Abstract:

Iconic couples' therapist and bestselling author of 'Mating in Captivity', Esther Perel returns with a groundbreaking and provocative look at infidelity, arguing for a more nuanced and less judgmental conversation about transgressions. An affair: it can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. And yet this extremely common human experience is so poorly understood. Adultery has existed since marriage was invented, and so too the prohibition against it - in fact, it has a tenacity that marriage can only envy. So what can be made of this time-honored taboo, universally forbidden yet universally practiced? For the past ten years, master therapist Esther Perel has traveled the globe and worked with hundreds of couples who have been shattered by infidelity. She asks, why do people cheat? And why do happy people cheat? Why does infidelity hurt so much? Is an affair always the end of a marriage? Affairs, she writes, have a lot to teach about relationships.
