I often write about infidelity in my stories (not that I agree with being unfaithful; but it does add drama to my stories). There are varying levels of cheating. Some see constant thoughts of a person other than your partner, others see conversations; some see a kiss, and I think pretty much everyone agrees that oral and actual intercourse is cheating! Of course, as we all know cheating happens in so many relationships and often leaves people broken-hearted and devastated. There are couples who have decided to have open relationships as a way to circumvent the inevitable belief that one or both will cheat eventually so let’s go ahead and put it on the table. (Or at least that’s my opinion on why open relationships exist). Can relationships truly be monogamous? Are we asking for too much to expect one partner for the rest of your life, assuming you are coupled or married young? Is there ever a time when infidelity is excusable? Is it ever okay to leave a spouse or a significant other because you believe you found the ‘one’?
