Unrated Critic Reviews for When Good People Have Affairs


“If your partner would feel hurt and betrayed by what happened, then it’s infidelity.” Do not mistake this book for a book that advocates having an affair, but a book that acknowledges that affairs happen sometimes to good people and they may need assistance with resolution afterwards.
