Rethinking Infidelity

Rethinking Infidelity

Why do people cheat and why are affairs so traumatic?

Infidelity is the ultimate betrayal. But does it have to be? Relationship therapist, Esther Perel, examines why people cheat, and unpacks the reason affairs are so traumatic in this intriguing Ted Talk.

She has both an insightful and provocative view on infidelity. When we are betrayed by an affair, our emotional security is threatened, and Esther Perel sees something unexpected in the pain of an affair— an expression of longing and loss.

This is a must-watch for anyone who has ever cheated or been cheated on, or who simply wants a new framework for understanding relationships.
