Examining infidelity: What makes people cheat?

Infidelity Special Issue

From The Family Journal

Top celebrity news items this week include a kiss and tell story by a female escort revealing her affair with footballer Wayne Rooney and the announcement on behalf of Boyzone singer Ronan Keating and his wife of their permanent split, despite attempts to reconcile. Wayne and Ronan are just a couple of many celebrity men to have been caught out having an affair this year, and we are usually left asking why this happens to seemingly smitten couples. This special issue from The Family Journal is devoted to the topic of infidelity. It explores the motivation for cheating behavior for both genders, and its perception across different cultures and religions. This special issue examines the role of couples therapy and family counseling in the treatment and healing process for this act of betrayal.
