Is it cheating if you're not married?
We all know when you're married and you cheat its because you've broken your vows to love cherish and be faithful. There are no vows or rings when you're just dating and you technically aren't "locked down" until you get married. So I'm wondering how many feel its possible to cheat when you're not married or can you only cheat when those vows are said?... GO!!!
It doesn't matter whether you are married or just dating. If you are in a relationship, marriage or otherwise, commitment and fidelity is a must for such a union to flourish into something beautiful and long-lasting.
If you have made a commitment to someone it is totally dishonest to do anything that breaks that commitment. If you can't stay faithful to someone before marriage, what makes you think you can do it afterward. Fidelity starts when a person enters a relationship, not just after the ring is on your finger.
If you are with someone exclusively, married or not, it would be cheating. If you are dating and still playing the field, and you haven't made any promises or commitments, then you can do as you please without guilt.
marriage is something invented to prove your faithfulness to one person but it isn't the only way to show it. if you are with someone, then it is morally wrong to be having sex with other people unless it is a mutual agreement.
Betrayal is not the property of status, it is emptiness of a promise.
Yes I think it is cheating. You need to build trust and love before you get married and why would you want to marry a person who can not be faithful to you. If they cheat before your married, the changes of that changing once your vows are said is much higher. Respect and loyalty is what makes a good marriage!
before asking if it is cheating if you're not married, first think, how would i feel if my partner was to be unfaithly to me, if you are a normal human being this idea would upset you
I believe if you are a couple, married or not that cheating is cheating! I believe if men and women are not ready to dedicate themselfs to the other person that they should not jump in to relationships period unless they are truly ready.
I would not do it ,although many would say it only applies with marriage, but you have to look at your own values. I think if you are in a long term relationship and you cheat that is not a healthy relationship.
When you’re in a relationship, you are expected to be commited and faithful to that person, even if you two are not married.
It depends upon the nature of your partnership, only you can decide whether or not a non monogamous relationship is cheating or not. If you have agreed with your partner that you will be faithful to each other and then act contradictory to your agreement then yes, you are in fact cheating. If you have agreed otherwise, whatever that may be, I would naturally say no.
A piece of paper does not make a committed relationship. So it doesn't matter if you're married or not, if you're in a committed relationship with someone and you step out, then yes, cheating is cheating.
Yes, it's cheating yourself and the person whom you're dating. You'll feel the guilt as though you were married.
Yes absolutely. Just because you aren't married doesn't mean that you aren't betraying somebody's trust.

Do you think that marriage is really necessary?My parents got married because "it was the right thing to do" not because they were in love with each other. Now after a nasty deparation and 27 agonizing years, they are finally happy.
