    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?

    An odd term actually. It is supposed to be a crime yet it starts with the word 'adult'. A mixed message word IMHO.

    It's so easy to judge others Blade but life happens and it's a bitch sometimes.

    I enjoy judging others myself. What is the point of having standards if you can't apply them? Besides if you assess someone as 'unworthy' and get rid of them it reduces the amount of time when your life will be a bitch.

    well, adultery isn't really a "crime", but it should be, imo. the theft of someone's heart is a far more heinous act than
    simply the theft of their money.

    I just used the term 'crime' for lack of a better word though in many jurisdictions it certainly is as well as being a justification in petition for divorce.

    in any case if you judge an adulterer as 'bad news' and shun them it is bound to enhance the quality of your own life.

    I completely disagree with this statement. First we judge people all the time. We are only what our values are, while we may not always agree exactly what those values are we will normally only associate with those who have similar values. If you look at the forum membership and who hangs out where and who is buddies with who, it is self evident. While it is possible to respect someone with opposing values and priorities it is impossible to be best buds with someone you think is a dirt bag who can't be trusted. All of that process is a form of judging we all do it everyday, this is why the site has a number of banned members, I can think of no instance in which that process happened that it was not a long and difficult process. I can not think of a single time that I read someone's words here and just wrote them off never to respond to any of their posts anymore. I would not call that process easy.

    Life does not just happen. Maybe this is just my perspective but everyday I make choices that represent who I am and what I value. Each new day gives me a chance to be whoever I want to be. It is not random, it is not by mistake.

    Each new day is no different than the quick reply box at the bottom of each post. You can leave it blank, or you can put in a response. The response represents who you are and what you think, each time you do that you are opening yourself up to rejection or criticism, or the chance to make a new friend or gain the respect of the others here.


    If life just happens then you could theoretically just hit random keys on the key board and it would represent your thoughts and who you were.

    Dither pardon me disagreeing with you to this extent, your words which I take to heart caught me in this fashion...Bob

    Adultery is always going to be around. It's been around since the first marriage - whether you believe that's Adam and Eve or homo sapiens 1 and homo sapiens 2 is irrelevant - What I am shocked by is how inconsequential and rather accepted it has become. 10, 20 years ago, if a person had committed adultery, it was huge. You were shunned by your family, it was in the press for weeks (if you were famous or a politician), and your life was really never the same afterwards. A lot of people felt hurt. Nowadays, it's considered a way to spice up your marriage. At best, it's considered sad but human; simply a common part of a midlife-crisis, destined to happen in longer-lasting marriages, especially if they aren't as romantic or eager as they were on the honeymoon. At worst, it's applauded. I swear, a director or someone involved with Orange is the New Black left her husband abruptly, in order to be with another woman, and the FB comments were nothing but praise... really!? I don't think it's scary that the issue exists. I think it's scary that in little more than a decade, a "serious, crushing marital issue" turned into an "applaud-able life choice that's just human or natural"...

    Makes you realise how boring Adam was if Eve had to hold a conversation with a snake.
