Why Happy Couples Cheat (Video)

One central, seemingly inexplicable relationship question is “Why do we cheat?” And more importantly, why do happy couples cheat?

In this Ted Talk, relationship therapist Esther Perel examines why people cheat, and unpacks why affairs are so traumatic: because they threaten our emotional security. In infidelity, she sees something unexpected — 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.

    People cheat because they have issues with themselves. Insecurity, low self esteem, revenge of some sort,,,,it has nothing to do with the one who was cheated on at all! Cheating is a choice. We all have choice.
