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...

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.
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.
