The first reviewer said it all. It's all about character.(Or lack of it). Rationalizations & Justifications Abound, but a cheater is in the same vein as a Liar and a Theif. Untrustworthy! If a person is unhappily married, they have an obligation to either fix their marriage or end it...but cheating is only hurtful and dishonest.Was this review helpful?

I absolutely do not agree with previous reviews on this book. All affairs are wrong! As the betrayed spouse, I can personally state from experience that anyone that has an affair is a coward. If you are unhappy in your marriage, you either deal with the problems or get out, but you do not involve another person. Infidelity happens in as many happy marriages as it does unhappy marriages and it occurs not because of an unhappy marriage but because of bad choices and lack of integrity and character of the wayward spouse. Affairs are not about 'Love', but about 'Lust' and the book is incorrectly titled.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Yes, some extra-marital affairs are about true love. This book looks at infidelity from a completely different perspective. The first book that doesn't 'condemn' all affairs as morally wrong. An acknowledgement that infidelity is not the cause of marital problems, but the result of a marriage already in jeopardy. Absolutely fascinating approach to understanding human nature. Finally, someone who doesn't condemn the 'other woman' (or man).Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
