Coping With Infidelity In The Wake Of The Ashley Madison Hack

This week, I participated in a segment on the WHYY and NPR program Radio Times in order to discuss the fallout of the Ashley Madison hacking scandal. Joined by Philadelphia therapist Edward Monte, we discussed not only how common infidelity is, but also the motivations behind cheating, what happens to marriages when affairs are discovered, and what you can do to reduce the likelihood of cheating occurring in your own relationship. You can listen to the full show below, but our segment begins at 13:28.
