    Chronic infidelity is no “mistake” or just “bad behavior.” It’s a pattern of behavior that is emotional abuse and put the health and life of the unsuspecting partner at risk. Too many therapists push people to forgive on the premise that it’s good for them. Well maybe not.

        HOW ABOUT THE ISSUE IN AL ISLAM, WHERE A MAN CAN MARRY UP TO FOUR WOMEN AS LONG AS HE CAN AFFORD THEM. I LIVE IN A MUSLIM COUNTRY, AND KNOW WOMEN WHOSE HUSBANDS HAVE OTHER WIVES WITH SCORES OF CHILDREN. THESE WIVES ARE NOT HAPPY DEALING WITH JEALOUSY AND ECONOMIC ISSUES AS A WAY OF LIFE.

        HOW DOES YOUR SOLUTION APPLY TO NON- WESTERN THINKING?

        Thanks for your thoughts. Certainly the “feelings” of women involved in these situations would apply. Regarding cultural and religious dynamics regarding the arrangements you mention, I cannot give a quick response and may not even be qualified to do so. I certainly understand where you are coming from and wish you well.
