The Allure of Infidelity: Understanding Why Most of Us Cheat and What We Seek from Our Affairs
When it comes to the discussion of infidelity, we have a habit of rushing to conclude who’s the victim and who’s the perpetrator. We’re quick to shame the one who’s strayed and pity the one who was last betrayed. Where does this lead? To the all too familiar and over-played blame-game. The game of ego-driven judgement, division and ultimately no understanding of the one ideal that’s most highly regarded by marriage and yet is the most commonly broken – monogamy.
Finally, a book that acknowledges both sides of the infidelity equation – the partner who’s obviously betrayed and the partner who’s been emotionally abandoned and neglected for months, and sometimes years before they comma their own act of deception. This book does not aim to pin the blame or label anyone as good nor bad. Rather it is here to open our eyes to the many signals and signs that a relationship is suffering months before infidelity even appears as an option to one or both parties. This book reminds us that not only is no one immune to the allure of infidelity, but more importantly that it always takes two to tango.
If you are struggling with feelings of dissatisfaction in your relationship, or you fear that perhaps your significant other maybe contemplating looking elsewhere for gratification, this book will serve as both your guide for open, courageous and solution-oriented communication, as well as, the objective friend who can help you learn the art of introspection – to look within yourself for an understanding of what you need, want and desire from your romantic relationship. It will give both parties of your relationship the opportunity to understand and fulfil the needs of the other before infidelity appears as the last plausible solution.
