    when you marry someone, usually you exchange vows. I would say those are the 'boundaries' until such time as the two of you explicitly change them in mutual agreement.

    as for whether or not it's cheating to seek some form of sexual fulfillment from others and to give it to them in return outside of your marriage...

    I would say certainly he was unfaithful in his heart.

    Agreed, it depends upon what the spouse/partner thinks. To me, cheating is a physical relationship.

    There is also such a thing as the "emotional affair." No physical contact, but the damage can be just as real and difficult to overcome.

    Re: Is cyber sex/sexting "cheating"

    It really depends to me. Is it cheating per se? I don't think so, primarily because we are talking about no physical contact, and they didn't even know each others' names. That said, it is still something that would get to me and I would be very angry at my wife if she did something like this. But would I consider it to be less unfaithful than all out physical cheating ie sex/dating/whatever? Absolutely. By a long shot.

    My husband and I defined that we would feel betrayed if the other so much as kissed someone else. So I was completely blindsided when I found out he was having cyber sex. A man can have cyber sex with his wife. So him going elsewhere shouldn't be necessary. Unless, you know; he's straying.

    I guess the question becomes how much broken trust is too much? What qualifies as betrayal?

    The bond between man and wife isn't just physical, but emotional as well. Making that kind of emotional or physical bond with someone else is cheating. Don't you think?

    So if you found out that your wife couldn't stop thinking about another guy, and she was always chatting with him on IM or phone, and sharing things she doesn't tell you anymore, it's okay because it's not physical?
