3 Types of Betrayal That End Relationships Instantly 

Our society emphasizes infidelity, but subtle, unseen betrayals often kill relationships.  

Trust and commitment diminish when partners don't select each other daily. They may know of each other's disloyalty but dismiss it as "not as bad as an affair." It's false. Any breach of a committed relationship's trust, respect, and protection can be disastrous.  

1. Emotional cheating

Day-to-day job makes platonic friendships simple. Some term this person a “work wife” or “work husband.” Even gym or coffee shop friendships might harm household bonds.  

Partner withdrawal doesn't make couples feel supported. They don't think their partner cares about them or has their back. When this happens, the deceived partner often blames a trigger instead than the lack of commitment.  

2. Conditional love

Kristina remembers feeling cheated when her first husband delayed having children. She assumed he was apprehensive about becoming a father, but in couples therapy, he was afraid to commit to her. She clung to him like an anxious lover, scared of losing her marriage until she realized she never had one.  

Emotional disengagement can range from preferring a work meeting over a family funeral to ignoring your partner's needs. A committed relationship demands both spouses to support each other through life-changing traumas and daily troubles. That includes celebrating triumphs and happiness with your partner.  

3. Emotional withdrawal

Everyone expresses himself differently. Both partners must discover and communicate these preferences in a committed relationship to understand what the other needs to feel loved, protected, and supported. Consider The Five Love Languages.  

Dr. Gottman found in his experiment that happy couples leaned toward each other 86% of the time, while unhappy ones turned only 33%. Unhappy couples withdraw 67% of the time! Ignoring bids causes emotional withdrawal.
