Motivations for straying range from the emotional to the sexual. And hooking up with a “hottie” or “soulmate” nowadays can be just a computer keystroke away.¬†Guest host Jennifer Lynn discusses issues of trust, honesty, and forgiveness after an affair has taken place. Her guest is¬†Janis Spring, Ph.D.

Spring is the author¬†“After the Affair: Healing the Pain and Rebuilding Trust When a Partner Has Been Unfaithful”which comes out next month as a completely updated second edition, with advice on affairs in cyberspace.
