  • No respect, no. I would not want to associate myself with such a person. I can only respect people who do that if they weren't aware of the circumstances, but since you specifically stated that they did it knowingly, I have to go with B.

    I think there are two typical types of people who help other people cheat. 1) They are home wreckers. They either just enjoy creating drama and disaster wherever they go, or they're so selfish that they simply have to get the person they want without caring that this person is already taken. These are bad personality traits that might even affect their entire behavior. Who's to say that people who are like this won't treat their friends and family in the same, selfish way? And 2), they are people who claim that they were just "too weak to be able to resist". This is also a very bad personality trait. It makes me think that they'll flake out of just about anything if a better opportunity somehow emerges, possibly making them look like pure backstabbers in the process.

    Either way, I have a hard time trusting people who are like this. No, nobody's perfect and we all have our baggage of mistakes, but personally, cheating or knowingly helping someone to cheat are deal breakers to me, and I don't wish to befriend or keep in touch such people.

  • They're both to blame - but sometimes the "other person" doesn't know the first person is married.

  • F*** no... that person is a d***... be they man or woman, they should suffer for it -_- it's bullsh*t that people think those people aren't responsible. They are. They are responsible to at least ask and learn about the person they are f***ing to make sure they aren't helping them cheat. If they do ask and that person lies to them, then that's a little less on them, but still they hold culpability. It's really stupid how much our society begins to think that responsibility and culpability are so narrow. It's often a wide array that are to blame.

    But ya, awhile ago I asked a question similar to this

    were some interesting responses.

  • hell no... as you said, they KNOWINGLY do this, and its absolutely terrible...

    a weak man or womans excuse is 'if I get asked for sex ofcourse ill give it. how can I possibly say no?!'

    well it is possible...[CRAZY BUT TRUE lol]

    if someone has dignity and respect towards others AND themselves, they would never allow such a terrible thing to happen that could easily destroy a relationship that was founded upon many years of love and, well... commitment=/

  • Generally no, but it does kind of depend on the circumstances. Clearly it's always wrong but at the same time stuff happens. What if you were dating someone for ten years and you two break up, they get into another relationship and in a moment of weakness you two hook up because you still have feelings for one another. It's wrong yes, but it doesn't make you a bad person, it makes you human and humans make mistakes. So I voted C for that reason.

  • I respect them as I respect any other person but that's not someone that id necessarily want to date. I try not to judge because I don't know the reasoning they had or where they were in their lives that would cause them to do that.

  • No, I usually lose respect for people when I learn of such things.

    Ultimately, they're not trustworthy, so I try to keep my distance. Same with the cheaters.

    These people are usually all drama and complete liars... who can respect that?
