You’re right to be cautious when you hear these words: “I’m telling you, we’re just friends.”

Good people in good marriages are having affairs. The workplace and the Internet have become fertile breeding grounds for “friendships” that can slowly and insidiously turn into love affairs. Yet you can protect your relationship from emotional or sexual betrayal by recognizing the red flags that mark the stages of slipping into an improper, dangerous intimacy that can threaten your marriage.

Shirley P. Glass, Ph.D., one of the world's leading experts on infidelity, draws on more than two decades of original research and hundreds of clinical cases to provide a step-by-step guide through the process of infidelity -- from suspicion and revelation to healing.

With her profound, practical guidance, you can prevent infidelity and, if it happens, recover and heal from it.

Editorial Reviews

MicheleWeiner-Davis Author of The Divorce Remedy and The Sex-Starved Marriage Every once in a while a book comes along that is so illuminating, instructive, down-to-earth, and inspiring that it truly transforms lives. Since no marriage -- including yours -- is immune to infidelity, NOT "Just Friends" is a godsend for couples.
John M. Gottman, Ph.D. Author of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work and The Relationship Cure In this long-awaited, breakthrough book, Dr. Glass has provided practical advice with a scientific basis and profoundly sensitive clinical experience about the highly destructive problem of infidelity. She alerts us to the new crisis of infidelity and shows us how to safeguard our most precious relationships from this danger.
Pat Love, Ed.D. Author of The Truth about Love and Hot Monogamy I love this book and loaned it to a friend whose husband was "not just friends" with a coworker. They believe it prevented a serious breach from forming in their marriage. A must-read for anyone who ever hopes to be happy in a long-term relationship.
Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., Author of Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples NOT "Just Friends" puts a new face on infidelity using clinical experience and current research. I recommend it for anyone considering an affair, in an affair, or recovering from an affair.
Frank Pittman, M.D. Author of Private Lies: Infidelity and the Betrayal of Intimacy I treasure Dr. Shirley Glass, and I treasure this book. No one understands affairs better than she does. She offers her traumatized readers compassion, wisdom, and unshakeable common sense.
Peggy Vaughan Host of DearPeggy.com and author of The Monogamy Myth This is the most comprehensive book on affairs that I have ever read and the only one that completely reflects the reality of affairs. No matter how many other books you have read on this subject, read this one. It is absolutely wonderful!
Ira Glass Host of National Public Radio's This American Life It's a relief my mom wrote a great book so I can be totally honest on the jacket cover. NOT "Just Friends" offers one surprising, radical insight after another, including: Infidelity doesn't start the first time your partner sleeps with someone else; it begins when your partner becomes closer to someone else than to you.

    I purchased 3 books , this book I read twice!!! I had really good days reading this book and bad days? So, when that happened I would put the book down and start again later. My only regret is I wish I had heard of this book sooner

    I really was not helped or impressed with this book. As a Christian woman I need solid advise and information, and I believe this book was written for the secular world. Not once did I see a scripture quote or any reference to God, in fact one chapter talked about homosexual infidelity. What a disapointment!

    I have read many books on the subject of infidelity and how to get past the betrayal. I hadn't found any that I thought covered all areas of infidelity as this one. This book adequately lays out the why's, the how's and shows how to move past the betrayal to living a healthy happy marriage. However, the repair includes the betrayer to help the victim get past the lies, hurts, and more. In essence the betrayer becomes the healer to the victim. It shows how to move forward with honesty, openness and more. This book covers more areas than I ever thought was part of infidelity. Thanks, Dr. Glass, for writing such a great book for many who are in need of healing.

    I agree with another reviewer that the research is solid, but if we smooth over the sin too much is that not the same as dismissing and in truth, approving of it? I finished with a sense this is a "pass" when, not if adultery is committed. The one aspect of the book I REALLY agree with is being PRO-ACTIVE!!!

    Excellent book. This book addresses the feelings of both the unfaithful and the betrayed partner, so it is helpful for both. The author described feelings that made me think "that's exactly how I feel". Lots of good ideas for how to put it back together, and how to decide if you can't.
