>> in the last week hackers revealed names, e-mail address, preferences up to 37 million users of that cheating site. >> so, what should you do if you learn that your spouse is on that list? joining us now is psychologist, monica mandel, founder of love matters llc, good afternoon. >> so, before calling a divorce attorney, you say you need to do two things. what are they? >> you need to do individual and couples counselling. this is the time to change the slogan, life is short, have an affair, it life is short, come clean with your spouse, and try to rebuild your relationship. >> so individual or couples. why the difference there? >> well, if you look at the site, there are really two types of personalities of the people who joined ashley madison one is the cheater, the thrill seeker, always looking for more, and bigger, and better, and different. if you're married to this person, you need to understand what attracted to you him.
, why you stayed with him, or her, and why you're in love with them. now it, has come out that it is mostly men on ashley madison but there are a percentage of women. there is also the people on ashley madison who have a friendship with their spouse. they get along, they go out to dinner, they can raise the kids, but they feel that they are missing the emotional and physical component. so they discreetly thought that they looked elsewhere to fulfill this. >> so tell me about the process. once you would decide maybe to go for divorce, do you go into it angry, do you -- i mean, you may start out angry, but how do you proceed? do you really try to be punitive in the process? >> this is not the time for punishment or blame. this is really the time foreign tree spec sean. and i think that if counselling is your first approach, individuals, and couples, you might finds that
you don't need the divorce attorney as your first point of attack, and if you do, at least you have learned something about yourself, and your relationship, and you're tell to go break bad patterns, rather than to be angry. >> now, of course, cheat something nothing new, adultery, but internet seems to make it so much easier to get that connection. but the reasons for it, are still pretty similar, seems recent stud business people who cheat, what motivated them to cheat? >> there have been a lot of studies, especially on men who cheated. and what they found that almost half cheated because there was not an emotional connection with their spouse. 77% of those polled said they cheated because their friends cheated. so, for everyone out there, be aware of the company that you are spouse is keeping. >> no kidding. >> and there is a bit of a silver lining. 66% of men polled said that they did feel guilty about having an affair. >> but what about the whole idea of once a cheater always
a cheaper -- cheater? >> i think you have your personality, but a personality can be tweaked through counselling. and in the case where a spouse felt that they weren't listened to or heard and their needs were not met, counselling goes a very long way to healing. and for those that had a one night stand, and showed a lot of remorse, again, counselling can really help to save that marriage, and to rebuild trust, and love. >> monica, thank you. >> and that is "eyewitness news" at noon, i'm pat ciarrocchi. >> i'm erika von tiehl. for justin, all of us here, thank you so much for watching. >> the young and the restless is next. >> ♪ >> ♪
