Library JournalThis much-needed book by two licensed clinical psychologists empathetically guides readers through a partner's infidelity. Using case studies and sound psychological concepts, Solomon and Teagno detail the reasons why long-term love relationships (LTLR) succeed or fail, what causes infidelity, and how to build a true LTLR, should that be in everyone's best interest. The authors describe the three intimacies necessary in an LTLR—self-intimacy, conflict intimacy, and affection intimacy—as well as the three emotions that cause infidelity—fear, loneliness, and anger. Appendixes contain exercises to facilitate emotional self-awareness and communication. Invaluable to those suffering from betrayal and wondering where to turn; highly recommended for all public libraries.
