    It hasn't ever happened but if it did, it would be over at that point.
    I can forgive but I won't ever let it happen again. In my mind, one cheating occurrence destroys the bond and trust of a relationship.

    I'm pretty much 26 (my bday is in a few days) and me being that age and male I happen to have an appendage than constantly wants me to conquer all the women in existence.

    If I can control that, there is no reason why my wife can't control herself.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Why do people have the tendency to stray? Tell me if I'm wrong, but once you tell someone you love them, you can't just stop loving them, or you've been lying since the beginning. Thats why I'm 15, have never had a girlfriend, and will as soon as I find the right person. There's no need to hurt someone over a mistake....

    Don't take this the wrong way at all, but you just have alot of growing up to do.

    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    And you don't stop loving them. Just because someone strays doesn't mean that they stop loving the person that they stray from. Granted, they have violated the trust in that relationship, but I don't think it changes the amount of love. I think one of the main problems is that people automatically tie love and sex together, when they are really two separate things. Sex can be great on its own and love can be great on its own. When combined they enhance each other.

    It's not always a lie. Many people have a problem discerning the difference between lust and love. Lust is what happens over the first few months/years of a relationship. So they may really think they are in love.

    Love is something far deeper and doesn't come with all the romantic trappings that movies would lead one to believe. They typically describe lust.

    To me, love is hearing the wife taking a giant, gassy dump and just laughing about it.

    I know, and I'm willing to wait. Right now, I'm at Harvard Univ attending a Economics program under SSP. They don't want sex here, but they understand that there is no stopping it, so they just avoid the issue.... I am proud to say that I'm not gay, but I still haven't checked out any girls while I've been here . I feel when the time is right, it'll just happen you know? And if it doesn't, quite frankly, people have enough on their plates as it is.

    One thing I really hate about teenagers these days, is that they get together, then a week, or a month, or something, they break up and it's ugly. Forgive me for saying this, but people are waaaayyyyy to horny, and needy.

    Those are important character building experiences, though. It's silly to try and avoid them. As you get older you learn to appreciate them because they teach you incredibly valuable lessons about yourself.
