  • No. Never. Period.
  • Nope..try as they may..there talkin' to a brick wall and my lawyer.
  • No. Never. A relationship needs to be a life long commitment. "Cheating" just hurts everybody and opens you up to diseases. Life is not some soap opera, if you get pregnant by another man, how would you explain it to either man? Divorce will cost you both monetarily and emotionally. It's also the breaking of a vow, assuming you are married. Does your word mean anything to you? This is what's wrong with Western Society, it's all about "me" and what feels good to "me". No sense of decency, no sense of propriety or responsiblity! God intended sex to be between life long partners of one man and one woman. The man that takes your virginity is the man you should live with the rest of your life, like it or not. If you don't then you open yourself to diseases, heart ache, and financial troubles! Mark 10:8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. 9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Matthew 5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
  • No... no, no, no... it's abominal, it's... it's... no, no... There are very, very few absolutes in this world with me - only two I've discovered so far... One is that rape is evil. The other is that cheating is too...
  • perhaps if your are locked up in prison and you are so lonely and just start kissing and touching another inmate because you feel so alone and isolated
  • No, get out of the relationship first. Never, ever is it okay.
  • No. Not in Gods book or mine.
  • No i think that if you don't like the person that you are with at the time and you are interested on someone else you should end the relationship first and then think of starting a new one.
  • I wouldn't go so far as to say it's JUSTIFIED, but I would understand in certain circumstances. If I were in a long distance relationship or one of us had to be away for a significant amount of time, I would understand being lonely enough to mess around with someone else. I would understand getting REALLY drunk and making a mistake. I would understand if one partner suddenly stopped being there for the other in a big way and they needed SOMEONE to fill that void. However, that does not mean these scenarios are always "understandable" or forgiveable. And it's NEVER justifiable to cheat more than once and without remorse. If someone's forgiven, it better have been a one time thing and they better feel like shit for having done it.
  • Recently several high ranking users admitted having sock puppets and they explained they only use their puppets for "good" things like to get around the point caps set on each user. They instantly regretted their admissions as I guess it occurred to them too late that they had just admitted to cheating their way to the top. These users refused to name their sock puppets when another user asked. They removed their answers from the question when it became apparent that not everybody thought they should be allowed to break the rules and have special privileges. So short answer.. No cheating is never justified you can try, but I'm willing to bet the people who are not cheating won't buy it. http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/351537
  • I cannot think of one reason why or how it could be. There are always other options...betraying a trust is a very dishonorable thing to do.
  • No. It is unethical to "have your cake and eat it too." If you feel the need to cheat, then you should not commit yourself to the relationship you are in. If you feel an emotional/physical attraction to someone other than your mate, you should take a break from the relationship, and explore other options as a single person. Then if indeed you feel you still love and want to be with your significant other, you can hope and pray that they will take you back!!
  • No. End one relationship before starting another. If you cannot end it, fix it. If you want to be with someone else, end it. Make a choice.
  • I think not. You either end up hurting someone who either doesn't deserve it or doesn't care, and if they don't care, then you get hurt.
  • Easy for many to say...how many here are in a sexless marriage with no affection or emotional support. I think there are justifications but one would never understand unless they're in this type of situation with few ways to get out.
  • It depends on the game. It's ALWAYS a game!
  • Nope never. Nothing is so bad that cheating is justified. If you are in a sexless or emotionally deprived relationship then I suggest you talk to your partner and try to work things out. If you feel there is no solution then leave don't cheat. It is the most heartbreaking thing anyone can do to a person they are supposed to love and care for and shows anything but love and caring for your partner.
  • can it be justified? no. can it be understandable? yes. i think it is a terrible mistake, probably the worst that a marriage could endure. and i don't know that i could ever get past a partner doing that to me. but i understand that people doing it feel it is justifiable, at least at the time. and as someone that makes plenty of mistakes, i can understand making bad choices based on frustrated emotions (although i never made THAT choice).
  • Thanks for you opinion however, it sounds like your partner was willing to listen and change or alter their behavior. When one spouse talks about it and tells the other what a problem it is but their partner is disinterested or unresponsive...not much you can do. Every situation is different and every marriage is also so I still say, yes...there are times when it is justified. As a human being, I need and deserve to be touched, held and given affection. To deny your spouse that is a form of abuse...it's called neglect.
  • Does hurting yourself because someone else hurt you make sense.You are the one that PAYS by losing your own self respect.
  • No, because in the final analysis, it is a matter of respect. You don't cheat or lie to someone that you have respect for.
  • There is never a justification for cheating. If you're not happy then get out. Oh, that's right most people who cheat are in good marriages with people who would do anything for them and have no real intentions of every leaving if they can have their cake and eat it too. They're just to selfish and immature to keep it in their pants.
  • no, or it wouldn't be cheating
  • It depends upon every mind to jsutify it. whether he is right in his decision and clear cut in his life
  • No... never!
  • nope. You should work out your problems with one person before dragging them into bed with another.
  • No, but it can be. if somenody's really hurt and left aside, then he might cheat. We are all humans and we all make mistakes when we feel hurt and insecure. Now about sleeping around or just for fun... That sucks and is for puss*ies. People like that are bad people and I don't even like to talk to them.
  • People have different definitions of cheating as we all know. But I think the only time it can ever be justified is if the other is completely and totally closed off. If one of them just shuts down altogether for no reason, refuses to have sex, and will not budge. I'm not saying sex is the 'the' most important part of a relationship/marriage, but it certainly is a big part of it, whether you acknowledge that or not. You shouldn't marry someone who isn't on the same sexual level as you are, because it will only cause problems down the road. Sex should be expected from the other person (how much one likes varies of course), it's a responsibility each of you have as part of a couple. Now there are many different scenarios concerning this, and I certainly don't agree with someone diving between someone else's legs the second things get rough or uneven in their own bedroom. Sex in a relationship can take a lot of work and there's nothing wrong with that. But after much of that work, effort, attempts, and open minds (or closed with some people), then what does one expect? If you totally shut down/shut the other person out sexually, you're putting them in a figurative prison. Sex is a right, not just a luxury (unless of course you have a couple who are both waiting until marriage, the point is consensuality). A lot of marriages dissolve because of sex, and some specifically I've known because the other wasn't open at all to their partner's needs/fetishes. In regards to fetishes, it's almost born within you, and if you're not hurting each other or others, why don't you just indulge it? It'll save a lot of grief down the road with witholding it. Of course there's compromise with it, but bottom line, I only think it's justified when the other person is completely unreasonable. (and on an end note, couples needs to communicate with each other in a complete open manner when it comes to sex; don't just run off to a hooker to get a fetish indulge because you think your partner might react negatively - talk to them first and you deserve an open mind for it)
  • Well, it depends what you consider CHEATING! My wife and i married because we love each other not because we want to exclusivly have sex with each other, but because we want to be with each other for our lives!
  • Not at all. If you dont have the self control to be away from someone for very long, then i can only imagine how she's gonna be when the husband (most likely) is at work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. Never justifiable, or right. It's gross.
  • Yeah if you are in Vegas!
  • Um, no.
  • If you're talking about in school, games, sports, or the like, YES: when a significant portion of others are undeniably cheating and getting away with it, and the people charged with enforcing the rules are refusing to do so. There is no reason to hamstring oneself by "playing by the rules" when the rules are clearly not in effect, respected, or being enforced. BUT the objective in so cheating is ultimately to teach others that they have to play by the rules if they want you to. It's called "tit for tat", and it's the only tactic that consistently produces the desired change in ones opponents' behavior, in games, sports, wars, business, politics and life. If you're talking about cheating on your spouse, I'm sure we can all think of ridiculously extreme and improbable situations where an act of sexual infidelity is in fact an act of marital fidielity: e.g., sleeping with an SS officer to get your husband or child out of Auschwitz. The question is, is it ever justified to betray the spirit and intent of the marriage covenant in such a way as to cause ones spouse to feel betrayed (if they knew): and the answer is, no. If you're talking about cheating on your GF or BF, well then it's an absurd question: there is no covenant/contract to violate.
  • It should never happen. It is likely to hurt someone.
  • When you cheat on your partner and lie about it you are stealing from them. They continue to operate under the impression that you are who they think you are. You steal from them the right to know who you really are and to decide if the relationship is what they want. A cheater is not only a cheater they are a thief and a lier as well. Since this is their true character the other person in the relationship has a right to know to protect themselves in the future.
  • Nope! If a person has to seek sex elsewhere they at least owe the partner notification. Take the consequences. Otherwise they are not just a cheat but a coward and very likely a weapon of biological warfare.
  • NO way
  • No, I don't think so.
