Abstract

The authors describe marital therapy in a family in which the crisis started when the husband's unfaithfulness was revealed. A number of marital problems were disclosed in the course of therapy, first and foremost – a shaky balance between the need for closeness and uncertainty coupled with apprehension of closeness. The very fact of unfaithfulness and conflicts concerning the husband' sex-mistress turned out to be a key regulator of this marital relationship.
