Why do you think men (and women) cheat?

It’s the latest story like it to make headlines, but the news of General David Petraeus’s extramarital affair reads all too familiar. General Petraeus was someone with a lot to lose (he resigned from his position as Director of the CIA this week) and he joins a long line of powerful men who made major mistakes: Bill Clinton, Anthony Wiener, Eliot Spitzer… to name a few. Dr. Phil joins me today to talk about his life and new book, but he’ll stick around to discuss why powerful men cheat with the founder of Ashley Madison (a dating site that encourages affairs) and a self-proclaimed “other woman.” Why do you think men — and women, cheat?
