State of Affairs: Rethinking Infidelity
An affair: it can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. And yet, this extremely common human experience is so poorly understood. What are we to make of this time-honored taboo—universally forbidden yet universally practiced? Why do people cheat—even those in happy marriages? Why does an affair hurt so much? When we say infidelity, what exactly do we mean? Do romantic expectations of marriage set us up for betrayal? Is there such a thing as an affair-proof marriage? Is it possible to love more than one person at once? Can an affair ever help a marriage? Perel weaves real-life case stories with incisive psychological and cultural analysis in this fast-paced and compelling book.

The best part of shopping online is that you get to be in your cozy bed, dreaming of lingerie, picking out your absolute favorite pieces, and then having them arrive at your door wrapped in a beautiful box. You'll be able to track your order's journey before it arrives.

Since COVID-19 hit New York in March 2020 and spread across the country, there have been severe delays on many packages due to shipping carriers working with a shortage of staff and an influx of online shopping. Please order early to avoid any delays. Unfortunately, it is completely beyond our control if a package arrives well after the estimated time on our website. We do our best to make sure our team and our wonderful designer partners ship within the quoted processing time. Your patience is very much appreciated during this unprecedented time.
