In either case, a relationship they begin while being separated is just another kind of infidelity.
Men who do not find themselves ever satisfied with only one woman are clearly not likely candidates to change that behavior in the future.
In the midst of a separation, especially if many other people want that relationship to keep going, he may be overwhelmed with indecision and unable to see clearly what is best.
Prior Infidelities Men who have had relationships with other women throughout their committed relationship have either had partners who have regularly left and returned, or have been successful in keeping them clandestine.
Here are some of the cues you need to be aware of: Prior History Volatile, unstable relationships that have had a history of break-ups and re-connections are often laden with unresolved issues.
Intimate partners, who can’t live with each other and can’t live without each other, often take agreed-upon breaks from the relationship from time to time, either with or without other partners while they are separated.
The man in those unfinished relationships may be temporarily available to a new partner, but is highly likely to go back to his other relationship.
Committed partners who still care deeply for one another, on the other hand, often separate because of external stress, worn-out interactions, infidelities, or a slow drift-apart that neither realized could have ended up in a separation.Those drifts can come from so many causes: illness, financial strain, too many obligations without reward, personal insecurities, stages in life that produce self-doubt, boredom, neglect, too much hostility without reparation, or just plain growing apart.Relationships that are new have not had the time for enough negatives to accrue that can outweigh the reasons to stay together.A partner who may have understood a one-night stand that is immediately confessed is less likely to feel as humiliated as one who finds out much later or when a relationship is more established.She will likely assume that person was there from the beginning and the reason for the break-up if her partner asked for the separation.A newly separated partner is often searching for validation and support and cannot see beyond those needs.
