Vow: A Memoir of Marriage (And Other Affairs)

Listen

GUEST:  WENDY PLUMP

WENDY PLUMP found out from a friend that her husband was cheating on her.  What made it even worse was that he had a child with his mistress and this second family lived a few miles down the road.  But perhaps this news shouldn’t have come as such a surprise.  There had been a number of infidelities in the 18-year marriage by both Plump and her husband.  Plump writes bluntly about her affairs and her husband’s in her book, “Vow: A Memoir of Marriage (and Other Affairs).”  Marty sits down with Plump to talk about commitment and betrayal and its effect on a relationship.
