I’ve long suspected that married and unmarried people have somewhat different views on cheating: I personally have a “zero tolerance” policy, but most of my married friends (who aren’t Amber) seem to be more . . . flexible, more willing to consider circumstances, understand that there may be enough blame to go around, and on and on. Personally, I’m not one to compromise on something this important to me.
Now don’t get the wrong idea, I’m not sitting around imagining my spouse cheating before I’ve even met the lucky man . . . it’s much more fun to imagine other things we’d do together (and I mean things like late night talks, dinner, sharing, traveling, so get your minds out of the gutter!).
Then not too long ago I stumbled across a four variable personality test to see which Buffy character I’m most like. Yeppers, pathetic. That’s me. Anyway, I took this test (and let me just warn you that it is LONG, pack a lunch if you plan to take it), and found out who I most resemble personality-wise (and no, I’m not saying, though I may whisper it in Tally’s ear).
One of the questions got me thinking about this cheating question, wondering about marrieds and singles and how they view it, if a previous divorce makes a difference in one’s view . . . you know, just generally curious. We’ve all seen Kathy Lee Gifford go through it and stand by her man; ditto Senator Clinton, and it looks painful and awful to stay. But then we’ve seen marriages crumble because of infidelity, and it looks painful and awful to divorce.
Okay, so here’s the “big” question for the day:
Your spouse has been cheating on you. If you never find out, you will enjoy a lengthy marriage in your ignorant bliss. If you find out, you will go through a painful divorce. You would rather…
