Shout-Out to the Non-Cheaters

I’d just like to give a shout-out to all the people who *don’t* cheat on their spouses/partners. And to those who demonstrate the integrity and emotional intelligence to end things before getting physically involved with someone new. Thanks for being responsible and respecting everyone involved (including yourself)!

    I’ve thought about cheating

      Thinking about it and doing it are fortunately nowhere near the same.

      OP, a whole post dedicated to not cheating, but turns out thinking about cheating is ok?

      That is in the top 10 commandments

      OP
      Thinking about in what sense? Fantasizing? Or like, planning it in real life? Neither of those things is the same as actually cheating. How would you argue they are?

      You're assuming the 10 commandments are even worth anything (systemically). Half of Christianity is shaming humans into thinking they can't live a good life on their own.

      Thoughts are just thoughts.

      Thoughts lead to lust
      Lust leads to late night booty calls
      Booty calls leads to 😏 the dark side

    I have never cheated ... and expect the same from my partner ... but in today’s world it’s too much to ask for ....

      OP
      Why is it too much to ask? If you’re finished with your current squeeze, end the relationship, make it clear. Then go for it. No need for deception.

      No, we're Indian or Asian
      Jan 11
    • Huh. Maybe that's specific to a geographic area. I know lots of Asian folks and I can only think of one that's not in a serious relationship. Come to Minnesota I guess.

      Oh brother, there are like eleventeen billion reasons why people do this, not to mention that cheating is a made up, negative construct invented by our society to shame or worse others. In the animal kingdom it's called ... nothing ... because some can and some can't do this. Is it like the first time it ever happened? If so, you're not out there enough experiencing life.

      OP
      Thankfully, this isn’t about my own personal circumstances. And yes, obviously cheating can be an evolutionary strategy for some. But it is a strategy, and it is a choice (or, perhaps, a choice to allow an impulse). Some choose to cheat, some don’t; there is variation.

      The below article is relevant:
      https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/patterns-genetic-activity-may-play-role-animal-monogamy-180971192/

      TLDR; maybe fidelity has evolutionary benefits as well.

    • New stuY17
      I think it's overthinking. Some people will cheat while others won't. All of that is circumstantial and dependent on multum of variables. A lot of "evolved" people don't stress this as they come to respect their partners enough to allow them to do as they please. Cheating is a sister term of marriage that is a sister term of ownership which throughout history usually ment the woman would be stoned to death and the man would have to do something inconsequential as punishment.

      I thought OP was virtuous.
      Maybe only completed the first part and still looking for the side chick 💃

    I've never cheated, but can hardly count myself as virtuous, because the opportunity to cheat has never arisen. Good thing my wife loves me!

      OP
      This trope implies that the sound from the tree is never heard. But, as so many current events indicate, the sound may end up appearing later.

    For those who cheated, did the person you cheated WITH know that you're cheating or not?

    Agree with the general sentiment of your post. But would like to point out that physical relationship outside of the relationship isn't always cheating. Check up open and polyamorous relationships 😄
    You might want to technically correct your post.

    • Amazon cg57v99a
      OP
      I considered them in the post. If it’s an open/polyamorous relationship, then it’s not cheating. All depends on the scope and expectations of the relationship.

      Ok it appeared that you were putting all extra- relationship sexuality in one box.

    You just defined what cheating is for all of the population. Which might not even be accurate. But anyway.
