Important things to know about affairs

Louisville, Kentucky donor and trustee Jonathan Blue has recently asked the courts to subpoena University at Texas-Austin head football coach Charlie Rene Strong’s cellular phone as well as his phone bills, calendars, and other travel records as evidence to his divorce case with his wife, Tracy, as proof that Tracy as having an affair with Strong, who was head football coach in Louisville from 2010 to 2013 before getting hired in Texas, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

The subpoena also wants Strong to provide information about a Movado watch, jewelry, shoes, and other pieces of clothing that Tracy Blue allegedly gave to Strong during the course of their affair.

According to the website of the Fort Worth divorce lawyers of The Maynard Law Firm, sometimes, when one party of a married couple cheats, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is no longer in love with his or her partner; sometimes it’s more of a current dissatisfaction with the state of his or her marriage. Clinical psychologist Andra Brosh, PhD, for her part, says, “While [the cheating party is] fulfilled in some areas, like being a provider, the romance may be missing.” To get over this slump, couples should engage in dating activities, schedule their coupling, and talk to each other about each other in general, and not just about work and their children.

This article in Woman’s Day Magazine points out another thing to know about cheaters is that they usually cheat with people they know and not with random strangers, which would make them even more guiltier after the affair. They also tend to have more bolstered sex drives during the course of the affair, with intimacy expert Mary Jo Rapini noting that, “When a man starts cheating, he becomes hyperactive sexually,” because a man tends to use his awakened sex drive, with his wife, with whom he is still the most comfortable having sexual relations with.
