What Is Romantic Infidelity?

Learn what romantic infidelity is from couples counselor Victoria Wilson, Ph.D. in this Howcast video.


Romantic infidelity is the most dangerous to the primary relationship, because it is what we call is an affair of the heart. People who experience romantic infidelity develop very strong feelings for the person they're cheating with. They may feel limerence, love, desire, passion and a sense that they belong together.

These types of infidelities usually threaten the primary relationship, which very seldom survives the romantic affair, because people who are involved in romantic type of affairs usually feel that this person is their soul mate, and they're meant to be.
