An affair has the potential to destroy a couple’s relationship, happiness, and even identity. Despite the fact that this is a very common human experience, it is little understood. Adultery, like the rule against it, has existed since marriage was founded, and it has a persistence that marriage can only envy.
So, how do we interpret this age-old taboo, which is absolutely outlawed but widely practised? Master therapist Esther Perel has traversed the world for the past ten years, helping hundreds of couples who have been broken by infidelity. Why do we cheat, she asks in The State of Affairs? What makes happy people cheat? Why is infidelity so painful? What exactly do we mean when we mention infidelity? Is having an affair inevitably the end of a relationship?
She claims that affairs can teach us a lot about relationships. They give us unique insight into our personal and societal perspectives on love, passion, and commitment. Betrayal is painful, but it can be overcome. An affair can even lead to a second marriage, albeit with the same individual. Couples may develop and learn from these traumatic situations, whether together or apart, suggests Perel, with the appropriate approach.
The State of Affairs is a brilliant book that offers a daring framework for comprehending the complexities of love and desire. As Perel puts it, “Infidelity is much messier than love. It is, however, a window into the fissures of the human heart unlike any other.”
