A Puzzle To Me

Relationship Experts

I can't help but notice that this site as well as many others is saturated with authors who are making a living writing articles and books about how to find out if your mate is cheating on you. There are lists and signs and steps to saving your marriage or getting evidence to end it.

If you are married to someone don't you think the emotional distance would be obvious? It is just common sense that if a couple is not emotionally close to each other there is going to be a likelihood that they will be close to someone else? Are people so dense that they don't even know when they are distant in soul from their mate? And why, why, would you want to chain someone up and force them to stay in a relationship they obviously don't want?

I'll tell you why so many want to unearth some kind of infidelity. They are money and power hungry, they want it all and they are not satisfied to realize that love is no longer there between them and to end things with a fair settlement. They want all the money, all the property, all the alligence of family all the emotional control over the other person. If they can prove infidelity then they stand a chance of getting it ALL.

Infidelity has become the legal and moral yardstick of what is or is not acceptable and what will exact a price in material possessions and family loyalty. It overshadows everything else. Nevermind if the "Innocent" spouse has been cold and devoid of all respect. It's of no consequence if they have been abusive emotionally or verbally and in some cases, physically. The scapegoat becomes infidelity.

Am I advocating ignoring it, no, but I'm saying, get real people. If love is gone, if disrespect and abuse are a way of life and communication is non-existent do you really need a book to help you understand that your mate's heart no longer belongs to you even if they have never become involved emotionally with anyone else or touched another person romantically?

Some things can be salvaged perhaps, but some things need to just peacefully and equitably end. Most situations could be resolved fairly, if the couple involved were willing to do so. If people were being ruled by common sense and emotional rationality, instead of the greed for money, property and family loyalty would we need all these "How to" books on relationships?

If love is gone why try to feed or beat a dead horse? Do we really need all these experts to tell us that?

Like you, my dearest LaBelle, I don’t believe in such a thing as “absence of signs” of deterioration or emotional estrangement in a marriage (or indeed any equivalent relationship). What happens, in too many cases, is that, for a wide and varied number of reasons, such signs (some more subtle, yes, but others rather obvious) are simply ignored, or dismissed – especially when one of the partners does not spend her or his time bitching or complaining about the other or the relationship, has given up trying to discuss any issues with the other because he or she has grown weary of the scenes that would usually trigger, and simply withdraws – or then begins to focus his or her interest and attention on a “world” outside the relationship, which, as hard as it may be for many to believe or even care to understand, does not always and necessarily include “illicit” relationships (infidelity). I also have to concur, however, on the high likelihood of a partner (or even both) becoming close to someone else when they are no longer emotionally close to one another – and it would not be sensible to disregard the probability of that closeness to someone else actually evolving into the need and the desire to share one’s life with them. In any case, if the relationship (marriage or equivalent) has indeed reached a point when it cannot be recovered and is obviously not going to work anymore as such, because, as you so wisely point out, it simply ceased to be wanted, it seems like the most reasonable and honest option would be for the couple to agree on ending it, on decent and equitable terms. This is a perfectly feasible and fair solution, providing – again, as you point out - both elements of the couple involved are willing to pursue it. If, however, one of them is intent, instead, on starting a war and nurturing it in and out of court – which can happen for the reasons you suggest and also due to other negative motivations – then a respectable, fair outcome becomes very difficult, if not impossible, to achieve. It is too bad that options like the latter really turn out to be the ones encouraged by so many of those tendentious “How To” books, articles, and shows – and that so many people fail to see that, by feeding such negative attitudes with their paranoid concepts, these so-called, greatly questionable “experts” are only and really making “fat and luscious” what in turn, and simultaneously, provides them with the “feed” on which they thrive, like maggots, and proliferate. Like you, my wise friend, I would urge people to get real – and aware. And I commend and thank you, wholeheartedly, for this realistic and intelligent approach. With my admiration and respect, along with lots of love & {{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}},

Experts cant give you sure fire signs to whats going on in your relationship.
It all comes down to you gut feelings.

I don't need to read one of those books.
I know just what my wife is up too.
She trys to be sneaky, and clever about it, but she can't hide it.
She wants the land, house, and money. She won't
even talk to me about setting up a will. I thinks she
figures I'll die first.
She always tells people who call, "oh everything is just fine."
When she knows damn well it's not. She hasn't taken over any contol
in this family, but would love to. She never pays on any bills,
ever. I bought this house and land.
She makes our kids think like her, just never say anything and
just keep old Dad guessing
I don't think she has cheated on me, but I'm going to on her. I mean she cut out sex in 2000, every once in a while gives head.
She has stopped that now. She is always trying to push my buttons,
but that doesn't work for her anymore.
The woman shows no compassion or love.
I love my kids, and that is the only reason I'm here.
I've give my all to this woman, feelings, etc.
I have to hound her if she ever tells me how she really feels about s
something. And then I don't get a straight answer.
sorry to go on so long La Belle..

Experts, they needed to go somewhere, the first said "we can't go up"
the second said, "we certainly can't go dow!" "Well", said the third, "going left is out of question" "And," said the fourth, "going right will take us nowhere" "going forward has taken us no where so we stopped, forward? no more!" "hey"," said the fifth, " we can't possible go back, it will make us look like morons!"
The experts went nowhere, but they are writing books about How To Go To Nowhere.
Nice piece, Red Head.
