  • No I don't feel that makes her a bad mother those are two separate issues.

    That makes her unfaithful to the relationship however not a bad mother unless she is causing harm or neglect to the child(ren) involved because of the outside relationship.

  • Directly, no. But I do think it shows a poor example to her children of what a woman should do, and a lack of respect she should be paying to the father (presumably) of her children and her marriage vows.

  • YES!!! How can you say otherwise? It shows the mom has no respect for herself, her husband, and her kids!

  • Well what about a single parent family, isn't that sort of showing a bad example to the kids as well?

  • it shows that she has problems with her man. Case closed.

  • Well, considering that the unfaithful mother could be destroying the relationship with the child's daddy and causing the child's family to split....those kinds of things are difficult for children.

  • Can you add some details? I mean it's not a really good idea to do that. But "let he who is with out sin cast the first stone"
    You know it really depends on the situation. I mean cheating isn't a good thing period. Wether(<~Misspelled?) it makes you a bad mom or not is another thing. It's not exactly setting a good example for your child(ren).

  • I dont think it means the woman is a bad mom, but its defnitely not setting a god example.
