  • I define cheating as having sex, cyber sex, sex texts, and emotional entanglements with someone other than your spouse.

    Answer by MizLee at 1:23 PM on Jan. 6, 2011

  • All of the above.

  • For me it would be emotional or physical encounters, either one is wrong in my book.

  • If masturbation was cheating...well I would be the bad one in our relationship. Anyway...I agree with Mrs.DAP. Anything that is hidden is considered cheating in my book.

  • Anything that the other feels the need to "HIDE", is cheating.

    Masturbation is a VERY normal sexual thing for both male and female.

    Answer by MrsDAP at 12:58 PM on Jan. 6, 2011

  • Any physical, sexual encounter.

    Emotional adultery? Really? *eye roll*

  • When you are doing thinks to or with others, that you should be doing with your partner.
    Talking about your relationship with others...No
    Flirting can lead to alot of problems, especially if the person your flirting with misunderstands your flirting.
    Porn i would do with my spouse, watching them alone too much may indicate a problem along with mastrirbating.
    And of course the physical act is definitely forbidden!

  • I agree. Masturbating should not be in that catagory.

    Answer by 1happyeverafter at 1:22 PM on Jan. 6, 2011

  • physical or emotional feelings towards another.

  • sneaking around=cheating for me and my hubby...I really dont care if he watches porn and takes care of himself whem i am not there to help...but if I walked in while he was doing it and he got way defensive shut if off and tried to hide it I would wonder why and probably assume that it happens an unhealthy amount...if he talks to an old female friend no big...but if he is buisy erasing txts and sneeking away when the phone rings then I would be concerned that something more than chatin was happening there...its all about honesty and trust
