Heartbreak

Cheating: historically condemned, universally practiced.

Men cheat. Women cheat. Marriage is complicated and the issue is not simply black and white. In fact, there are two sets of needs that need to be addressed when infidelity occurs in your marriage. 

YourTango relationship experts Esther Perel, Matthew Walter, Cynthia Chestnut, Lesli Doares and Elisabeth LaMotte discuss the different reasons your spouse cheated on you. Whether it was because they were missing something and seeked out new adventures or if new adventures ignited new needs, infidelity is a case of broken trust and lost communication.
