Dear Dr. Gilda,
Has anybody else lost a relationship because of cybersex? I believe it is an addiction. Nineteen years of my marriage went down the drain! What tips do you have for helping me get over this? I know that my wife did not physically "cheat" on me, but she "emotionally cheated." How can I explain this to people when talking about my divorce?

Dear Real Marriage, Pretend Wife,
Plenty of marriages fall prey to cybersex. Anything that consumes someone so much and distracts from a partnership is indeed an addiction. And addictions must be treated.
