Some people go out and "cheat" and they tell their spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend, openly they are doing it. Does that make it not cheating if they are not doing it behind their back?

Yes, it's cheating any way you look at it.
Cheating means lying and betraying, If someone tells you up front that they are going to have sex with others and you (choose) to stay with them you can't say you they betrayed or misled you. It's either an "open relationship" or you condone it.
Cheating does not mean lying and betraying. If both believe in having sex with others, it is not a monogomous relationship so there is no possibility of cheating. There are relationships where the partner knows but isn't happy about it. Still cheat.
This could be very complicated and turn out very bad for at least one of the partners. If they continue to "cheat", it's still disrespecting the relationship right?
If someone knows their partner is having sex with other people and they choose to stay with them then they are condoning it. If you are unhappy in a relationship and choose to stay then (you) are (choosing) to be unhappy. No one is stuck with anyone!

Thanks, I think so too.
I agree that (confessing) about breaking the rules or cheating (after) one has done so is still cheating. Anytime "agreed upon" rules are broken it's cheating. Catching someone cheating is "busting them". It's all about expectations being set.
