Is it ever possible to be “just friends” with the opposite sex? It didn’t work for Ross and Rachel or for Harry and Sally, and chances are it won’t work with the friend you’ve made outside of your marriage. MSNBC’s relationship columnist Brian Alexander responded to two readers this week who had questions about “emotional cheating” where one partner looks for comfort outside of the relationship.
Alexander responded by telling them that when people resort to physical cheating it’s oftentimes with someone who was a former confidant and that men and women have different takes on whether or not this is acceptable.
Well, he forgot to mention that if you’re at the point where you need to look outside of your marriage for a kindred spirit, its time to examine your relationship.
An un-scientific MSNBC poll on the same subject found that out of 446 survey respondents 46% said that emotional and physical affairs are equally awful. Which is worse for you, emotional or physical cheating? [MSNBC]
