What the latest science tells us about the brain's reward systems, love, and sex - and how to prevent an affair from destroying your life How can I prevent an affair from destroying my life? Whether I am the cheater or the betrayed partner, how can I survive, even thrive, in the wake of an affair? Infidelity provides key insights to find your true sexual and romantic potential and advocates honesty, trust, and integrity - the fundamentals of love. People often cheat in a haze of delusion, believing that it will bring them real love, help them have better sex, lift their spirits, and boost their sagging self-esteem; however, very often, cheating wrecks relationships and erodes self-esteem. In Infidelity, one of America's top doctors combines neuroscience, addiction theory, and common sense to explain the three types of cheating: emotional, virtual, and physical; why they're so prevalent; and how to live in accordance with our values when we are drawn to stray. Examining what the latest science tells us about the brain's reward systems, love, and sex, Dr. Kenneth Paul Rosenberg reveals what drives men and women to cheat and what they can do about it. At a time when America's pornography obsession rises to the level of a competing sexual interest, when is porn a problem, and when does it count as infidelity? And since it is not the act of infidelity alone that destroys a couple, how does any couple prevent growing apart? Through concrete rules addressing these and other vital questions, Dr. Rosenberg guides couples on how to prevent cheating, stop it from progressing, and repair the damage caused by an affair.

Cheating is an ugly yet real part of the dating world. Once the initial shock of discovering your sweetheart is a cheat sinks in, you'll likely ask the big question - why? Reasoning away the infidelity is a kind of coping mechanism that helps our bruised egos deal with the rejection we often experience in these circumstances. While there's always a few original excuses, most of them have withstood the test of time. Many people, including Hollywood starlets like Elizabeth Taylor and professional sports figures like Tiger Woods, have had to cough up answers for cheating. Sarah Crawford focuses on some of the reasons why men cheat in her book: Things like: She doesn't understand me. Well, I think everyone understands you now! You felt physically attracted to her but you were not mature enough to be emotionally attached. My partner cheated first. This leads to an endless cycle of cheating and drama, until someone gets hurt, sick or gives up. We've grown apart. Meaning, we haven't spent much time together recently so I decided to cheat. She's a sexual prude. He's just so predictable. Interpreted, this means, "I have some sexual requests that are so strange that I'm afraid to ask my regular partner to perform them." I like variety. This generic excuse is really a non-excuse. "I like variety," is interchangeable with "I'm a dog." This is something every partner should look out for and this book will help both men and women. 1.

Iconic couples' therapist and best-selling 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 our 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 are we to make of this time-honored taboo, universally forbidden yet universally practiced? For the past 10 years, master therapist Esther Perel has traveled the globe and worked with hundreds of couples who have been shattered by infidelity. In The State of Affairs she asks, why do we cheat? And why do happy people cheat? Why does infidelity hurt so much? And when we say infidelity, what exactly do we mean? Is an affair always the end of a marriage? Affairs, she writes, have a lot to teach us about relationships. They provide unusual insight into our personal and cultural attitudes about love, lust, and commitment. Betrayal hurts, but it can be healed. An affair can even be the doorway to a new marriage - with the same person. With the right approach, Perel argues, couples can grow and learn from these tumultuous experiences, together or apart. Fiercely intelligent, The State of Affairs provides a daring framework for understanding the intricacies of love and desire. As Perel writes, "Love is messy; infidelity more so. But it is also a window, like no other, into the crevices of the human heart." After listening to Esther read The State of Affairs, continue on as she opens the door to her office and invites you to listen in on actual couple sessions. These are unscripted conversations of real, anonymous couples grappling with infidelity fr 1. Language: English. Narrator: Esther Perel.
