Joyce Marter, licensed psychotherapist and CEO of Urban Balance, says the following behaviors may indicate a rift in the relationship that’s beyond repair:

  • Cheating is a pattern. “This could suggest a chronic issue like a serious sex or love addiction or a personality disorder such as narcissism or even sociopathy (in cases of lying and betrayal with no remorse).”
  • “They are no longer in love with you and/or are in love with somebody else.”
  • “There is the presence of emotional, physical or sexual abuse or violence. Abuse is never okay. If your partner is saying they cheated because you somehow made them, this is a sign of emotional abuse. Seek treatment right away.”
