They may feel that no matter what they do, they cannot or, are not getting what they feel they need from the relationship.
If you hear these words, a big warning bell should go off.
This is one of the most consistent things a cheating spouse will say.
Your spouse may have a deep, loving bond with you but, intense feelings of passion can override the bond with you and cause your spouse to lose sight of his/her true feelings.
You have a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach, something is not right but you can't quite figure out what that feeling is about.
Your spouse has become distant, he/she is working late on a regular basis or, maybe your spouse has moved out of the house with no explanation.
You suspect your spouse is cheating but every time you bring it up with your spouse, he/she denies the possibility.
All the signs are there but you don't have any proof.
The cheating spouse will develop what I call hormone - induced amnesia.
The surging hormones and passion they feel in their new relationship can cause some very skewed thinking.
This is what I feel happens in many relationships that fall victim to infidelity.
The spouse who strays has spent years investing time, emotion and energy in the marriage.
