Rethinking Infidelity - A Talk for Anyone Who has Ever Loved
Infidelity is seen as the ultimate betrayal, a deal breaker, that leaves us heartbroken, lost, and spiteful. And yet most of us at minimum have fantasized about an outside relationship and many of us have acted upon it (somewhere between 25-75%). In this Ted Talk, Esther Perel unpacks why people cheat, describes its impact, and explores a new framework of posttraumatic growth and intimacy for couples that have experienced infidelity. This video is important for anyone who has ever been cheated on, cheated, thought about cheating, or is open to a new way of understanding relationships.
