    I feel adultery is always understandable, but rarely justifiable. My only opinion on it, outside of case-by-case analyses.

    You can think about it from both sides but you can only do either/or.
    I was fighting with temptation but I didn't want to win.
    A man like me don't like to see temptation caving in.

    leaving isn't always so straight forward.
    Kids... the division (or loss) of all of one's assets... after attorney fees, court fees... alimony, palimony, child support.

    There are a lot of examples in literature and history of long-term and successful adulteries. In some religious contexts (sibling marriage in ancient Egypt comes to mind) the actual marriage seems to entail adulterous relationships. In these contexts adultery does seem to have a basically aristocratic bent. In class situations where marriage is decidedly more than romantic, where it is often family duty, adultery ends up with a sort of different spin, even if it's still a mortal sin. History has a lot of famous bastards, in these known cases it is generally the father who's adulterous. Apparently when it's the mother, the child's birth circumstances are often kept incognito. I'm assuming that many, many modern adulteries are also, in their own way, successful.

    All good reasons to consider not cheating in the first place, if personal integrity is meaningless.

    adultery makes for good horror and thriller stories. i like stephen king's "secret window". johhny depp plays that role well in the movie.

    I've known couples who married for reasons other than passion where one or both turned a blind eye to the other's dalliances. Who am I to judge if they're happy? I have a friend who I am about 90% sure goes to swingers clubs with his totally on-board with it wife. Is it adultery if they do it together?

    People are free to sort their relationships out themselves. If I don't like how someone else's marriage looks, then I can be glad it's not mine.

    I'm happy with InstituteWoman. That doesn't mean I don't have some libidinous desires to get busy with other women, it just means (for our marriage) that I don't. I'm also pretty sure that if one of us slipped, we could get by it. That works for us. It doesn't have to work for anyone else.

    There's a difference between an open marriage and adultery. In an open marriage, both partners understand and agree to having other partners, under various circumstances. An adulterous affair means one is hiding things from the other, breaking the agreement they made to be monogamous.

    The statutes I've reviewed make no provision for permission and neither do the definitions. It's adultery for sure if the woman is married, usually if the man is, nothing mentioned about same sex adultery. Doesn't matter who knows or agrees.
