The only thing that pisses me off more than those arguments now is the "If someone cheats they must not be getting something they need at home" argument. You would think that people have no control over their mouths or their zippers.
Thank God that time passes and views change.
It is true. He or she is NOT getting something at home. But it's the cheater's responsibility to work within the relationship to get what he or she needs. If that's impossible, then they're with the wrong person. There are no passives in a true relationship.
All I know is that if you are able to have an "open" relationship, or cheat on your S.O., then you either aren't ready for a relationship, or are with the wrong person.
Absolutely 100 % correct. Soul mates satiate each other. There is no need for outside "assistance."
This "It's men's nature to cheat" is utter bullsh*t. We aren't pack animals, we're human.
Another argument I've heard is "Intelligent people make their own rules about sex." Incorrect. Multiple partners is a cop out for not admitting the person you're with isn't the one that is right. These so called "intelligent people" are simply making justifications to rationalize their behavior.
For the original topic, it's good to know that governments are starting to see that forced sex within a marriage is still rape.
