Would you let your spouse cheat to save your relationship or marriage
How much do you love your spouse?
I was ask this question the other day, and had to ponder my answer carefully. There seems to be a deeper part of this question than what you see on the surface. I was sure I would say no in the beginning, but now I'm not so sure.
Consider this; If you are a male and had prostate cancer and could no longer function in the bedroom, would you deprive your spouse from satisfaction? What if you were in a horrible accident and was paralyzed would you be so selfish as to deprive your partner of a sexual life?
If you are a female and something happened that you could no longer have sex, would you expect your partner to do the same? Some would, others would just turn a blind eye to the obvious and pretend that sex is just not that important.
Though religious moral beliefs may dictate your decision, that doesn't eliminate the question or thought process involved. Human instinct to interact with other people doesn't just disappear. Why do you think people cheat in relationships? You can have an other wise perfect relationship, but if doesn't include sex, people will seek it out.
I know the answer to this question may also depend on ones age. I would contend that a couple in their 20's, 30's and 40's would seek out sexual companionship more than a couple in their 60's and beyond.
See the answers is not so easy anymore. I would hate to think that I would be so selfish that I could not let my spouse continue to have a satisfying sex life. This can happen at any age, some might say just let your partner move on with their life, but if you love each other and enjoy being with each other in every other aspect, is that really the answer?
I would appreciate your comments or to hear your point of view on this. I am still pondering this deeply. Though I have written several articles on saving relationships and infidelity, this question is probably the toughest I've had to answer.
