Content: Last year, Elisa, a 38-year-old woman, broke up with her fiancé, George. She had discovered he was using a dating app to meet other women for kinky sex, and she felt awfully betrayed. She now craves dynamic hot monogamy, as it used to be with him, and she would like to build a family. But as far as she is observing, the dating market is full of men that do not want to commit. She feels depressed and wonders if calling George back is a good idea, so she wants to discuss it with a therapist.
After a few months of psychotherapy, Elisa meets a new man, which is love at first sight. He is in a long marriage with one kid and declares he is on his way out. His wife agrees it is over, but they are taking it slow, figuring out how to break the news to their son. Elisa states this isn’t an affair: “Their marriage may not be legally over, but in every other way, it is.” It seems she is turning judgment into justification, as the issue now is on her. This assumption will lead to consequences Elisa needs to face.
Prof. Mehmet Sungur discusses the case presented by Francesca Tripodi, where infidelity has to be approached from different sides:
1. What could be the meaning of an affair?
2. How does the individual’s perception of a betrayal change, depending on the role (who suffers and who acts)?
3. When is a marriage really over, and how should the therapist help patients considering the risk of pain and disappointment?
