Is cheating wrong?


Is it ever OK to cheat on your loved one?

What if you haven't had sex in a million years? Maybe a trillion.

Or, or....the relationship has been emotionally dead for a good while but you are stuck for one reason or another?

It isn't cheating if you get a divorce.

Divorce is the product of a rotting society where primacy of individual choice is prized above everything.

Every situation is unique, and it all depends on your personal line of ethics.

Or get dead! My wife told me some 40 years ago that the women in her family do not divorce husbands, they bury them.

It's wrong. When you enter a relationship you have SURRENDERED THE RIGHT(!!) to do anything (relationship stuff) with another person. Just like when you enter a partnership in business you generally surrender the right to do certain things without that partner. Oh I'm messing with your rights? then don't say you won't do it and you can retain your right!

And those women (and Vise-versa) who say it's not cheating if it's with the same sex as you are just trying to find an excuse to mess around behind their boyfriends (and vise-versa) back.

If you can't stay loyal then don't tell someone you'll reserve yourself for them!

I'm married 21 years, and I say no, never. My wife and I have talked about it occasionally, and we agree it is an utter betrayal and neither one of us could forgive such a thing. How could trust ever be regained?

For us, we entered a relationship and made vows before God, and to each other. My word is not so easily broken.
