Peggy Vaughan, (1936-2012), was an internationally recognized expert in the area of extramarital affairs and the founder of www.dearpeggy.com. Since 1996 her website has served as an Extramarital Affairs Resource Center for professionals and the public alike.
She was a pioneer in providing more understanding and perspective about this issue. Among her unique contributions to the field, two stand out: first, the importance of ongoing honest communication in personal recovery and rebuilding trust in the marriage, and second, the role of society in allowing and even supporting affairs.
Peggy published 5 books about affairs, 3 books on other life issues, conducted 3 major surveys, wrote many articles and made numerous media appearances.
She was survived by her husband of 57 years, two grown children and three grandchildren, all of whom live in San Diego, CA.
