Woman's Hour- you can listen again, and there is also a follow-up discussion on the Weekend Woman's Hour prog, today ( you will need to listen again).

yes, they do. there are all kinds of reasons why people have affairs.

good people engage in all kinds of behaviours which aren't good.

I would have thought that people aren't usually totally good or totally bad. Good people can do bad things and vice versa...

well,that was the point of the programme- do listen.

Yes I would like to think I am a good person but have had affairs in the past.

Wish I would have known about this as I would have been interested.

It always interests me when someone comes on Mumsnet, mentions they have had an affair and immediately gets shot down in flames.

We are all human with needs and the capability of doing right and wrong

mindingmum you can Listen AGain- just go to BBC Radio 4 on the web and look for Woman's Hour - it is listed as a highlight or something, and then it was discussed again today- that is Weekend Woman's Hour. !

I'm a bad person but haven't had any affairs.

Yes, of course a good person can do a bad thing. But having an affair means doing a bad thing again and again and again!
