Mothers Can Be Affected by Infidelity in Ways

It's a sobering thought for Mother's Day, but infidelity can affect a mother in 3 ways -- psychologically, physically and financially.Psychologically If a woman's husband is cheating on her, it can lead to psychological issues which can negatively impact the way she interacts with her children. It's difficult for a woman to be a good mother when she's trying to work through the issues of her husband's affair. A mother can become so emotionally distraught that she's unable to give her children the care and attention they need. Infidelity in a marriage can also cause psychological problems in children such as anxiety, depression, or eating disorders, with which a mother will have to cope.

Physically A man having an affair, who engages in unprotected sex, puts the mother of his children at risk for HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases (STD's). If a mother's health deteriorates she will be unable to care for her children. If she's pregnant, STD's can jeopardize the health of her unborn child. Some STD's, like chlamydia can even affect a woman's ability to become a mother, by rendering her incapable of having children.

Financially If infidelity leads to separation or divorce, it could affect the ability of a mother to financially provide for her child ? especially if her husband refuses to meet his financial obligations. Without the father's income, a mother may be unable to support her children in the manner to which she has been accustomed. She may even have to work outside the home, or take second job, which will limit the amount of time she can spend with her children. An unexpected divorce or separation can put an unsuspecting wife and mother in a serious financial bind when it comes to living arrangements, health care, and the children's education.Don't Be the Last to Know.
