    The only reason in a marriage that isn't open ended on both sides to allow someone to wonder is to have the upper advantage of being able to say you are the victim when you decide to make a break for it and wonder your own self.:)

    Her point was that the more off-limits something is, the more tempting it is. She's pretty smart actually, because the more free a man feels to wander, the less likely he will. Trust me. I've been on the side of snooping, questioning, accusing and I've been on the side of giving them a pass. And the relationships where I gave them a pass were much more open and trusting, and much better than the others. I'm sure there are plenty of women who have plenty of names for me, but the basic fact is she's right. But, different strokes for different folks. If you're one of those women like Jackie Christie who has to follow your man around and keep him away from all women to make sure that he's faithful, don't bother criticizing me because THAT is a relationship I would NEVER want to have!

    His wife is right -- it isn't cheating if she knows and approves. In fact, if you look at porn without telling your spouse you are cheating more than this guy would be if he were sleeping around with permission. Cheating is not a function of the act, it's a function of lack of honesty in a marriage. Maybe instead of feigning outrage for the relationship of two marginally newsworthy others, we should figure out what in our own life makes us feel angry about something so trivial.

    This gives new meaning to the maxim: From Russia with LOVE.
    Further, I wonder if this is all part of being liberated Russians, having been shackled by the Commies for years. Come to think of it, I wonder if her permission for Andrei is also a justification for her to sleep around too...hmmm...

    What a terrible example to set for the youth of this community who look to athletes as role models. There was a time in this Country when athletes actually acted like role models and promoted positive values such as chastity, fidelity, loyalty, and faithfulness. It is distressing that modern athletes now promote adultery, immorality, and outrageous behavior. It is no wonder our society is degenerating.

    I think cheating it is not, but adultery? Yes.

    This is from years ago, why is it suddenly back on the home page again?

    And for the record, whether his wife condones it or not, and despite what she says it is, it's still cheating.

    She's so open now... It won't last. Having lived in a neighborhood of "swingers" I can say that's a great way to absolutely ruin your marriage, destroy the lives of your children, and decimate the peace of the neighborhood you live in... When I think of the nonsense us traditional folks had to endure to pick up the slack for so much of the mischief, I'm So glad I moved from that state to Utah.
