Do you think cheating is getting more accepted?

Now before you ask... i think cheating (in a relationship) is one of the most awful things any human being could do. The cheater was lucky to be in a relationship in the first place. But I'm asking this because it seems like to me in this modern decade cheating is being seen as okay/acceptable when it's not.

  • I think it depends on the situation. If their other is just using them for sex anyway, it doesn't really matter, since it's not a REAL relationship. If there's abuse, the victim needs someone to comfort them in a way they've almost forgot existed.

  • It's not that it's getting easier to get cheated on, that still hurts the same. But the idea of 'side chick' is more mainstream. Cheating is actually a lot less accepted now because in the past if your husband slept with other women you just took it... for the kids or traditional values or whatever. It's just something that will always be there, the way it's portrayed in the media changes, but on a personal level it will probably always hurt.

  • For me, even it's old or modern decade, cheating was never acceptable and never will.

    Honestly, I was in a relationship where in my ex boyfriend cheated not only once, not twice or thrice but a couple of times I lost count. It's normal for a girl in love to forgive, once, give a chance once. But it's true that if that cheater cheated on you twice and you accept him/her, it's already your fault because you also accepted the fact that he/she can do it again and again with your consent.

    We should be aware that we deserve more than that. We deserve to be respected. We should only give our trust to someone who deserve it. Let's not make them think that cheating is okay, because it's totally not!

    It's either, stay honest, stay loyal or stay away.

  • Facts: women who love too hard will forgive the cheater, making it seem okay. Guys forgive once. Thats only exception.
    Beyound that, no one in there right mind think its okay be or its normal to be cheated on. To be naive is ones womens weakness to be desperate is one mans enemy.
    Is it being more accepted. Mmm yeah it is. Celebs, YouTubers, twitch streamers, and all sorts of people who done it dont seem to thi k its big deal until karma hits the cheater.

  • I know others who would disagree with your first point, and I'd hope you're not trying to pass off your view on this matter as objective fact, as there are always two sides on every coin. One example being people who believe that a man can have as many wives as he pleases. And as a side note, cheating offers a sense of excitement, as well as freedom while not having the drawbacks of being single. It's not something that's done with pride, mind you

    • Thats great that it's not done with pride. And did i say "wow my opinion is fact? No i do not give two shits if it gives people excitement. Don't try to make something i say into something that it isn't.

  • Everything is becoming more acceptable. Nothing is "sacred" any more.
    We live in a society where traditional values are looked down on.

    If one person cheats on their partner, and the other is angry, it turns into "I'm not your property". Ignoring the fact that it's about, loving, honouring, and respecting your partner.

  • I don't get why cheating is seen as bad. Most people think of sex as a completely meaningless activity, which you can do with tons of strangers. If sex these days is comparable to shaking someone's hand (to most people) than why is cheating seen as bad?

    • 😂 you are just trolling right? Cheating isn't equal to sex. Cheating is abuse of your partners trust. If both are OK with sleeping with others it's not cheating.

    • Show All
    • It's only empty when you treat it that way. Besides the point though, it doesn't matter whether it's empty for you or not it's about your partner. Maybe try to see from their point of view sometimes? If it was empty for your partner you'd not be cheating, they wouldn't care. The problem as I said before is very simple. You need to be on the same page.

    • @german_of_steel well I'm a guy and barely any girls value sex these days but they'd still get upset if I cheated. That's my problem.

  • Well ill try to put it like this. While growing up and you meet more people and you and your friends change all the time your going to be exposed to more peoples lives and hear about bad things more often with more people you know. So either you think its more accepted or just seeing it more with more people even tho it could have always stayed the same

  • Weekend-relationships got trendy and causes a bigger danger of cheating since they aren't as serious and important as normal relationships between two people who didn't decide to be together just out of a mood. Since they became less serious they run in danger of cheating and this became pretty normal to us. So yes, it's getting more accepted.

  • My biggest problem with cheating isn't the sex. It's the dishonesty and lying, betraying of trust and hiding feelings. I wouldn't actually be so outwardly upset as just sad that we couldn't be honest with each other.
    I get it though, I've felt moments where I'd thought about how I'd lose control if I walked in on my partner cheating. Horrible thoughts. But now, thankfully, I'd just be sad that they lied so much. And end the relationship.
    Maybe that's the answer, the weight of cheating is less in the physical act, and more in the lying as how it's betrayal.

  • I travel with a co worker 6 months out of the year whom Im having an affair with in the last 3 months. Been in a 13 year marriage which we have fallen into just a friend/roommate zone but concentrate solely on the kids. The co worker is fine with the arrangement that we have. I want to separate but feel it will affect the kids more than its worth. Especially since 6 months I already have the on the road time with the co worker. Is an Open Relationship the answer?

    • I appreciate what you said. I completely get it too. You saving the kids from heart ache etc. You still get the sex you need. I don't blame you one bit. Happy for you.

  • Depends on the agreed upon conditions. I'm on an open relationship and we fuck who we please. But she still comes home to me, and I still come home to her. Sex with others isn't considered cheating to us but I know most are not like that.

  • It's more people have gotten numb to it and open relationships are more accepted personally I think monogamy is unrealistic. As I can't take a woman seriously when she says you're the only one I wanna have sex with. Give me a break

  • I don't think cheating is more accepted I just think people are more open about an hour days a lot of people don't want relationships they just want casual sex with no strings attached which to me is the worst thing ever that's a recipe for disaster a relationship is definitely the best route and if you're going to be in wondering you should be honest and upfront about what you feel and what it is you want and then that way people won't have to cheat because you can't fix a problem that you don't know exist. That's why people have to be honest and upfront about what they feel so that way if there is a problem your partner will know and they can do their very best to fix it or if they can don't let you know and you can go your Separate Ways

  • I don't think it's being more accepted now as much as it's being thought more of something that just happens (when it's not). Cheating is a vile act and horribly destructive to the other person.

  • If getting more common means being more accepted then yeah... I guess it is. I am not surprised if that's the case. The world is fucked up enough to be fairly honest here.

  • I think it's just American music culture that paints it that way. It's definitely not OK, either you are honest and both can have multiple partners or honest and you have each other. Maybe you are just hanging out with the wrong crowd.

  • Its not. However some people are pushed to the point where they feel trapped and are so mistreated they can't help it. Dont get me wromg thats still not right in anyway but they shouldn't be labelled to not be able to change.

  • Of course not! Cheating is a choice. We all know what's right and wrong, so, we should always be aware of our actions. Considering if your other mate will be affected, or will the relationship be affected.
