Publisher's Summary

It's all about cheating - the biggest threat to intimacy. Typically, men are good at creating rifts in relationships but terrible at mending them, especially after they've repeatedly betrayed their partner through sexual infidelity. For the most part, cheating men are both intimacy-challenged and empathy-challenged, and, as such, they lack the skills needed to overcome the damage wrought by their infidelity.

Robert Weiss has spent over 20 years in the treatment of sex and intimacy issues. He's helped both cheating men and their betrayed spouses move through the horrors of infidelity. In Out of the Doghouse he shares his expertise, illuminating the ways in which men can move beyond their usual feeble efforts to smooth things over. Saying "I'm sorry" and trying to "buy forgiveness" with flowers and jewelry may temporarily calm the stormy seas of infidelity. However, these actions do nothing to re-establish intimacy and trust - the key components to help the distraught woman feel better about her relationship over the long-term and get over the cheating.

The simple truth is, men and women are very different when it comes to intimacy and relationships. While men are able to compartmentalize things like sexual infidelity, women typically view cheating as an affront to their entire relationship. They think, "If he is lying to me about sex, he's probably lying to me about everything." For betrayed women, trust just flat-out disintegrates. And without proper guidance, men have little hope of restoring it. Weiss provides exactly the needed guidance in Out of the Doghouse, helping men move past the usual infidelity roadblocks that result from cheating in ways that will not only save a damaged relationship, but restore intimacy to make it better than ever.

Perfect with only one regret.

I hope that the man I love reads or listens to this. I gave him a hard copy and sent him the audio version as well. He is a serial cheater and sex addict who has attempted suicide on several occasions as a result of my catching him acting out. I can only hope this book speaks to him. It explained what I am experiencing and what I need and want perfectly. My only regret is that Robert Weiss is no longer seeing patients.

Exactly what I want my intimate partner to know!

This audiobook hits the nail right on the head! I am hoping my intimate partner will agree to listen to this book together with me to spark conversations toward either healing the hurt and bringing us closer together for true intimacy, or if that doesn't happen, at least addressing the issue of his betrayal well enough to move on separately in a healthy manner. So many times while listening to it on my own, I found myself exclaiming, "that's exactly right!" when hearing something that echoed exactly how I feel. While it validated my feelings, I think the book offers some positive insight with helpful ways to overcome a breach of trust, and build a stronger, closer relationship, or decide to just separate totally. I love how the book inspires one to think on the best path forward, after betrayal. Out of the doghouse, whether toward a closer relationship with the primary intimate partner, or closure on the problem before going separate ways, I think this book is helpful, either way.

So helpful!!!

I heard about this book from Rob Weiss and I sent it to my boyfriend. I listened to it while we were separated. I feel it explains exactly what a woman wants the man to know and what he can do to make amends. I feel it is a perfectly helpful book.

Nailed it

Got this book for my boyfriend when i found out he cheated. Best decision. Not only is it helping him to see how’s he’s hurt me, but it’s helped me feel justified in my emotions and not so alone. Recommend for men and the hurt women in their lives
