August 20, 2012 — Infidelity has become increasingly common in today’s marriages. In the U.S., it’s thought that roughly 1 in every 2.7 couples is touched by it. 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.
