The Capricorn man is typically quite selective and has a high moral system in place. It’s highly unlikely for him to fall in love with someone else or even sleep with anyone else if he is married. He’d have to be pretty unhappy to do such a thing even then; the guilt would get to him. Would a married Capricorn man be in love with another woman? Keep reading to find out more!
Why Would a Capricorn Man Stray?
It’s a very rare situation that a Capricorn man would have sex with someone outside of his marriage much less fall in love with someone else. He’s pretty dedicated and holds his head high with integrity.
With that in mind, what would make a normally loyal Capricorn man find interested in another woman? There are some fairly rare situations that may make him look when he normally wouldn’t.
One of those things would be if he’s been married for many years and his wife has become sexless with him. This could make him seek out to satisfy his sexual urges. He won’t feel good about it though and it likely won’t last.
The Capricorn man is still a man. That means he has certain desires that need to be met and if he doesn’t take care of the matter himself, he may look or be vulnerable to a woman that comes on to him.
Capricorn men develop emotions for women they sleep with because typically they don’t have sex unless there ARE feelings there. This can swing the other direction though if he’s in a rare situation.
He’d find someone he’s really attracted to via social media, bar, etc. He may get to talking to her with pure intention but then she starts coming onto him and he finds he’s starting to become attracted to her.
The wife at home is very cold toward him and wants nothing to do with him. So he is eating up the attention he’s getting from this new woman who is intriguing and very sexy.
She convinces him to have a fling with him and even though he knows it’s not right, he gives in to temptation because he thinks that maybe this could work. He starts developing feelings for her, however.
If he really still loves his wife and has no intention of ever divorcing her, he will likely break things off with this other woman because he knows he can’t live with himself if he continues.
Other Reasons a Capricorn Man May Tempt Fate
If the Capricorn man is still fairly young and got married before he could actually explore life and other women, he may start to feel pent up or trapped. Again, this is sort of rare so bear with me.
Perhaps he goes out places with his wife and he starts eyeballing other women just because he wasn’t able to spread his seed before he got hitched and closed himself off.
These other women are irresistible and quite drawing him in. At some point one of these women may approach him and start giving him some attention that maybe his wife isn’t giving him and he feels very turned on.
He confuses this being turned on with having feelings for this woman. He may have a brief fling but seems to develop love or what he thinks is love. Even if they don’t keep it going, he may still carry this feeling with him.
There is also the possibility of him still having love for an ex of his that never left his heart. Now he’s gotten married but still keeps missing her. What does he do? He may try to get together with her to find out if she still loves him too.
Capricorn Men’s Love is Complicated
When the Capricorn man isn’t happy in the marriage he’s in, he’s susceptible to women who may seem rather tempting or that they could be a better match for him which puts him in a position to figure out what he should do next.
He may fall in love with another woman who seems to be a far better fit for him. It’s likely he’ll carry on a friendship with her and he may never actually tell her he loves her nor sleep with her.
In other words, his love for her may remain a big secret that he holds for many years because he knows it would hurt his wife and knows that he would be betraying her.
He keeps his mouth shut, he has this friendship with the woman he actually fell in love with and is able to talk to her without fear of consequences since it’s sexless and he hasn’t crossed any lines.
How to Tell if Capricorn Man is in Love with Another Woman
If the Capricorn man starts to act colder toward you, flippant, or as though he’s too busy to spend time with you, there may be something going on. He’s not really that good at hiding himself when he’s in love.
He can pull it off but he’ll have to work hard to convince you that he’s still all yours. Sadly, if you see him checking his phone often as though he’s waiting on a call, there may be something there.
Naturally if it’s something work related it won’t become a habit. However, if you notice that he now has a habit of carrying his phone very close to him at all times and always on it, there is something going on.
Also if he stops having as much sex with you out of nowhere, something is up. If he’s in love with another woman, he’s not going to give you as much time or attention physically.
He may be on the computer more than he was before also. Watch his social media activity. If he went from barely posting to suddenly being very present, something may be up.
You can even check into what he’s posting, what photos he’s liking, and if there is someone he’s seemingly talking to more. Trust the red flags you see or feel!

Your friend and Relationship Astrologer,
Omg, this article is so on point from what I understand about my Capricorn man
Thank you for writing in and affirming that this seems to fit your Capricorn man. You know, I have many other treasures I’d like to share with you regarding this heartthrob of a man. Not only do I have more articles but I have books! If you would like to see what else I’ve written about Capricorn man, you can check out my series “Capricorn Man Secrets”.
Love your blogs. Would love to ask you some advice !
I think you have a window into my life. I’m a Virgo sun/cancer moon/Pisces ascended. Married young to a Capricorn sun/Sagittarius moon man.
All you describe here is true, but really I didn’t notice until 3-4 years ago.
He doesn’t sleep around, he just gets himself in these emotional affairs with women who give him attention.
We had a beautiful family, two kids, financial security and white picket fence.
He had no intentions of divorcing me or leaving me ( his words) he just felt wanted.
I noticed his behavior changing. After more than 20 years together one know. He drop them (it take him a while) it has been 4 of these not appropriate friendships, that I know.
I am on the fence of understanding if leaving him for good is a good idea. He wants to change, but he is stubborn and don’t do anything to facilitate a true change.
Anyhow. The only thing I wanted to say, we were not sexless. He felt I didn’t value him for sometime and then poof, the other female attention became his thing, which I don’t know if we ever will recover from.
An emotional affair is still an affair. He’s turning to other women to fulfill his emotional needs. It’s still not right. Change has to come from him and if it doesn’t then yes, you need to figure out if it’s worth staying with him. Only you can decide that. Stubborn is one thing but when he purposefully does something he knows is wrong, do you think he’ll ever change that? Sit down with him and ask him flat out if he wants to be with you or not. If he says yes then tell him he needs to make changes. If he still doesn’t then he may be a lost cause. Need more Capricorn man information? Check out “Capricorn Man Secrets”.
I’ve been in a relationship with my Capricorn man for about 14 months. We have overall had a great relationship up until about 2 months ago. I never assumed he was cheating on me until late June. I did some snooping and found out that he was. I lost it and said some very disrespectful things to him. But it was out of hurt. I never literally meant what I said to him. He said that he feels that I don’t respect him. I found out that he sees this woman at least 3 times a week. Sleeps over her house but leaves very early in the morning and returns to me. I have confronted him about his affaire and he swears its not what I think. I believe they are sexually involved. I have tried to leave him but he says he loves me and I have his heart therefore I’m not going anywhere. I don’t want to leave him but I can’t deal with hum constantly seeing this other woman. He told me that she treats him kind and that may be the reason for his affair with her. I just want him to leave her alone.
I am so sorry you’re going through this. It hurts me to know you’re going to stay with someone you feel intuitively is messing around on you though. Even if you do have his heart, you should also have the rest of him 100% not some of the time. I think I’d be telling him no more of her PERIOD if he wants to keep you happy. See what he does when you tell him that and then decide from there. You deserve to be someone’s one and only not “another choice” or a “fallback”. I wish you all the luck in the world sweetheart.
I met at work a capri, he was shy, went for 2 months being just coworkers, then 1 day he was happy as he saw me he said oh there she is, then he went outside and stopped me i was starting to leave in my car, he said he wanted a friend to talk i gave him my number, then i realized to ask, are you married he said yes so i told him i could not be his friend cause he is married i left. I was reaching walmart and it was him calling he said you are too beautiful to take chance to loose you so he went shopping with me he asked first, we talked so much, it was so easy so i put boundaries specially that i don’t date if he wants it has to be forever no one night stand he thought about it few days then one day we both wanted more the relationship was the 1 st and only i have ever been so happy he told me his secrets that not even his wife knew. We fell so deep in love he even told me to let my kids know that and we were planning our life he was going to my daughters wedding he texted he felt alive happy wanting to live then one day he was strong still his wife found out by putting a tracker on his phone she left me threats really ghetto person i understood then why he loved my nails hair and legs when i saw her picture i had to involve police and send letter to desist, she broke his phone i had it on voicemail thank God i saved text & voicemails she called police trying to get me arrested for involved with her family as a stalker the officer said i was a victim in all this thank God

Hi Maica Bentivoglio!
He may resent her but he’s still with her. That’s the bottom line. Do you always want to be his second? Are you alright with him still being married but professing his love to you? He cannot fully commit to you while he’s still with her. It’s a lot of drama sweetheart and I’m concerned you’re going to end up hurt in the long run. If you feel he’s the one then you need to tell him to choose because you deserve to be more than the “side” chic.

I am leo… and in so much love with a man who’s Capricorn. It’s hard for him to let people enter in his life (as you know Capricorn’s) he did let me enter, he loves me so much. But then he realized that I am 10 years younger than him and he won’t be able to marry, and he started trying to run away, but he couldn’t … everytime he try but come back and try to keep friendship. One day his parents came and did all that emotional talks and he agreed to marry anyone. Now they called him home, surely fixed a girl, about whom he didn’t even ask a question. By saying I don’t care , I will marry just for their sake of Happiness. Now he has gone home, what you think any way we can be together or will he come back to me . After engagement or whatever. He’s 36 , I am 26
Honey why in the world would he not marry you because of the age? That’s not very typical of a Capricorn man. Love is love and age is a number. He’s marrying someone else just to please his family? His culture must be different than yours. I am very sorry to hear that. If he’s agreed to marry her then there isn’t much you can do about it. His culture clearly forces marriage. Unless he changes his mind and decides to go against his family then I wouldn’t expect him to change. I’m so sorry. You deserve better!
The capricorn man I am in love with is married. He and I were in a long distance relationship for several years and we were just going into college. After college I was ready for a family, he was still trying to find himself, I lost patience and I left and went back to my city and realized that I needed to begin a family. I found someone, married and divorced 14 years later. I have children and reconnected with the ex cappy but he’s now married but no children with the wife. We started seeing each and now he tells me he’s not going to make the same mistake as before and let me go. I love him, and he tells me he loves me every day but has not told me his intentions of leaving his wife. He told me he’s not happy with her at this time and he’s trying to keep stability for his teenage son who stays with them. He comes to see me regularly. We live six hours away but he comes to see me frequently about twice a month for days at a time. He takes me to see relatives who live near me. His mom always encourages me to come and visit whenever we talk on the phone. I want him in my life for sure this time but cannot be a second fiddle. How realistic is it for a capricorn man to leave his wife for his first love? He and I loved each other from 25 years ago and now that we’re back in each other’s lives, it’s as if we never lost touch. We have real feelings and deep conversations. We have a very special bond. He was just caught off guard because we had been on the phone for about 10 months doing phone and video calls but the moment we had the chance to physically be in each other’s presence, we haven’t been able to refrain even though he’s married. He told me we should take one day at a time. I told him I will ghost him very easily and he told me he wants me to be in his life forever this time and doesn’t want to ever lose me again. I tole him I don’t want to be a side chick and that is not me and deserve more. He understands my frustration with him but seems to not want to let me go whenever I start making comments about our situation. Should I give him a time frame? We have been together for two months now since we reconnected.
Wow what a difficult situation. I would say you’re going to have to trust your gut on this. You can give yourself a time frame in which you will give up and walk away. Write it down on the calendar and then when that date comes around, you will confront him and ask him if he’s ready to decide her or you. If he still drags his feet then you need to do what is right for you. It’s possible he’s waiting until his son is old enough but how long will that be? I think it’s an excuse honestly. That’s my take on it sweetheart. Two months isn’t a long time anyway. Are you willing to give it a bit more time and see what happens? Get your pen and make a date for yourself of how much longer you will wait before you demand answers and then walk away if he’s still not there. I wish you all the best in love and in life!
