New York Congressman Anthony Weiner continues to fight for his political career after admitting that he sent lewd photographs and texts to a half-dozen women over the past three years.

"Sexting" hits too close to home for Penelope Cline of Laguna Woods. 

It's was New Year's Eve 2009, when she says the message came across clear, right there on her husband's cell phone: "Next year will be our year... " Cline says she traced the number and sure enough, it was from another woman.

Cline is now divorced, but for many couples "sexting" is becoming more common, and in turn, becoming a relationship dealbreaker.

"It's very indicative of sexual addiction, they're willing to risk everything and that's what addicts do" says psychologist Jill Hubbard.

Hubbard says women like words, and men like pictures and for married couple "sexting" is just as emotional as a physical affair.
