    Should Infidelity be classed as "a mistake"?

    .....after all people knew fully well, what they were doing at the time.

    As long as the person in cause was not drugged I don't think it's a mistake...

    interesting question...yes people know fully well what are they doing ..it cannot be considered as mistake but deliberate action..unless person is not in his/her sense at that time..

    The "mistake" part is being caught.

    It was a terrible mistake, as I didn't think you would find out.

    Had I had known that it would become public knowledge, I would not have done it. It was a terrible mistake.

    etc. etc.

    Whether you forgive is another matter, but as pisean282311 and Georgiana85 both say, there no mistake in infidelity.

    It's more than a mistake, it's a betrayal of the trust you and your partner have built.

    The only mistake would be not ending the original relationship before starting the new one.

    I agree with everyone that classifies infidelity as a choice vs. a mistake. A mistake lacks intent. A choice does not. Many people make poor choices and if they had to do it all over again, would make different choices. Yet I still would not classify this as a mistake.
