Damn, and all this time I thought that what I was doing was wrong. Go figure.
I've heard people say the above statement before and, apparently, there are quite a few people that actually believe in it. I don't.
I have cheated and I have been cheated on and in both cases the person that cheated was wrong even though there was no marriage license involved.
When a couple sits down and decides to maintain a monogamous relationship, it is not fair for one of them to not keep up with the end of the agreement. Most relationships are made with the expectation that neither party will go outside of the relationship for mental, sexual, physical or emotional stimulation. A relationship should be built on trust, loyalty and communication. If someone feels that they have to go to an outside source because there is something in the relationship that is lacking, then that person should end the relationship. Staying in a relationship with someone that believes you are being faithful and you aren't is not only unfair but it's very deceiving.
People that believe that they can stop cheating once they get married are lying to themselves. The same reason that caused you to cheat will still be there when you take your vows and sign the papers therefore marriage will not make you stop cheating.
So, do you think that cheating isn't really cheating unless you are married?
