Gail Saltz, clinical associate professor of psychiatry at New York–Presbyterian Hospital, and the author of Anatomy of a Secret Life: The Psychology of Living a Lie, contributed to Oprah.com with an article focusing on the hurtful effects of emotional infidelity.
Some think, “I haven’t had any physical contact with anyone else, so it’s not cheating.” Wrong. According to Saltz, “Emotional cheating (with an ‘office husband,’ a chat room lover, or a newly appealing ex) steers clear of physical intimacy, but it does involve secrecy, deception, and therefore betrayal. People enmeshed in nonsexual affairs preserve their ‘deniability,’ convincing themselves they don’t have to change anything. That’s where they’re wrong. If you think about it, it’s the breach of trust, more than the sex, that’s the most painful aspect of an affair and, I can tell you from my work as a psychiatrist, the most difficult to recover from.”
Maybe your spouse is feeling mundane in the relationship, bored, frustrated, isolated, etc. There comes a time when some people decide that “it is what it is” and steer clear of attempting to improve their marriage. This opens up the door to trouble, and according to Saltz, “while they aren’t consciously in the market, they are ripe for an affair of the heart: hungry for attention, craving excitement, and eager for someone to fill the emptiness they feel inside.”
Your spouse may rely on another person for the emotional satisfaction that is no longer provided to them. Saltz is finding that this type of infidelity is becoming alarmingly common. And with today’s technology and an abundance of ways to privately connect with other individuals, emotional affairs (with can and do turn into sexual ones) are taking a toll on marriages everywhere.

Huffington Post Divorce posted the findings of a study conducted by Texas A&M University which concluded that a male’s stronger sexual impulses could be to blame for his cheating habits, not his lack of self-control.
The first of two studies asked 70 males and 149 females how they responded to past sexual temptations.
The authors of the study, Natasha Tidwell and Paul Eastwick, concluded that men and women have no evident differences in self-control. However…
According to Tidwell, “When men reflected on their past sexual behavior, they reported experiencing relatively stronger impulses and acting on those impulses more than women did.”
Eastwick pointed out that men cheat most often because they give in to their sexual impulses. “Men have plenty of self-control — just as much as women. However, if men fail to use self-control, their sexual impulses can be quite strong. This is often the situation when cheating occurs,” Eastwick explained.
The second study consisted of 326 men and 274 women given a rapid-response test. During the test, researchers showed participants photos of generally attractive/desirable potential romantic partners, as well as generally unattractive/undesirable potential romantic partners. Each photo was also accompanied by computer-generated compatibility information. The participants were asked whether or not they’d like to enter into a romantic relationship with that person.
The study found that, “men were more likely to accept attractive people, regardless of whether the computer deemed them a good or bad match. According to the researchers, this indicates that men have a stronger impulse to become romantically involved with desirable individuals even if the relationship would be bad — like an affair would be.”

GQ featured an article referring new data compiled from the most popular dating site for people looking for extramarital affairs, AshleyMadison.com.
According to GQ…cheaters cheat for disappointingly predictable and unentertaining reasons, such as…”because they’re rich and they just want to, okay?”
AshleyMadison surveyed 53,000 members and revealed that “80.3 percent of male cheaters and 72.3 percent of females out-earn their spouses, and 81% of males and 77 percent of females spend more than $500 on their cheating partners. By comparison, only 47 percent of men surveyed and 40% of women spend as much on their spouses.”
AshleyMadison’s founder and CEO, Noel Biderman, says, “We were not entirely surprised by the findings since cheaters are often the well-connected earners who have the means to do what they want.”
Another interesting tidbit. Over 50% of the cheaters have 300+ LinkedIn connections. And according to GQ, it’s “because that’s the kind of people they are. People who really enjoy spending time on the website LinkedIn. You know, super exciting people.”
