Overview

Why are men unfaithful? Do they stray because of sexual dissatisfaction in their marriage or is cheating a sign of a deeper problem? What are the chances that your husband will cheat? Is there anything that can be done to ensure that your husband will stay faithful?

While several books have explored the feelings and experiences of women whose husbands have been unfaithful, they have generally ignored the questions of why men cheat and what a wife can do to prevent her marriage from being destroyed by infidelity. In The Truth about Cheating, the renowned family counselor M. Gary Neuman presents fascinating and provocative answers to these vital questions.

As Neuman reveals the surprising results of his extensive research with cheating husbands and faithful husbands, he challenges the conventional wisdom and offers keen insights into the real motivations of straying husbands. Among the biggest surprises Neuman discovered during his research is that sexual dissatisfaction plays a relatively minor role in the decision to cheat. Filled with dramatic and enlightening stories based on Neuman's extensive interviews with his subjects, The Truth about Cheating takes you straight to the emotional core of male infidelity.

Once you begin to understand the often unexpressed but deeply felt emotional needs that most men have in common, Neuman takes you to the next step what to do to prevent cheating. He provides concise focus points, action steps, and exercises that will help you reduce the chances of infidelity in your marriage and create a more meaningful and intimate relationship with your husband.

You'll also find out how to tell whether your husband is cheating: how to listen for the warning bells, pick up on cheating signals, and read the signs that tell you when he's lying. You'll discover the strongest defense against cheating connecting with your husband emotionally in ways that are meaningful to him, and learn to encourage him to do the same for you.

If you believe that your husband may be unfaithful, you're not being paranoid and it's not your fault. But you can prevent him from straying if he hasn't already done so and put a stop to it if he has. Read The Truth about Cheating and start making your marriage stronger today.
