If you have ever been cheated on, you know that it sucks, a lot. You spend the nights wondering what went wrong and question if you will ever date again.
The truth of the matter is that it probably wasn’t your fault, no really.
“There’s a culture of lying, cheating and dishonesty, and it seems okay to tell white lies and not tell [your] partner the whole story” says Deb McLachlin.
McLachlin runs her own personal psychotherapy practice here in London. She says that relationships have changed over the years and that most current partnerships have less communication, which is a key factor to keep things working.
“If people don’t have emotional intimacy, they call it a roommate situation, and they walk out” Says Mclachlin
She adds that partners have many options instead of adultery. They can end the relationship, or even try something drastic like swinging.
Last week, it was revealed that about 1 out of 5 people in the city of Ottawa are registered on Ashley Madison’s website, which is known for connecting people who want to cheat on their partners.
