Interesting New Yorker Magazine article by Philip Weiss. He offers an explanation (not a defense) for Eliot Spitzer's (and other men's) infidelity. Guys will understand and appreciate Weiss's contentions. Most women, particularly wives won't.
With all the various published affairs by politicians, athletes and celebrities, does this topic really raise an eyebrow anymore? I can't think of many other topics that generate such hypocrisy.
This article offers a different perspective from most of the others written on the Spitzer infidelity.
