    I don't really want to grow out of it. I find it very useful, as in girls understand I won't go out with them and they ( if "they" exist) don't ask me out. It allows me to concentrate on working and studying.

    Nah, that one is explained by my love of scatology.

    From my perspective, if you're married and have exchanged vows with an expectation of exclusivity, then any sort of sexual or romantic affair with another person violates those vows, breaks that covenant, and will probably end the marriage.

    So, if by "forgive" you mean will I keep her, the answer is no.

    If by "forgive", you mean will I eventually get over the pain, no longer despise her or loathe the very sight of her, or wish her ill, yes.

    Unfortunately I have experience with this one.

    For me, it would depend. If I had been rejecting my husband emotionally and/or physically, I could see myself forgiving him. It would also depend on the extent to which he was unfaithful. Did he just kiss this other person? Or did he go all the way without a condom--putting me at risk? If he put me at risk, it wouldn't matter if I had emotionally or physically ignored him. I couldn't forgive his putting me at risk. Although I'm not sure I could forgive him if he had sex or oral sex with another woman. The thought of that repulses me, and I'm not sure I could ever get that image out of my head.
    Sex is just sex to me. I don't really care what Joshua does when I'm not around and I doubt he really cares what I do either. It's just sex. As long as my laundry is washed, folded, and put away and the loft stays clean, and my dry cleaning is picked up, I don't really have much other input into what he does while I am at work or we are apart.

    However, if I find out that his little toy on the side got a better birthday or christmas present than I got...well, then it's on.

    What?? You honestly dont mind if your boyfriend was having sex with some other guy? How about if you caught him? Dont you at least expect him to be faithful to you, and be yours only? When i love someone, i want them all to myself and expect them to be faithful to me as would i. I know its just sex but it means alot and i would be heartbroken if someone i loved had sex with someone else.

    Gay, is that shocking?
