    Very interesting. Thank you for your candidness.

    When you say "have sex," this includes sex other than intercourse (like oral sex)?

    I would have to say eventually but she would no longer be my significant other.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I hadn't thought of that option.

    I've always thought it counted. Never saw much of a moral distinction there.

    That really depends on whether or not you're okay with your girlfriend having sex with other men. I'm not the only one allowed. And it wasn't my idea.

    Ooops! My bad.

    But if it makes you feel better to be obnoxious about it, be my guest.

    Re: Would you forgive your significant other if he/she cheated on you?

    I've had it happen three times actually, to varying degree's.

    The first was with in high school. I had crushed over this girl for years. Was back in high school. She ended up going to the beach during her spring break with her family, meeting some guys, going up to their room and drinking, and gave one a blow job. Just couldn't get it out of my head (doubly so since that was farther than we had gone at the time....was a young inexeprienced guy at that point) and we broke it off.

    The second was with my first really long relationship (year and a half). The girl was a bit older than me, very experienced, and was my first time. She was a bit of a wild child (I knew this going into it) but I guess enjoyed finally actually trying to be with a "good guy" rather than trouble (for example her BF before me was double her age). She graduated a year ahead of me and ended up going to an all girls university that was near by our home. The common joke was "they recruit there" with the term BUGs/LUGs (bi/les until graduation) were common there, but she had convinced me nothing to worry about...

    ...about 6 months later she tells me she had been messing around with her friend on her hall for the past week.

    Now, at this ponit, I'm sure many guys would be going "ROCK! Threesome"...however, this was the relationship right after the last one I talked about (the current girl in question hated the other one on principle alone simply because she cheated on me....iiiirony) and I'm one of those helpless romantic types. So yeah, that one ended rather messy....well, messy and elongated (it was an on and off again, mostly sexually, thing for the next 2 to 3 years).

    My current girlfirend, who I've been with for about 4 years now, also had (I just have great luck don't I?). However, the circumstances for this one was different. We were doing a long distance thing at the time and had been for a number of months. It was at a point she was kind of doubting the relationship because of how difficult it was. It also helped that it was only making out. I knew it was her attempting to find a way to push me away, figuring it'd be easier to make me leave than to actually try and leave herself. It took a little while to forgive her for that (we spent a week apart not really talking as I thought it over) and for a long while she thankfully stayed away from the guy (it was a long time friend of hers), but it worked out in the end. We've had no such issue creep up over the past 2 years now that the distance has been removed and we're actually close together. If something happened again with him, or something major happened with someone else, it'd be over though.

    I think in general for me, a drunken kiss type thing I can excuse. Not if its repeated, and don't go hang out with the guy you did it with the next week, but in general that's something I can over look. However something more than that its not likely to stay serious.

    Depending on the circumstances, emotionally and /or physically ignored, then I would probably forgive her, I think. If it was just one of those things that happens, then no, I would have divorce papers drew-up immediately. Then I would bang her sisters and friends.

    It has never happened to the Good Reverend, and never would. Obviously.....
