What the latest science tells us about the brain´s reward systems, love, and sex - and how to prevent an affair from destroying your life How can I prevent an affair from destroying my life? Whether I am the cheater or the betrayed partner, how can I survive, even thrive, in the wake of an affair? Infidelity provides key insights to find your true sexual and romantic potential and advocates honesty, trust, and integrity - the fundamentals of love. People often cheat in a haze of delusion, believing that it will bring them real love, help them have better sex, lift their spirits, and boost their sagging self-esteem; however, very often, cheating wrecks relationships and erodes self-esteem. In Infidelity, one of America´s top doctors combines neuroscience, addiction theory, and common sense to explain the three types of cheating: emotional, virtual, and physical; why they´re so prevalent; and how to live in accordance with our values when we are drawn to stray. Examining what the latest science tells us about the brain´s reward systems, love, and sex, Dr. Kenneth Paul Rosenberg reveals what drives men and women to cheat and what they can do about it. At a time when America´s pornography obsession rises to the level of a competing sexual interest, when is porn a problem, and when does it count as infidelity? And since it is not the act of infidelity alone that destroys a couple, how does any couple prevent growing apart? Through concrete rules addressing these and other vital questions, Dr. Rosenberg guides couples on how to prevent cheating, stop it from progressing, and repair the damage caused by an affair.

Attention: All people who suspect their partners are cheating on them! One of the most common causes of a failed marriage is infidelity. Your friends might have told you stories about them catching their partners with somebody else. You cringe at the idea of that happening to you. But how can you be sure it won´t? Cheat-proof your marriage today! Spending the rest of your life with somebody you truly love is a major goal for most people. But the rising number of divorce cases each year only proves that the bond a marriage provides may not really be as strong as it should be. Actually, records show that many marriages were dissolved because of the disloyalty of a party. Marriage is a commitment. As a person enters into it, he or she has a new set of responsibility to undertake. Part of that responsibility is to remain true and loyal to their partner. In a relationship, cheating is a major no-no. Most of the time, both parties assure one other that they would never cheat on each other. But does it really happen? Not necessarily. If you found out your partner is having an affair, how would you handle such betrayal? Are you willing to forgive and start anew after he/she has confessed of having an affair with another person? Or are you going to ask him/her to stay away from your life? Forgiving a cheating partner requires tremendous amount of understanding and forgiveness because it´s very difficult to gain back lost trust. On the other hand, leaving a cheating partner needs strength and will power. Research shows that cheating is prevalent in relationships, married or not. Do you want to know the signs that your partner is cheating on you? Do you want to learn the ways on how to maintain your marriage cheat-free as it is? Then let us show you how! 1. Language: English.

Your relationship seemed to be one that you had always strived for. The two of you seemed perfect together, and you were building a future together. Suddenly you are faced with your partner´s adulterous affair and his infidelity. You start to doubt your own self-worth, and your self-esteem starts to slide into the gutter. You feel absolutely miserable. You mull things over, and you realize that your partner wants you to take him back. He wants to make amends. After all, he says, he still loves you. And he does. You wonder why he cheated if he loves you so much. Wouldn´t our men stop straying if we were the only women they were meant to be with? Your man is just as confused as you as to why he is cheating. I am here to tell you that there is a reason your man cheated. It has a lot less to do with how you were treating him and a lot more to do with other things that were in his life a long time before you came along. It has to do with his upbringing and his caregivers, but not in the way that you think it does. In this audiobook, I am going to cover the real reason that your man cheated and show you that (if he says he still loves you) this is the ultimate truth that you must deal with when determining whether to walk away from the relationship or to give him another chance. There is a chance that he´ll cheat again because of the reason that he cheated the first time. There is a chance that he´ll likely always be a cheater, even if he runs off and meets another girl that he is enamored with. There is also a chance that he can change for good and stop cheating, and that is the goal of this audiobook. 1. Language: English. Narrator: D Gaunt.

Iconic couples´ therapist and bestselling author of Mating in Captivity Esther Perel returns to paperback with a provocative look at relationships through the lens of infidelity. An affair: it can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. And yet, this extremely common human experience is so poorly understood. What are we to make of this time-honored taboo-universally forbidden yet universally practiced? Why do people cheat-even those in happy marriages? Why does an affair hurt so much? When we say infidelity, what exactly do we mean? Do our romantic expectations of marriage set us up for betrayal? Is there such a thing as an affair-proof marriage? Is it possible to love more than one person at once? Can an affair ever help a marriage? Perel weaves real-life case stories with incisive psychological and cultural analysis in this fast-paced and compelling book. For the past ten years, Perel has traveled the globe and worked with hundreds of couples who have grappled with infidelity. Betrayal hurts, she writes, but it can be healed. An affair can even be the doorway to a new marriage-with the same person. With the right approach, couples can grow and learn from these tumultuous experiences, together or apart. Affairs, she argues, have a lot to teach us about modern relationships-what we expect, what we think we want, and what we feel entitled to. They offer a unique window into our personal and cultural attitudes about love, lust, and commitment. Through examining illicit love from multiple angles, Perel invites readers into an honest, enlightened, and entertaining exploration of modern marriage in its many variations. Fiercely intelligent, The State of Affairs provides a daring framework for understanding the intricacies of love and desire. As Perel observes, ´´Love is messy; infidelity more so. But it is also a window, like no other, into the crevices of the human heart.´´
