What if the spouse just refused to have sex?
In thought or deed?
No, never. If my marriage is that bad, I'll get a divorce and THEN I'll go looking for someone else, but as long as I'm married, I'm faithful.
I have no respect for anyone that cheats on their spouse. If you are in a bad marriage, get out, then you can do what you want, but until then, you owe it to you spouse and your own honor to remain faithful.
hmmm sex is not that important...cheating to me..would be placing someone else above me....not just sexually...
would you really end your marriage over cheating? seems that is a weak reason to dissolve a marriage....
Sounds like the question shoiuld be directed back at you, since you're asking.
Looking for justification?
I know there are a lot of people who say sex shouldn't be a priority in a marriage, but they are wrong. Sex is the glue that holds a marriage together.
If a spouse refuses to have sex, you need to find out why. It's not enough of a reason to say he/she doesn't feel like it. You shouldn't deny your spouse that physical closeness.
Worse comes to worse, you should at least let the spouse know that you will have to seek affection elsewhere.
If it's the glue that holds a marriage together, then what good will it do to seek affection elsewhere?
You make it sound like a business arrangement. "I'm sorry, but if you don't see things my way, I'll take my business elsewhere."
I would say intimacy, not exclusive to sex, is the glue that holds a marriage together. With holding intimacy is generally regarded as a measure of control or better, someone who is unable to express hostile emotions. It's a punishment.
Is the topic a simple yes or no, I would or would not cheat on a spouse or is it a discussion about may cause a spouse to have sex with someone outside the marriage?
