Why do we cheat? In the eye-opening book, Infidelity: Why Men and Women Cheat, Dr. Kenneth Rosenberg explores the world of cheating, from what causes spouses to stray, and more importantly, how to recover from an affair. The book also covers topics such as porn (and if it qualifies as cheating), to the emotional affair, which can be just as psychologically painful as a physical affair.
Some of Dr. Rosenberg’s patients’ stories are included in Infidelity as a way to expand upon a theme. The book delves deep into the roles that biology, psychology, and cultural norms can all play when it comes to infidelity and its repercussions.
Perhaps the most critical section in Infidelity is the third part, which focuses on the aftermath of an affair. Case studies are presented and show how couples can move on from an affair. Tips and advice are also given as to how to handle the discovery of infidelity, and the steps necessary for partners to process what has happened and ultimately grow stronger, both individually and as a couple.
Infidelity is a must-read for those who have found themselves dealing with an affair and offers concrete ways to celebrate the love in our lives in an honest and respectful manner.
