Question What defines cheating?

Would you call a drunken kiss cheating? Or would you call full blown sex cheating?

I'd call cheating anything you'd have a hard time being honest about with your significant other.

Re: What defines cheating?

The best answer is what would YOUR PARTNER consider cheating. Everyone is different on what they consider cheating and it is up to the couple involved to set up what they feel are the boundaries for thier relationship.

Gotta agree w/the other two. My take: anything that would hurt your partner. And for me, that would include kissing, drunk or not.

Intimate kissing is definitely cheating. A friendly cheek kiss is obviously okay. Being drunk is no excuse to cheat, nor does it lessen one's responsibility. If you can't control yourself, don't drink.

This comment is interesting especially in light of the 2002 statistics on marriage which are:

-1 out of 2 marriges end in divorce, (58.7%) USA stat
-Females cheating on spouse has jumped 20% in 2 years
-Couples without children have a higher statistical advantage for a lasting relationship than couples with 2 or more kids
-Top 5 reasons for a split-up: communication, money, sex, children, in-laws
-Under 25, your chance of getting divorced is 10 times more likely than if you waited until 30

Still think love is eternal? still think that "knight in shining armor" is out there somewhere for you? still think cheating would never happen to you?

These stats are depressing!!....but I still believe in marrige!
Thought I would pass it along!

Re: What defines cheating?

I'd be upset if my boyfriend kissed another girl- drunk or not drunk....so I would have to say yes.
In my mind- there would have had to been something that led up to that kiss- flirting, etc---someone just does not walk up to someone and kiss them....so I would wonder what else was going on and probably be more upset about that then the kiss itself.

totally, man, i completely agree with muttley there. a drunken kiss is a kiss nonetheless. alcohol just makes people more comfortable with doing things that they really wanna do.

Re: What defines cheating?

I also think it's a personal matter. It differs for everyone, but I think anything that would leave your partner feeling betrayed would be cheating. For some it would be a kiss, for others the sky's the limit. It's all relative.

I totally agree with mutly44-anything you can't be honest about with your significant other!
