Will you be more afraid if your spouse was involved in a "one night stand" or an "emotional affair?"

An emotional affair of course. A one night stand wouldn´t make him want to leave me. (Well I would hope not!) A one night stand is like scratching an itch I guess as opposed to emotions. I´m not saying I wouldn´t leave HIM for doing that, just comparing the 2.

Ultimately they both lead to divorce - it depends if the affair is found out and how much it affects the relationship. But if one partner meets someone and prefers them to his current partner, the marriage might not have been sufficiently strong in the first place.

An emotional affair can lead to your husband or wife leaving you. I know of a case where two people started out as good friends (male/female). They had a lot in common and talked often on the phone and in e-mails. It was not long before they met for lunch one day, (he traveled six hours to see her), and ended up in bed together. They both knew that it was wrong and tried to break it off, but they became more involved with each other. Now, they are talking about leaving thier spouses so that they can be together. They were both married to abusive people. So, an emotional affair is more dangerous. Sometimes you can't help who you fall in love with.
