120: Esther Perel Talks Infidelity and Modern Relationships

Infidelity is something that can affect both unhappy, and seemingly happy relationships. That’s right, research has shown a significant number of partners are cheating while in a happy relationship. Esther Perel breaks down how to deal with infidelity and a range of other relationship topics that we know you’ll enjoy. Esther is recognized as one of today’s most insightful and original voices on modern relationships, and we couldn’t have been happier to have her on the show to share her extensive knowledge.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How the rulebooks for marriages and relationships are being reinvented.
  • Why people cheat in a happy relationship.
  • How to avoid the trap of becoming a narrow version of yourself while in a relationship.
  • What to do when there has been cheating in your relationship.
  • Talking about non-monogamy with your partner, and why it’s important even if you don’t want to explore an open relationship.
  • How to cultivate the healthiest relationship possible.
  • And much more!
