Sociologist promotes infidelity
UPI: LONDON, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- A French sociologist said in her new book that many married British couples are miserable due to their "sour and rigid English view" of infidelity.
Dr. Catherine Hakim said in her book, "The New Rules," that the "sour and rigid English view" of infidelity leads couples to wind up in miserable "celibate" lives, The Daily Telegraph reported Monday.
Hakim describes monogamous husbands and wives as "caged animals" who need to explore a "wild side" with extramarital affairs.
"Sex is no more a moral issue than eating a good meal," Hakim wrote. "The fact that we eat most meals at home with spouses and partners does not preclude eating out in restaurants to sample different cuisines and ambiences, with friends or colleagues. Anyone rejecting a fresh approach to marriage and adultery, with a new set of rules to go with it, fails to recognize the benefits of a revitalized sex life outside the home."
