'I Feel Alive': Why People Are Unfaithful

by Business Insider 1:46 mins

Esther Perel, a couples therapist and the international best selling author of "Mating in Captivity," reveals her insights on the subject of infidelity. Aiming to spark a new conversation about this taboo topic, Perel reverses the lens by proposing that affairs are not a symptom of a problem in one's relationship, but are instead an expression of a deeper longing to experience something different. "The one thing I can say is that unfaithful partners all over the world tell me.... 'I feel alive.'" Adds Perel, "We don't so much want to leave the person that we are with as much as we want to leave the person that we have ourselves become."
