Welcome to the second post in the How to Affair-proof Your Marriage series.
The first post on marital infidelity highlighted the five danger zones that can make a marriage/relationship vulnerable to an affair. The indiscretions of high-profile figures (David Letterman, John Edwards, and most recently, Arnold Schwarzenegger) raise awareness of the vulnerability that all couples face when it comes to long-term commitment and monogamy.
It is not only the rich and famous who are susceptible to having an affair. In my marriage/couples counseling practice, I see many couples who are dealing with the fallout of infidelity (both emotional affairs and sexual affairs): These couples aren’t unique– in many ways their struggles are similar to the struggles all couples face.
Today’s theme focuses on why men are more likely to be unfaithful than women. Understanding these dynamics can lead couples to work together on building an affair-proof marriage/relationship. Click Why Men Cheat to discover five reasons that men have affairs.
