Marital Problems and Trust Issues
Dealing with Jealousy before it Ruins Your Relationship

Infidelity | Marital Problems | Dealing with Jealousy | Trust IssuesAlmost nothing compares to the kind of marital problems the big green monster can trigger in a relationship. Relationships come with all kinds of emotions - love, joy, anger, sadness, and yes, jealousy too.

Dealing with jealousy, at times, is a natural part of being in a relationship. However, when trust issues are the rule and not the exception, it is time to examine whether these are normal marital problems, or something more serious like infidelity.

Infidelity: Fact or Fiction?

Sometimes trust issues surface because of our own insecurities, but other times infidelity is real. If you find yourself dealing with jealousy and marital problems on a continuous basis, it is a good idea to check in with yourself to determine if you're making a mountain out of a molehill or if you have real cause for concern about infidelity in your relationship. Let's take a closer look.

Some Signs of Infidelity

1. Inconsistent information - If your trust issues stem from the fact that your partner's story keeps changing, this could be more than just a hunch. People who cheat have a hard time keeping track of their lies after awhile.

2. Intimacy Issues - Lack of intimacy could signal infidelity. If you are having significantly less sex and your partner becomes less affectionate, they might be giving all their attention to someone else.

3. Your sixth sense is working overtime - Though dealing with jealousy from time to time is natural, if your gut is telling you something is wrong, don't ignore it. If you have a strong feeling that your partner is cheating, it makes sense to at least question them about it. It may turn out that infidelity is not an issue, but there may be another problem that should be confronted.

4. They're acting secretive - If your partner is anxious about you looking over their shoulder when they check their email, they leave the room to take cell phone calls, they are vague about where they've been and where they are going, or exhibit other suspicious behavior, you could be dealing with infidelity.

5. Guilt Gifting - Guilt leads people to act in different ways. Some people deal with the guilt of infidelity by giving their partners lavish gifts to make up for the intimacy they are not giving them.

6. They've cheated before - While the old saying, "once a cheater, always a cheater" isn't always the case, statistics show that 15-20% of cheaters cheat again. If your partner has cheated in past relationships, be skeptical.

Resolving Trust Issues

Whether your spouse is truly playing the infidelity game, or you are projecting your own insecurities onto the relationship, professional counseling can help you sort through it all. A Life Coach or counselor can work with you and your spouse to resolve marital problems that can stem from or contribute to infidelity. They can help you determine if your marriage can be saved or if the damage is too great.

When trust issues are more fiction than fact, it may also be time to seek some help. Everyone brings their unique baggage into a relationship and some baggage is more destructive than others. If you are having marital problems because of infidelity in a past relationship or trust issues from your past, a Life Coach can help you work through this before it destroys your marriage.
