The Shrink & The Sage: Infidelity

"If a couple thinks that an affair has worked out to their advantage, it’s certainly not for a philosopher to disagree. But what bothers me is the reasoning that, so long as it all works out well, an affair is a good thing. That’s like arguing that life-threatening illnesses are good, because if you survive them, they can lead to a renewed appreciation of the value of life."
