When someone loves another, do they cheat on them? The answer will surprise you

  The couple entered our counseling room. The husband had a look of shame, failure and defeat on his face. He even had difficulty lifting up his head. His shoulders slumped; he sat in front of us as his wife sat beside him. She had obviously cried a great deal the last couple of days. [...]
