A French psychologist says your husband’s infidelity is actually good for your marriage.
Maryse Vaillant claims French men should stop being castigated for being serial womanisers and that keeping a mistress can actually improve their marriage.
In a controversial new book on the effects of infidelity on married life, Men, Love, Fidelity, Miss Vaillant says her aim is to “re-habilitate infidelity”.
According to figures cited in the book, an estimated 39 per cent of French men cheat on their wives at some stage in their life.
“[Most] don’t do it because they no longer love them, on the contrary,” she said. “They simply need breathing space. For such men, who are in fact profoundly monogamous, infidelity is almost unavoidable”.
Well, then, if they can’t stop themselves from cheating, they’re not exactly monogamous, are they?by
