The sleep team: What does being unfaithful mean? Well, honestly, I believe it means different things to different people.
It probably is one of those personal topics best kept quiet. Not because of being ashamed, but because people can’t help themselves and judge.
There are lots of things that go on in a marriage that are not made public and, to some people, some of these secret issues might have been a deal breaker.
Being unfaithful is often viewed as a breach of trust being so intimate with someone other than your husband or wife. And from a neutral point of view, the sex would be different, it is with different people. And the sex would be easy due to the ‘wrong’ factor. Often it is not like each person hasn’t had sex with other people before the marriage/relationship. However, society sees it as the worst thing ever to happen to someone.
Having said all of this and even if the person someone cheats on is ‘cool’ about it; just like any shake-up there are consequences. These consequences are about change and not about what was right or wrong.
Life is full of change and if looked at right – mostly good changes.
So, if it happens to you – try and look at it from your own point of view and see if you can work with it like you might any other issue. If it happens to someone else, try and keep quiet and only give supporting comments.
