    What's your opinion on infidelity? Do you think there are any circumstances in which it is excusable, or justified? Are there any reasons which would make infidelity not a heinous act?

    Can you name for me a positive result from adultery in which no one is emotionally harmed? Don't use hypothetical situations, just a positive aspect in the average case of adultery.

    There is no justification for adultery no more than there is a justification for slapping your spouse senseless for no apparent reason.

    That's not to say that marriages can't survive infidelity - they are just always radically changed by the act.

    Often, you hear a person say that he or she got "swept up" in an adulterous affair or that he or she "didn't expect to fall in love". Both these assertions are probably true from the point of view of adulterous mate but they are also completely preventable.

    People who fall asleep at the wheel and kill a family of four never intended to finish their night in the back of a police car and they never would have if they'd pulled into a rest stop and had a nap. ;)

    Not that I ever would but how could you slap a woman senseless. Wouldn't that be like trying to make water wetter?

    :eek:
    I don't think Mr. Snaps is a woman, Rock. :p


    On a more serious note, adultery and affairs are absolutely inexcusable. The end.
