The Mistress Trifecta: How One Woman Experienced Infidelity From Every Side (VIDEO)

Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani hosted a segment on HuffPost Live about how infidelity affects different relationships. Mandy Stadtmiller, Deputy Editor at XOJane, described how she completed what she calls the 'mistress trifecta' by being the child of an affair, being cheated on by her husband, and sleeping with a married man.

“One of the things I say about the experience that I had is that I developed so much more compassion and empathy for my ex-husband by experiencing what I did,” Stadtmiller said. “I try to look at cheating from a very nonjudgmental place and an empathic place. I’m just such a realist. I always say that if I get married again, I don’t know that I’d expect my husband to remain faithful.”
