it definitely does link back to childhood. my wife never grew up with her parents. she grew up a single child with her grandmother and some aunts. it was not a good childhood. later on her parents had a very ugly divorce about 14 yrs ago and haven't spoken to each other since. very ugly. we cant even visit her dad without keeping it a secret from her mum. there is just so much of hate. my wife always needed more affirmation than i could give. of course not, im not perfect. i have my brokenness to deal with too, everyone has. but childhood definitely does contribute to the vulnerability of having an affair. Her AP too had a some what similar childhood. He was the youngest child and took care of his dying mum (cancer) during his teenage years. both of them had lost childhoods

Probably a 10 to 12 month affair (I think, cause no one seems to remember anything!) Bleeding heart...
