Why People Have Affairs
Why So Many Women Cheat on Their Husbands
There are as many rationalizations for cheating as there are cheaters. Some people feel trapped in a sexually unsatisfying relationship due to children or financial pressures. Others are just addicted to the thrill of sex with a new partner. Cheating may not conform to modern social expectations of marriage, but the natural urge to stray does speak to the carnal beast in us all that is impulsive, instinctual and insatiable.

More women than ever are cheating , she tells us, or are willing to admit that they are cheating — and while Perel spends much of her book examining the psychological meaning, motivation, and impact of these affairs, she offers little insight into the significance of the rise itself. So what exactly is happening inside marriages to shift the numbers? What has changed about monogamy or family life in the past 27 years to account for the closing gap?

These questions first occurred to me a few years ago when I began to wonder how many of my friends were actually faithful to their husbands.
