When your partner is having an intimate connection with someone other than yourself and there are emotions involved in their connection with some intensity, then it is quite possible that they are having an emotional affair. It is a very difficult situation for many because it is difficult to confront or accuse your partner of doing anything wrong. Since this is not a physical relationship, the situation is much more complicated than infidelity.
But on the other hand, just the thought that your partner has given their heart and feelings to someone else is much more shocking than hearing that your partner has slept with someone else.
How to know if it is an emotional affair?
Your partner can give you the argument that they are allowed to have a best friend of the opposite sex, which is a valid argument. But the best way to find out if it is truly an emotional affair they will know that they are doing something wrong and will make an attempt to conceal their relationship from you.
The best way to be sure if it’s an emotional affair is to ask you this. Is the relationship concealed from you or is it transparent to you? If your wife gets a message from the other guy does she announce it before reading it that it’s from her friend who understands her? If your husband gets a call from the other girl, does he go to some other room to talk or talks in front of you?
In most cases, the relationship is concealed from their spouse. It’s because the cheater knows that they are doing something wrong and will try to hide it from you. And if you try to snoop into their privacy or stumble upon some evidence, they will accuse you of snooping and not trusting them, or they might use the argument that they are allowed to have a best friend of the opposite sex.

The affair happened for a reason. Your husband or wife didn’t get in the relationship what they wanted so they had to search for it somewhere else.
