The Infidelity Episodes: Esther Perel

Download Audio

The Sugars exploration of infidelity culminates in Part 3, a conversation with Esther Perel. The relationship therapist is focusing her attention on the subject of infidelity - what it is, why we do it, and what it means to us. They also take a question from a married man who longs for lost intimacy with his wife, while also engaging in multiple affairs on the side.

In Part 1, the Sugars took on the Betrayed, and in Part 2, the Betrayers.
