Overview

A provocative look at the lives of 26 married suburban women, offering a fascinating and nuanced portrait of marriage and infidelity.

Extramarital affairs are often whispered about behind closed doors. In this groundbreaking book, the doors open. Stephanie Gertler and Adrienne Lopez take an intimate and sensitive look at the lives of 26 married or previously married women who have either had an affair, are having an affair, or are wrestling with their conflicting emotions and loyalties as they consider the possibility of being unfaithful to their husbands.

The women are between the ages of 35 and 70. They hail from various cultures, races, professions, and economic levels. Most have children. Many crave passion, intimacy, conversation, romance. And when those things aren't forthcoming in their marriages, they seek them elsewhere. To Love, Honor, and Betray never judges: It provides candid conversations, rendering women's lives in ways that are surprising and moving, while offering remarkable insight into the complexity of long-term relationships. It's the book that women have been waiting for.

    Read this book!

    This book is a rare find. It's like listening to strangers talk about their affairs when they think no one is listening. Having said that, I will say that this book isn't fluff and it's not for people who easily talk offense to things of this nature. It's a good read that helps others feel better about thier own feelings--whether they act on them or not.

    Loved it!

    Oh man.... I loved this book. It was such an easy read. I didn't want it to end. I saw myself in just about every one of these woman.... very eye-opening and I felt like I was spying on these women's lives! Enjoy!

    Real Life Desperate Housewives

    This book is about woman who are cheating, woman who have cheated, and woman who are thinking about cheating on their spouses. This latter group is the saddest, and perhaps, most fascinating of all 26 women profiled. Few cheat with men like their husbands (many professionals) but with the pool man, the electrician and the most available men (or women) around. Everybody's looking for love...This is a fascinating and often sad portrayal of real women, married and still looking for it...
