Having an affair is usually a symptom of an underlying problem in your life and in your relationship.
Thanks to smartphones and the Internet, your love "fix" is never far away.
In truth, most infidelity occurs not because it is planned, but because people find themselves in situations where their emotions completely overwhelm (and even surprise) them.
While people trapped in troubled marriages are more vulnerable to infidelity, I've discovered that a surprising number of people in seemingly solid relationships also respond to the novelty of new love and end up getting swept away by an affair.
My husband has an obsession with sex, perhaps an addiction even. He can never have enough sex and the sex we have never meets his unreasonably high standards.
He gets bored so easily that trying to satisfy him feels like mission impossible.
You may argue you're just Facebook friends, or you're just innocently flirting and it means nothing.
