffington Post reported.

She said that physical affairs bad but as damaging as sexual infidelity can be, emotional fidelity is hard thing to build - and when betrayed takes a bigger toll on a relationship.
