Effects of extramarital affairs cannot be overemphasized, in that it affects every member of the family either the one cheated or who cheats and also the children. The financial or the economic status of the family is affected. This is because the little income for the family would have to be shared to feed the family members and the one(s) outside. Man’s extravagant spending for his outside lovers may prevent him from taking care of his family. A spouse involving in extramarital affairs will not have much time for his/her partner and this may lead to loneliness on the parts of the cheated one. This is common when there are children in the family. Here, children tends to suffer the most since they will be separated from one of their parent incase of divorce. They tend to experience depression especially if violence between the two parents arises.
