    None because I don't want to spend the rest of my life with someone I can't trust.

    Don't cheat you could really hurt someone and what goes around comes around.

    I think you need to let circumstances dictate that.  I have been married over 21 years and that would be difficult to throw away.

    Now, Im not advocating cheating but at the end of the day there would be a lot of questions.

    I think in my case, if it has been an ongoing thing then ya things would probably be done.  If it were a one time thing then maybe we would have to look at counselling or something.

    Now if you asked my wife this she would be with you guys.  She would say its over and thats all there is to it.  So ya people have differing opinions.

      on what?

      1. Colebabie profile image58
        Colebabieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        On the relationship, on what type of cheating we're talking about.

        1. hinckles koma profile image61
          hinckles komaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          physical relations.

          1. Colebabie profile image58
            Colebabieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Ok, kissing, oral sex, intercourse...
            All of those are physical.

                No that's cool smile
                Cheating to me is doing anything you wouldn't do in front of me. My boyfriend knows I could care less about flirting or looking at other girls. But whether or not I would forgive someone and take them back depends on the situation. I would like to say "No way! Get outta here!" but I'm not in the situation, I don't know what I would do.

                  If you really give it a thought, you will see that all what you listed are no more serious than a hand shaking, and could be easily ignored - they do not endanger your property (your man). He still stays yours. smile

                  The real perceived danger comes with emotional attachment smile

                  1. Colebabie profile image58
                    Colebabieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

                    Not to me smile If he cheats, and it is "just sex" no emotions involved, it means that he went looking for something he felt he couldn't get from me. That means there are emotions. Always.

    Because in some cases, if they divorce.. there goes half their stuff!

      james hoyerposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      That is a question that has a lot of gray in it. Very seldom have I seen a divorce that really served a real purpose, the children are usualy the losers.

    I may Forgive them.., but that doesn't mean I would stick around to have them do it again.

  14. Colebabie profile image58
    Colebabieposted 8 years ago

    Was it just once, or was it a relationship? Does he love her? Who is she? What kind of physical cheating are we talking about? Are we married? Do we have children?

    Nope, not just emotional attachment but emotions in general are dangerous as well.

      Sex is not an emotional experience?

      1. Colebabie profile image58
        Colebabieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        That's what I'm saying smile If someone cheats emotions are always involved. And when emotions are involved, it gets dangerous.

    If your man is yours, he will return. Otherwise, he never been yours to start with. smile

    1. Colebabie profile image58
      Colebabieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Return? Why should he leave at all?

      1. Misha profile image70
        Mishaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Umm, weren't we talking about cheating?

        1. Colebabie profile image58
          Colebabieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          Yes. You said if he is mine he will return. But why should he leave to begin with?

          1. Misha profile image70
            Mishaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            I was talking about returning to you from another woman, after spending some time with her. Or to me from another man, does not really differ. smile

            We are quite curious animals, you know. smile

            1. Colebabie profile image58
              Colebabieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

              I understand. So I'll ask the question again, "Why leave in the first place?" Is it just out of curiosity?

              1. Misha profile image70
                Mishaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

                Depends on what exactly you mean by "leave". smile

                1. Colebabie profile image58
                  Colebabieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

                  "Spending some time with her" Whether that be breaking it off with me and being with her. Or seeing us both simultaneously.

  18. Eaglekiwi profile image79
    Eaglekiwiposted 8 years ago

    I think cheating begins in the mind first ,then when the opportunity presents itself, it becomes a reality.

    Or the opposite effect , I dont accept there is a reason to cheat , so I wont be likely too, cuz I already decided.(in my mind)

  20. Misha profile image70
    Mishaposted 8 years ago

    If it is seeing you both (or thre, four, etc.) - likely just a curiosity or indecisiveness. If it is breaking up with you - this is more serious, and likely there are other reasons for this. smile

    1. Colebabie profile image58
      Colebabieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Either way. If he comes back to me, that means it must have gone wrong with her and I'm his second choice. No thank you.

      1. Misha profile image70
        Mishaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Nah, it means that he checked and confirmed that you are the FIRST choice. You will easily see this if you add one or two more girls to our scenario. He goes to any of them, and comes back to YOU. smile

        1. Colebabie profile image58
          Colebabieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          He shouldn't have to check smile "Oh I looked around and couldn't find anyone better, so yeah.. you are the one"

              I think that open relationships can definitely work. I just choose not to be in one.

                I sure see you don't. May be later, cause I do think you are one of the few women around who can actually manage it. And you deserve peace of mind it brings in. smile

    i tend to have a somewhat 'Bohemian' view about issues like this so at the risk of getting run out of town on a rail, i will just say that there are worse things a partner or spouse can do to you other than cheating.

    trust me on this.

    I'd forgive, because holding onto something like that is more hurtful than letting go.

    But I wouldn't stay with the guy.  Staying with someone who values you so little is even more hurtful.
