There is no good side of the fence when it comes to infidelity- whether you are the betrayed or the betrayer argues author Wendy Plump. She shares her intimate history of a broken marriage and the affairs on both sides that brought about its collapse with deep insight and compassion. How ever this hot prevalent issue of affairs has touched your life, you don’t want to miss this provocative conversation about what Vows mean and what they have to teach us.
Wendy Plump is the author of Vow: A Memoir of Marriage (And Other Affairs), published in February 2013. After the discovery of her husband’s affair and second family, and several affairs of her own earlier in the marriage, Wendy wrote Vow as a way to wrap a thoughtful narrative around the issues of infidelity, love and the challenges of long-term marriage. She has been a reporter and magazine writer for 25 years. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer and New Jersey Monthly. She reports regularly for The Times of Trenton, and lives in New Hope, Pennsylvania.

There is no time like long summer nights to cultivate our uniquely, profoundly human capacity for pleasure, especially sexual pleasure. Our pleasure response transforms our relationship to each other and even to life itself. Focusing on pleasure not only changes how we see our opportunities for intimate connection, but also invites us into a deeper relationship with our erotic soul.

It becomes hard to trust your own thinking when nothing seems to be working. The space between how I thought it would go and how it is going seems to widen in front of my eyes. Maybe most difficult of all is how often the undesirable outcomes around us spill over into our relationships, both at home and at work. An errant comment too easily turns into an argument. I become blind to my impact on people around me, caught up in the unresolved problems surrounding me. During times like these, we often underestimate the power of the choices we make and how it can create a path back towards what’s working or down the slippery slope of self-destruction, which my husband affectionately calls “flirting with the gutter.”
Here is my short list to making it better when it isn’t working at all. Each one helps you do the next one, so start at the beginning and work your way down.
