What makes my day as editor of an Internet startup? When CNN quotes a D360 expert for a follow-up on the Edwards affair.
Men and women both have affairs, but not necessarily for the same reasons, says Mark Goulston, M.D., a marriage expert at Divorce360.com and author of "The Six Secrets of a Lasting Relationship: How to Fall in Love Again -- and Stay There." While men often break their marriage vows for reasons that include ego, a need for adulation and sometimes narcissistic behavior, he says, women tend to be tempted for different reasons.
"Women more often fall in love [with someone else] to feel adored and with a promise of protection and to ease pain," Goulston explains.
