Is it EVER acceptable?
As in, on a boyfriend/girlfriend..
Not me, obviously, but I'm just gathering opinions.
Unless the circumstances are EXTREME.
Some guy is cheating on his wife and the mother of his children. With her. It made me ask myself questions.
I think i'd be fine with being cheated on as long as people were honest with me. And used protection if they went "all the way".
that's just good business practice
Seeing as people can never be bothered to read the rule book.
"You landed on the same square as me, I get to punch you square in the face and you're not allowed to defend yourself or cry else you lose."
Playing Monopoly with my gran rules.
and not just at monopoly. And it's very rarely a justified accussation, people just have difficulty accepting that I'm the best at everything
We're getting "90's Edition" Trivial Pursuit delivered here for Christmas in the next few days.
Guess who's going to be reading all the questions?
unless they're hot.
I'd happily be the 3rd party being used to cheat with, but if i was being cheated on i'd punch some people
and it wasn't a very nice feeling, even though I didn't know the guy : (
that might have been a nicer feeling
but i was lied to moderately, and he was german, so that was ok (y)
"acceptable" circumstances, then?
Although I'm not about to explain the ins-and-outs of my relationship history, I had a relationship that I found it impossible to escape from unless I cheated on him. It sounds like a cop-out, I know.
I have also cheated on someone because I was drunk, which is obviously not acceptable, and is just shit.
its a dreadful thing to do
can't honestly think of a time when cheating would be ok. If you're at the point where you are going to cheat, then you should do everyone a favour and get out of the relationship you are in, as you obviously don't want to be there
Judge_B gets it right in my opinion.
This. Once you or your partner have cheated, it's pretty much game over. Even if you stay together for the rest of your lives, it'll be a pretty unhappy co-existence.
Even if one of you is happy with it, the other one won't be. People can forgive, but they tend not to forget. The relationship may continue, but it aint ever gonna be the same again.
Lies and betrayals. Fruit covered nails. Electricity and lust.
My relationship is fine, despite both of us having drunkenly kissed other people. We are currently separated by 1000 miles. The rules are different.
Having said that, if he stuck his penis in some other girl, I would BREAK HIS FACE.
has it right again. I love my wife very much, but if she cheated on me once that would be it. It would hurt like hell, but the alternative is for me to become someone completely different, because I wouldn't have any trust in her. Living together would just become impossible for me
as fionapinkstars says, though, it's not a black-and-white situation. The rules are different depending on the people and circumstances.
...it probably also makes a difference that you're talking wives and we're probably talking much less serious relationships.
thought we were just talking about relationships in general? Plus I haven't been any different at any time in my life. I have been cheated on before, and anyone that has is no longer about. My life is better for it.
When I say no longer about, it's not like I killed them or anything
I'd take far more offence if my boyfriend were to have a sustained emotional attachment to someone, even if they never acted on it than if he stupidly drunkenly kissed someone.
I really don't think 'cheating' is such the black and white issue that it's always made out to be.
Plus, denying that humans will ever stop being attracted to anyone else but their partner is horribly naive.
That's why TRUST is such an important thing in a relationship. Look but don't touch, or you're both gonna end up hurt and alone.
RELATIONSHIPS ARE SO... RESTRICTIVE.
on the commander and thewarn, lets go and form our own No Cheating club. thewarn can make tea, I'll bring cakes, and commander can keep any unsavouries out. We can have codenames! And passwords!
he'll cheat on you both and then eat your babies!
You eat ONE baby and suddenly you're labelled a baby eater...
But, there are sometimes circumstances that make it understandable.
It all depends.
if you get yourself into a situation where you're going to cheat on someone, if you care about them at all you should talk it out with them first and break up. Or don't cheat on them.
cheat at scrabble, though. But then my girlfriend has a far larger voca... vocab... number of words in her head than I do
i sent him to his box, but i couldn't be angry at him for very long, he kept looking at me with that look he does when he feels bad that he has been cheating on me with my brother. mummy says it's natural for him to want to try out new things so that made me find another dog and he wont cheat on me because i am the cheater because he has a girlfriend, my nanny, but she understands dogs, so it is ok
and no, I don't have any good stories to do with this. Or indeed anything else
us another, yo_soy. I'll go put the kettle on...
Hmmm. That sounded funny in my head. I think I'm dying.
be The Hat for Bamos?

Is it a crypic clue? I like* crosswords
I can't think of any pictures that make me cry.
Shed a tear at a beer?
Maybe it could. I shall try it. I'd need one of those old school whistling ones though, not a new plastic affair.
Now THAT'S cheating!
Right up the spout.
You're in your ELEMENT!
I would find it hard to trust someone if they cheated on me.
I mean, it happens all the time. I've kissed someone when I've had a boyfriend, and I've kissed someone with a girlfriend a couple of times in my life. To my knowledge, I've never been cheated on, but I don't know. It's unforgivable (as in, I don't think I'd carry on a relationship with someone who cheated on me), but I would accept it.
If I am genuinely happy with someone/ in love with someone I have never even been tempted to cheat, and don't think I ever would be. Any time I've been involved in cheating, it's always been the end of one relationship/the start of a new one. I don't think you'd kiss someone else 'by mistake'
- it's a sign, isn't it?
is never acceptable. I've been on both sides of it and it's just wrong.
the tumultuous seas of bad love.
What IS wrong with me today?
Slightly twisted ankle?
on the way into work this morning.
I have notoriously weak ankles. My grandfather called them 'aristocratic'. He's dead now.
He was so sad about my weak ankles.
maybe you could get those metal cages round them like what broked legged people have
stick a sign on the outside saying "Do not feed the ankles"
into the cage and charge top whack!
ooooooooooooooooh the possibilities
exactly 'top whack' is.
that thewarn, he's nuthin' but a heartbreaker
has ever offered to cheat with me. Therefore I've never been tempted.
It's the lowest of the low.
