Marriage and Infidelity

In our age, there have been many changes and transformations in our family structure, as in many other areas. The millennial age has brought a lot of chaos and confusion to our lives. The structure, functioning and gender roles of the family have changed. Some families adapted to this situation, while others did not want to disrupt their traditional family structures and resisted change.

In accordance with family law, spouses try to live together for a lifetime in good and bad times, to raise happy children in a happy family environment, as accepted by society, and to ensure the continuation of the generation. Infidelity means that one or both spouses have a secret relationship with an extra-marital partner. More clearly, we can define cheating as one or both parties having an emotional or sexual relationship with another person while in a relationship.

How do people who have been infidelized feel?
– The person’s self-esteem may decrease.
– They may have thoughts of ‘I can’t be the same person anymore, I’m not the same as before’.
– ‘What mistake did I make that happened to me?’ may experience feelings of guilt. He may see his partner’s cheating as only his own fault.
– The deceived person’s bond with other people may be broken or reduced.
– He may be angry with the cheating spouse, the person he cheated on, and himself.
– May experience feelings of inadequacy, hopelessness and depression.

– He may be undecided about continuing or ending his marriage.

– They may be worried about how their children will be affected by this situation, if any, and how their children will be affected by this situation in the future.

– He/she may feel unsuccessful in maintaining the relationship.

As a result of infidelity, some couples decide to divorce, while others continue their marriage. Many factors are taken into account when making this decision. In both cases, psychological support is required. Couples who continue their marriage can apply to mental health specialists working on the subject in order to continue their marriage more happily for both parties, and divorced couples to adapt to their new lives and to change the effects of their current situation.
