One person wrote, "She points out everything I ever did wrong. When I ask how my flaws compare to her sleeping with another man, she curses me and walks away."

Another wrote, "He lives with his lover though we're still marriedHe rarely pays child support because he says he has no money. Today they're in Europe vacationing on the money he 'doesn't have' while his children go without."

This one wrote, "He brings the other woman with him to our son's games. She flouts it in front of me, my children, and everyone there by kissing and hugging on him with me sitting in the stands just feet away."

Nearly all of them say, "What happened to the person I married? S/he was loving, kind, and we enjoyed life together. I don't know this person that s/he has become."

It's called limerence. We talk about it a lot. In this program I bring together the many things I've taught about limerence into a concise package, including what you should understand and what you should do if your spouse is in love with someone else.

I'll answer these questions, as well as the questions you call in during the program.

How does limerence start? How long does it last? How does it end? Will the straying spouse ever come back? How much power does the affair partner have over my spouse? What should I not do? What should I do? Is there hope? How do I know when finally to give in and stop the nonsense by ending the marriage?
