It has no bearing in reality or [email protected] T What world are you living in?Petraeus and others of his status/strata are all strong-willed and certainly not weak-minded individuals and they choose this disastrous course all the freaking time.
" Perhaps the question is, "What is the line of infidelity crossed at which point your relationship would not likely be restored?
"Speck said: Matthew "But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart." This is utter nonsense to use this definition out of a book to define what is unfaithful.
In the end that is however irrelevant, because men will seek actively sex only if what they get at home isn't worth the effort.
Note: sense of guilt sex is the ideal way to push a husband to cheat. Now there is a basic unfairness when a man is married with a woman of his age ... that has however nothing to do with cheating, rather with national security.
if you compound that with the wife being 20 years older and probably thinking she could say no to such a powerful man ... Ultimately every couple has a different understanding of what it means to be faithful and it is pointless (and perhaps immoral) to try to judge someone else's unfaithfulness to their spouse. One thing that I have learned, since being married, is that you can cheat on your spouse with more than just another person.
