Do Happy Couples Cheat?
Show Notes

In this episode, Amanda and I discuss the controversial claim made by Belgian-American psychotherapist Esther Perel in her popular TedTalk: Even happy couples cheat.

First, we cover the reasons Esther uncovered that lead to cheating, the risks of disconnection, and the rewards of connection.

Next, we bring in the research of relationship experts John Gottman
and Sue Johnson to help listeners understand how couples can avoid relational trauma. This is one you’ll want to share with friends and family!
