There are all sorts of factors that can contribute to a couple’s decision to split up, whether the decision is mutual or one party is determined to move on from the marriage. Infidelity is a major reason why many couples end their marriage and people do not always have affairs that are physical in nature, but some may be emotional. In the digital age, there are many different apps and new methods of communication, such as video chat, which can make it easier for people to have these types of affairs with others from across the globe.

If you found out that your partner was having an emotional affair, you may be devastated. Anger, depression and anxiety may arise in the wake of this discovery and you could be affected by this affair to such an extent that you no longer want to remain married.
