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. 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.

Great listen and would recommend.
The author does a fantastic job questioning feels and real time situations from her unbiased clinical perspective. Not specific to the cheaters or cheated themselves, but the author expands beyond and makes you self reflect on the harsh social stimga associated with everyone involved.
