Can you be manipulated into cheating?

Is it really possible for a person to be manipulated and mind controlled into having an affair?

How can I tell if it's the truth or just an excuse?

I don't want to doubt the counsellers words or my husbands words to me about his affair but something tells me it's an excuse not to loose me.

  • How did he say he was manipulated? Manipulation is one thing, but unless it's blackmail, I just can't see it being something that excuses infidelity (and then you have to explain what you're being blackmailed for anyway). Furthermore, if your counselor isn't also the counselor of this other woman, I'd take his assessment of her manipulative prowess with a grain of salt.

    I feel like an average guy should be aware enough to tell when there's temptation to cheat, and then it's his decision whether he will or will walk (or run) away.

  • Um... no. I'm not the cheating kind. I don't care who thinks it's right or what they say. I know the difference between right and wrong.

  • No I don't think so ultimately the decision is yours to make if you choose to cheat or not. Personally I think he's feeding you a line.

    I think it's possible, yes. I don't think that is what happened, mind you... was he kidnapped? Brainwashed and tortured? Did he develop Stockholm Syndrome? Probably not. SO unless your husband has gone through some serious ahit about which you are unaware, *I* don't believe it's likely that he was subject to mind control.

    Of course, I am not your counselor, nor do I know your husband's state of mind or circumstance, so I could be wrong.
