Can You Ever Overcome Infidelity in a Relationship? | ASK DR NIKKI

“Hi Dr Nikki. I’m a 40-year-old man, married for 13 years. We have a kid and I found my wife is cheating on me again. I discovered her four years ago having an affair. I forgave her and we worked together to rebuild our relationship but now I’ve realized that she is doing the same thing. I don’t really want to keep going with this. Is it better to finish? I don’t love her the same.”   When it comes to rebuilding a relationship after infidelity, it’s a very complex matter and I feel that as a society, we quickly demonize somebody for doing it when we want to help the other person move on. We say things like “that person disrespected you”, “they have broken your trust”. And whilst that might be true, the biggest thing with infidelity is asking why. That might start to give us insight into…

Barnaby got one thing right…

Saying the words Barnaby and right is not something I thought I would put in the same sentence. I know I am late to the party with my two cents on last Sunday night’s tell-all interview, but that’s because I’m not sure I have too much to say. After another run-in with the paparazzi and claims that this interview was to stop this so-called harassment, it encouraged me to look at what did go right with their tell-all talk. Their story might have not stropped interest, but Barnaby did make one interesting and very right point. “You show me someone who has a perfect marriage and I’ll show you a perfect liar.” Barnaby might not have delved too far into his marriage, but this line is the most significant I’ve heard come out of his mouth. No one has the perfect marriage yet everyone seems to be trying to get…

Ask Dr Nikki – In a relationship and addicted to dating apps

Hi Dr Nikki, I’m interested to hear your thoughts on addiction to dating sites? My partner of a few years just can’t seem to stay off them! He’s never met anyone or physically had an affair whilst we have been together, but seems unable to stay off them. He can’t even explain why he does it as we have a generally happy relationship and a great sex life. He was on and off these sites and actively dating on them for 5 years before we met, but never managed more than 3 months with any one person. We met online and I’m the longest relationship he has had (2 years). I feel like maybe he’s either waiting for it to end because that seems to be his experience with online dating or he’s just addicted to the thrill of the new. On the plus side, he is now seeking help…

WHAT happens when you hide in the office of a local ‘massage parlour’? You learn a lot about life and ‘extras’ like ‘happy endings’. PEOPLE cheat, it’s a fact of life. I’m not trying to downplay this issue, but we need to be more aware of the topics surrounding infidelity. You can turn a shoulder and think it will never happen to you, or you can open your eyes and work on what needs improving and discuss what needs to be addressed. For a recent podcast exploring sex addiction, I found myself at 12pm on a Thursday at a local massage parlour in Sydney, and I’m not talking about a plush day spa. I have previously visited a high-class brothel, but there was something different about this place and the volume of people that frequented it. At the brothel, it was very discreet and felt like those who were in the…
