Insights on Infidelity from Hillary
By Ruth Houston
There are nuggets of information on
surviving infidelity scattered throughout Hillary Clinton's account of the
Clinton-Lewinsky affair in her book "Living History."
Of the various topics discussed in Hillary Clinton's "Living
History", the topic that has gained the most attention is the
Clinton-Lewinsky affair. Since infidelity now affects 80% of all
marriages, it's easy to understand why. The Clinton-Lewinsky affair
continues to be a major point of interest because infidelity has reached
epidemic proportions. Women with cheating husbands identify with Mrs.
Clinton and feel they can learn from her experience."
As author of an infidelity book and
former infidelity victim myself, I can attest to the fact that women
struggling with issues of infidelity are eager for information that will
shed light on how to cope with an extramarital affair.
There are nuggets of information on surviving infidelity scattered
throughout Hillary Clinton's account of the Clinton-Lewinsky affair. I
found at least a dozen insights on infidelity that would be of interest to
women whose husbands are having an affair - insights such as:
o Infidelity doesn't necessarily have to mean the end of the marriage.
o A cheating husband must come clean and own up to his infidelity before
the healing process can begin.
o Together, the couple must address the underlying issues that may have
contributed to the affair.
o Both parties must be equally committed to rebuilding the marriage.
o Counseling can help the couple come to terms with the affair.
o The healing process takes time and both parties must be patient.
Living History" is a
surprisingly rich source of information on surviving an affair. Women will
find in Hillary Clinton a role model for wives facing similar marital
problems. Her candid account of the Clinton-Lewinsky affair answers many
of the questions in the public mind, such as : Why didn't Mrs. Clinton
leave her husband? What made her decide to stay with him and keep their
marriage intact? How did she cope with the emotional trauma? What helped
her overcome the pain of betrayal?
provides an intensely intimate look at one woman's reaction to her
husband's affair. By examining the factors that contributed to the
survival of the Clinton marriage, perhaps other marriages can be saved.
"Living History" is worthwhile reading for any woman whose
husband is engaged in an extramarital affair.
