So Happy to See

I’m just so happy to see that, as of right now, only 2% of the voters felt that the other man/woman was “at fault” in the case of a .

I didn’t think that was going to be the case.   I’ve so frequently heard women call other women “homewreckers” and the like.  I thought, for sure, that there would be some people looking to place all of the responsibility squarely on their shoulders.

    Well the “other woman” certainly doesn’t help the situation, especially when she does it knowingly. But it’s ultimately the man (in my case since I’m a woman)’s fault if he cheats because he has the ability to do it or not to do it, and he’s the one that makes the conscious decision. In my opinion, even if the woman does something to drive the man away, they should talk things out together and/or break up. That way, no one gets cheated on. But that’s just me. I think some people just like “the thrill” of getting away with it, and others are just cold-hearted and could care less.

    I agree with Veka mostly. I mean, the ‘other woman’ should know better, because she certainly isn’t going to get anything positive from a guy who would cheat. It’s only going to end up hurting everyone involved. And if that’s her purpose than she has major issues to sort out.
    But I agree that it’s the one who cheats who is mostly respinsible. Maybe in some cases it’s about a ‘thrill’ but I think people who cheat are deeply selfish. Adults shouuld be able to dely gratification or go back and break up in an honest and open way. Selfishness and cowardness go hand in hand here.

    I’d imagine there are some people who like the thrill of getting away with it. And others who, in their mind, are doing nothing wrong. I’ve found that some people have an amazing capacity to rationalize all kinds of bad behavior.
