We tackle two questions submitted by listeners about infidelity in marriage. One question comes from a man whose wife had a series of affairs, and the other question from a woman whose husband was deceptive about his involvement with another woman. Both questions address the issue of trust and trustworthiness : How it is created or ascertained, and how we sometimes collude in not knowing things about our spouse we are not sure we can handle. Dr. Finlayson-Fife also makes a distinction between forgiving a spouse vs. reconciling with a spouse, and how to participate in creating a more trustworthy marriage.
