    It would be a deal breaker for me. If my partner cared so little about how much a betrayal such as this would hurt me emotionally then I feel that they are not someone I would want to be with. Life is to short to settle for someone that is willing to hurt you for their own selfish desires.

    Since my big thing is loyalty? No and they would be lucky if they remain living

    If you wish to be in something open? We can do that but you gotta talk about that from the start. I do not oppose open but the key word is open. You start doing stuff you not suppose to do and You cheat on me? I may not kill you but I will want to and we are done!

    How could any one cheat on Kali. When you have perfection, what more could you want?

    most definitely. if a marriage loses it's trust, honor, respect, and integrity; a certain wall
    is emotionally constructed between the parties. they can play nice for a lifetime afterwards,
    but the wall is still there, and everything has changed, whether they admit it or not.
    people today seem to have this notion that immorality is acceptable in moderation. it's
    why the world has went to $h!t, and why love has become more of a flighty "contemporary"
    game of charades today.

    Re: Is an affair a dealbreaker

    I would stay. It hasn't happened to me, (that I know of . . . hmmm. . .) but I would not turn my family inside out over what might have been a moment of weakness.

    Women tend to be emotionally involved before they get sexually involved. Men? Sex without emotion is no problem.

    That would be the issue for me. If I knew my wife loved another man, and had no love for me, that would make life difficult, but I would prefer to keep my family whole.

    Re: Is an affair a dealbreaker

    I'm not sure how I personally react in a hypothetical situation, but I would lean heavily towards yes.

    It is a breach of trust and loyalty and is deeply hurtful.

    However, sometimes people honestly learn from their mistakes and realize the importance of not repeating them, and thus deserve a 2nd chance.

    so I voted hot pockets

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Yes, dignty would take a beating, but I hope I would subordinate that to my family's well-being.
