Why Did He Cheat on Me?: The Truth Behind Why Men Stray by Rona B Subotnik

Millions of women ask themselves that very question every day. And then they ask themselves the bigger question: Why? Is it me? Is it him? Is it That Woman? Or have we just grown apart?

In Why Did He Cheat on Me?, bestselling author and marriage counselor Rona Subotnik, LMFT, helps you understand what drives men to be unfaithful-and explains how to cope with the complicated feelings that follow. From the first telltale sign to rebuilding trust, she takes you through a progression of quizzes and exercises to help you through the painful process of dealing with a spouse who's cheated, including:

The fallout from infidelity

Life transitions that can prompt affairs

Unspoken wants and needs that affect your relationship

The art of forgiveness

It may seem impossible to pick up the pieces after your trust has been broken, but this book shows you how to move on with your life. Whether you decide to stay with your husband or not, you'll enjoy better, healthier, happier relationships-with or without him.
