    I like Don Henley's line "when you get down to the heart of the matter, I think it's about forgiveness even if you don't love me anymore," and Jesus's challenge "let him who is without sin cast the first stone." Points to ponder, especially for the more judgmental of us.

    I remember when I first heard the term "grass widow" to describe a divorced woman. My brother married one in the 1950's and it was a family scandal at the time. She had a child, a troubled one who eventually went to prison; my brother never really could reach him. Still, they stayed together until her death and he never even thought about straying. When trust is broken, it hardly ever heals and there are always consequences.

    Timely, isn't it?

    To put all this in stark terms, species vary relative to monogamy traits, and as liminal threads in Mother Nature's web-of-life, where evolution works towards preparing species for changing conditions, different behaviors creep into individuals of any species.


    Free to make my own potentially ill-formed decisions, I've formed the opinion that longer term well-being, where other compatibility issues aren't a serious problem, necessitates recognizing which head is making decisions

    I'm sorry guys, no offence intended , but there has to be some leeway here.

    Extenuating circumstances.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    Just to interject a lighter note my young son just told me the other day that he could remember five of the ten commandments off the top of his head. So he reeled them off for me:

    1. Don't lie
    2. Don't steal
    3. Don't cheat
    4. Don't murder
    5. Don't adult

    At least that last one is fairly easy.

    I guess I'm kind of in the Dan Savage school of thought here. Should one half of a relationship declare a unilateral end to the sexual component of a relationship, I find it hard to judge the party who wanted to continue a sexual relationship for doing what maybe needs to be done in order to stay sane without divorcing and finding a different partner. Sometimes a marriage is actually pretty good other than being sexless, so why throw that away? At the same time, though, a typical adult human being will require some sexual release--if such a person is married to someone who becomes asexual (for whatever reason) that asexuality simply cannot be imposed on the other person, and it's not reasonable to expect someone who isn't asexual to live a life without sex.

    I've known relationships where one party doesn't want to continue having sex with a spouse and, therefore, is willing to turn a blind eye to straying, so long as the straying is discrete. If one party to a relationship refuses to continue having sex with a spouse, I just don't see how that person thinks the spouse can be expected to remain celibate.

    Which is my long-winded way of saying, yes, there are sometimes extenuating circumstances.
    Wisdom is seldom boisterous.

    so long as... is discrete.
    that is a tough one to believe possible. I tried to hide it but the guilty look on R.P.'s... so I put a glove on to hide that, and it was noticed immediately. Then of course there are the long-term effects of repeated... uh... anyway, hair growing where it doesn't, and eventual blindness.
