  • pwfaith I can't help it if you don't understand the error in logic you committed nor the fact you don't understand what infer means either. I was not attempting to give a definition for cheating. I was giving a line of reasoning for why I think the above situation is not cheating. To recap:

    Cheating infers deceit and requires lying. I agree that cheating is wrong. As the above example does not contain lying or deceit it is not cheating and therefore is not wrong as per my POV..

  • This is a tricky one! I would still say regardless as to whether its "ok" with him or not that once you step out on him with ANYONE of ANY gender that yes it's still cheating. Your not in bed with him your in bed with someone else and it is still adultry. But then again you could do your thing and repent later for it too if it's truely ok w/ your husband lol.

  • Adultery is defined as "Voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and a partner other than the lawful spouse" It doesn't matter if the partner is male or female, if it is intercourse between you (a married person) and them (someone other than your spouse) it's adultery and wrong according to the Bible. It really doesn't matter if hubby oks it or not. Scripture says ONE woman and ONE man - not ONE woman, ONE man and his/her mistress on the side. Would you be ok with your husband having a girlfriend on the side? Don't answer that b/c it doesn't matter, it's still cheating and outside of God's ordained way for a married couple to be.

    Not if you're a Christian, well you can but you should never (as a Christian) sin simply b/c you know you can repent later for it. That's wrong. God knows the heart.
