I think that cheating is wrong. I understand that in many situations there are extenuating circumstances, things that may happen to make you unhappy with your mate or unhappy in your relationship. I also understand that people outside of a relationship can never know the whole story, they can never understand what goes on behind closed doors. However, I truly believe that the right and brave thing to do is to tell your mate before entering into another relationship (emotional or physical).
The reason that I find it so difficult to talk about this subject is because, sadly, it has become so common place. So many people do it! People that I care about, people that I respect and people that I would never have thought capable of such deception. Part of me tries to keep my mouth shut as tightly as possible, not passing judgement (because what would that accomplish?) but the other part shouts inside my head that what they are doing is wrong and hurtful. I have never been cheated on before but I can only imagine the pain of being decieved by the one person that you are supposed to be able to trust the most.
I urge you out there in cyberland to think about your actions, to be strong and brave....yes, telling the truth is going to be painful and unpleasant but don't you think it's worth it to keep your honour in tact?
