Paging Dr. NerdLove

Jun 1, 2017

It’s unpleasant to think about our partners cheating on us, but it’s a very real risk when it comes to committed relationships. Conservatively speaking, scientists estimate that infidelity occurs in around 25% of marriages and relationships at some point - men and women both. However, as easy as it is to simply demonize the cheater or make assumptions about the relationship, the reasons why people step out on their partners are more nuanced than many realize. By understanding why people cheat, you can watch for the factors that make cheating more likely and help strengthen your relationship against infidelity.

Show Highlights:

  • How the definitions - and expectations - of monogamy have changed over the years, and how this affects infidelity
  • How the Coolidge Effect influences us all... even if we don't cheat.
  • The single most common factor in all infidelities.
  • How to keep desire alive in a long-term relationship
  • Which personality types are most prone to infidelity.

...and so much more.
