CIA Director David Petraeus resigned after admitting to an affair and one expert says many people can relate to his scandal.

Marriage and Family Therapist Dr. Stephen Grinstead says approximately 30% to 60% of spouses cheat on their partner.

Dr. Grinstead says, “A lot of people who have high stress lifestyles are always looking for the next adrenaline fix. There’s nothing like doing something secretive, shameful and elicit to bring up the energy level.”

He says couples can find effective ways to deal with cheating though and about half of all couples who seek help are able to save their marriages.

Watch the video for some of Grinstead’s advice for struggling couples.
