Today, I spoke with three people that were struggling with love affairs.

How to get over one, how to get out of one, and how to leave an abusive relationship.

When I think of infidelity, I think of Esther Perel’s book, “The State of Affairs: Rethinking Infidelity” and it’s certainly helped me reframe how I think of infidelity.

Most couples that discover infidelity in their partnership decide to stick with their partner. Esther likes to ask, “Your first marriage is over. Would you like to create a second one together?”

I spoke with a woman who’s in love with two men.

At first I thought she wanted help with her open relationship, and then I realized that she’d be seeing both men for over a year without either of them knowing anything about the other.

Having an affair brings her a lot of pain. I could see if in her face and hear it in her voice. I’m not sure either of her relationships will last, but she’s determined to try.
