Is Cheating the New Norm?

13 Nov

If you want to get people all worked up you can talk about sex, politics or religion. If you want to get people all worked in a way that hits home, you bring up the topic of infidelity. Of course nobody wants to talk about cheating because, well because it is about the worst thing you can do in a relationship. It destroys trust, ruins intimacy and is often the final straw that leads to divorce or break up. But, is cheating become…. normal?

An ABC news study found that 19 percent of women and 23 percent of men admit to cheating. A Fox news special found that 70% of married men cheated and that about 25% of divorces are directly attributed to infidelity. You can even go to websites designed to help people have “discrete affairs.”

Not to mention the fact that every other week you hear about celebrity affairs and similar drama. Right now affairs are front and center thanks to CIA Director David H. Petraeus and his very public indiscretions! While he faces some severe consequences due to the nature of his work, plenty of other public figures have lost little due to their cheating ways. (Think Tiger Woods, who lost some money but kept his career and earning power in spite of his massive list of affairs)

So, do you think that cheating is becoming normal? Do you know of a single relationship that hasn’t faced a problem related to cheating or “close calls?” Tell us what you think!

    I hope not but I think it’s probably true! Is it always a deal breaker? prob not but I think it depends on the situation. I don’t like people getting rewarded for it, kind of think there should be some price to pay for being untrue!

      Cheaters are immature. They won’t stop until they grow up. What the new norm is now is just trying to get laid w/o any real effort on relationships. Thanks to sluts, whores, and ugly feminists who wanted equal rights, which they never will get, the rest of us won’t ever be able to get married!

    Reading your idiotic reply, you have more than “sluts, whores and ugly feminists” to blame for why no one will marry you. Good grief.
