About the Author

  • Daily Dose of Medicine says:

    Low self-esteem can cause people to be very dependent on the attentions of others—and in some cases, the attention of just one person isn’t enough. It may also cause someone to feel insecure in their own relationship, so much so that they might cheat as a way of rejecting rather than being rejected.

  • Kaizen Approach says:

    i wouldn’t be able to trust someone after cheating. I’ve never forgiven and never looked back.

  • lynn.hazlewood lynn hazlewood says:

    A Married man who cheats “twice” will cheat again. Hope Im wrong.

  • michelle baker says:

    This subject has torn up alot of relationship and marriages. I’m going thru it now !!! #20yrs

  • MRS SUNSHINE says:

    Doesn’t matter how beautiful rich poor white black etc. Sad 😥

  • The Badboy Live says:

    I am a guy and I was raised with old-fashioned values that once you’re married you put everything you have into that marriage to make it everything it can be.. Unfortunately, my wife wasn’t the same. She was raised to be independent and essentially use men for anything you could get out of them. To not show them weakness or emotion, to essentially make them want and need for your affection. I am unfortunately, no not unfortunately… fortunately, The opposite. Where I will scream off the watch towers just to show that person how much I care. It’s one thing to be cheated on, but then to have it rubbed in your face by having that person they cheated with show up at the home that your husband and you bought together. It’s the ultimate in betrayal and truthfully, it’s been two years and I don’t know if my heart will ever heal from it. When you put 10 years of your life into a marriage only to find out the other person could care less whether or not they were married or not, You wonder if there’s anybody left in the world who has the same old-fashioned values as yourself.

    Here I am, in my mid-30s and not sure whether or not I will ever find someone else and if I do, if the horrible experience I’ve been through before would poison that relationship. I’ve always been a live and let live guy, but what happened to me was a huge kick in the groin. Something I did not deserve. The funny thing is, after putting so much of myself into that relationship for so long… The entire world and dating scene completely changed. People are ridiculously afraid to even meet anybody face-to-face. Reliant on our digital toys to find that someone.

    Well, I guess live and learn and hope that one day that right person comes along. Though, in the current climate of the world, I may be better off hoping to win $100 million lottery. LoL.

    • The Badboy Live says:

      Marylee Macpherson absolutely. Well thing is, part of it’s my fault because her friend warned me when I first met her. Though I thought she would grow up and unfortunately that did not happen. And I think the biggest issue is, like you… It has made me very sensitive to detect narcissistic people and it seems as the world goes on… I’m seeing it more and more in others. So, it’s tough to put any faith in anyone as even those I’ve met after the fact, seem either narcissistic or so cautious because they’ve been with one, that they are essentially terrified of letting anyone else in. I’m lightening up to the possibility of making a second go at first love… we will see. After the last relationship, I just want a happy go lucky girl with a hippy like mentality(not drug related, laid back and wants the best for the world) who can have fun doing whatever and isn’t afraid to enjoy life to its fullest and at the spur of the moment, head on a plane to anywhere and just enjoy the world around them. Hand in hand, taking it all in. Which means I’m probably out of luck, but one can dream. LoL.

      I appreciate your kind words. Not many people out there anymore who will take the time out of their day to make another feel better. Especially a total stranger, so thank you.

    • Nicole Ray says:

      You’re not alone there. Every relationship I’ve been in, I was cheated on. And they all thought they were so slick in hiding it but I’m not an idiot. There are definitely signs. It’s hard to trust again. 😣

  • ART95129 says:

    This is so inspiring! Thank you Dr. Oz for taking the time to put this under a microscope. Thank you Jana & Mike for stepping forward & showing people how this CAN (not necessarily “should” but can) be handled. This is therapeutic for those of us who are doing it alone without the help of a therapist. So long as both sides have a willing attitude toward reconciliation, it can happen!
    On another note, sex addiction is no joke. It takes the same kind of will power as that of one who struggles with diets.

  • Anna Rudder says:

    Excellent interview.

  • Emerald Eyes says:

    My ex-husband cheated online multiple times. We had a small child. He said he’d stop but alas…nope. I tried to forgive but three strikes and you’re out. I divorced him after 8 years of marriage. You really never know someone and what they’re capable of. Cheating is such a betrayal. I’ve had severe trust issues with men ever since and I’m not sure if that will ever change.

  • Kathy Wacker says:

    I think cheating is a choice I would never forgive anyone who would cheat on me…I don’t think it’s a addiction….it’s happened to me twice and I’ve divorce them..my trust is shattered

  • Kathy Wacker says:

    Why would you stay with a man is going to cheat on you multiple times..you deserve so much better guys do it for an ego boost it’s just my opinion

  • Dawn says:

    I’m truly wanting to know the difference between narcissistic personality disorder and “sex addiction”. It sounds too similar and yet when using the phrase sex addiction, it sounds like it’s an impulse that has organic origins in the brain and not having a moral compass in decision making. This is an honest question and I would love to know the difference.

  • Tina Villazana says:

    louisiana stop showing Dr oz 🙁

  • Bailey G says:

    This has _”not going to make it”_ written all over it.

  • Katherine M says:

    They’re only together for the money

  • Verbie Queen says:

    Connection has been broken, they are more like friends not husband and wife. Can forgive but never forget, I have that problem too. It’s hard decision, a loving father to our kids but a cheater husband to us. 😭

  • Amanda L Wayman says:

    Not buying the addiction and relapsing terminology. They are just an excuse for doing what he wanted to do, and what he could do, and then getting caught. If she can trust him after all that, she is either a saint or a lunatic.

  • The Wanderer says:

    I will tell you what happened …PORN ..leave that porn alone people

  • Alicia Flores says:

    Why tf would she not let him see his child????
