What do you think about infidelity?
I honestly think it’s a bad thing to do, but most of the time, people have their reasons, and it can either help or hurt a relationship depending upon the situation and the temperaments of the two partners involved. If you’re feeling unhappy in a relationship for any reason whatsoever, I personally believe that it’s best to talk to your partner about your feelings and go on a break before you decide to become intimate with anyone else, but sometimes relationships aren’t open enough for that kind of communication, which is why many people end up cheating on their partners.
However, I don’t think people are “bad people” if they cheat on their partner. It happens more often than you think, and it doesn’t make them a bad or immoral person. It just makes them human with flaws, just like everyone else. But it can either break a relationship down, letting both partners know that perhaps a different route is best for the both of them, or it can actually help a relationship, by letting the cheating partner realize that they simply don’t feel the same way for others as they do for their current partner. It sends them back into being faithful, in a way, by making them realize how good they have it and not to take advantage of their partner’s kindness or caring nature.
One of my boy friend actually told me last night that he once cheated on his girlfriend and his girlfriend once cheated on him, but both times it made them realize how much they truly do love each other because they had a weak moment and collapsed, and wound up crawling back to one another. And I think it was so human of him to admit something so raw as that because it’s so true, and most people in society and in the media automatically label infidelity as something extremely wrong and sinful when really it’s just a life experience.
