    I heard something today about a couple we know. It got me to thinking about adultery and what some posters have said here at USMB and situations and people I have known over the years.


    It is a sad situation when one you love is seeing someone other than you or you even think they are. It is also sad when a relationship has come to the point where one feels they must get their affections from someone other than the one they have made commitments to.

    How much of a commitment is required betwen two people that both should remain faithful?

    Your answers are private as it is a closed poll.

    Multiple choice poll.

    I still don't understand how one can cheat, then look in their partners eyes like everything is ok.

    I don't think it is just a matter of it being okay but love can overcome anything. I think it is really easy for everyone to get a me, me it's all about me type thing going.

    Don't you think that's really a decision each couple has to make every day?

    If you are having sex with someone, they deserve to know about everyone else that you are sleeping with. That is their life and their future on the line, and if they expect you to be monogamous you should either respect their wishes or part ways.

    If you are married, this is not only a moral obligation but should be a legal obligation as well. (And no, I don't care if Gunny calls me a retard again for saying it.)

    To cheat or to not cheat, or getting over a cheat?

    Attempting to put rules of affairs of the heart is an exercise in futility.

    We all do it of course, and then are surprised when it doesn't work out.

    Bit it's so fun to think that logic can always rule over emotions and biology. :lol:

    Logic is a tool, not a motive.

    Biology and emotions are that which motivate us to USE logic.

    Nobody but whores fall in love or lust because of logic.
