Three-time Grammy nominee Michele Pillar says she was 29 when she had an extramarital affair that contributed to the demise of her first marriage. “I don’t think people have affairs for sexual reasons,” she says. “I think they have affairs because, somewhere along the line, they’ve lost their voice.”
