Elizabeth Edwards should be commended, not criticized.
 
Elizabeth Edwards should be commended for speaking so candidly about her husband?s infidelity and its physical, mental and emotional effect on her, says infidelity expert, Ruth Houston, founder of www.InfidelityAdvice.com and the author of" Is He Cheating on You?? 829 Telltale Signs.

Though many people find it objectionable that Elizabeth Edwards has chosen to write and speak so openly about the affair, and question her motives for doing so, Houston, a New York-based infidelity expert who is frequently called on by the media to comment on high profile infidelity and other infidelity issues in the news, looks at Elizabeth Edwards? candor from a different perspective.

Elizabeth Edwards Speaks for Women with Cheating Mates

Speaking from the standpoint of someone who has been researching infidelity for the past 15 years, as well as from the standpoint of someone who was once a victim of infidelity herself,

Houston says, ? Elizabeth Edwards is performing a valuable service to other women who are struggling with issues of infidelity, by pulling back the curtain and exposing a side of infidelity that?s rarely seen. Most of Elizabeth?s critics have probably never been on the receiving side of an affair.?

Houston points out that media coverage of high profile infidelity usually focuses attention on the cheater -- who he is, why he cheated, how he got caught, what his infidelity will mean to his career. ?The betrayed wife often suffers in silence, says Houston, ?Her voice is seldom heard. Elizabeth Edwards is the voice of those 38 to 53 million women with cheating mates.?

Elizabeth Edwards Exposes Aspects of Infidelity the Public Seldom Sees

Houston continues, ?When women like Elizabeth Edwards, Hillary Clinton, and Dina Matos McGreevey share their personal experiences as betrayed wives, they direct public attention to aspects of infidelity that usually go unnoticed or ignored. They reveal a side of infidelity that the public rarely gets to see. Judging from the criticism these women have garnered for ?airing their dirty laundry,? and openly discussing their husband?s affairs, this is a side of infidelity the public would rather not see.?

Says Houston, ?In writing Resilience, and speaking so candidly in her interviews with Oprah, Matt Lauer, and Larry King, Elizabeth Edwards needs to be commended for the support she is giving to other women with cheating mates.?

?Betrayed wives can see that they are not alone -- that all women face similar issues when trying to cope or come to terms with their husbands? extramarital affairs. ?

?Men who are cheating, or who have cheated on their wives or significant others, have seen and heard firsthand the hurt, humiliation and heartbreak they inflict when they have an affair.?

Valuable Infidelity Lessons Learned from Elizabeth Edwards? Book

Houston says, ?Instead of condemning Elizabeth Edwards for speaking out about her personal experiences as a betrayed wife, we need to take a long hard look at what she has to say. Beneath the surface, there are many valuable lessons to be learned.?

According to Houston, much can be learned about infidelity -- even from the portions of Resilience that were leaked to the public before the book went on sale. On her Infidelity News and Views blog at http://infidelitynewsandviews.blogspot.com Houston discusses the lessons women can learn from Elizabeth Edwards? physical reaction to her husband?s confession of his betrayal, her choice not to refer to her husband?s mistress by name in the book, and the implications of John Edwards not telling Elizabeth Edwards the whole truth when he first confessed his affair.

On her Infidelity Advice blog at http://infidelityadvice.blogspot.com/ Houston discusses the some of the reasons why Elizabeth Edwards, and other women stay with men who cheat.
