Would you consider this cheating?

I have a cousin who found her husband on dating sites looking for other women and was sending them messages, she asked me what I would do and I told her I would leave because if you don't feel secure as it is in your marriage, it's not healthy and plus I think what he did was wrong considering she does ALOT for her "mama boy" husband. I told my DH what happened and he said that, that is not cheating, it's wrong but not considered cheating. I think it's cheating, what do you think? Did I give her the wrong advice?

men have a tendancy to not believe in "emotional" affairs. my dh says if no contact, it isnt cheating. I say it is....

oh yes imo it diffently is cheating, i know without a doubt that dh feels the same way too. But if it were me I'd stay and try to work it out first and get back what was lost. But only she knows what she can and cannot handle. To each their own i guess... I would have told to follow her heart and do what she feels she should do... But that's just my take on it all... To each their own i guess...

 My dh would consider that cheating and I do as well. An emotional affair is just as bad if not worse than an affair that is just sex.

Depends on the content of the message. If its sexual then yes it's cheating. If not, no it's not cheating but it is still extra inappropriate.

Even if its not considered cheating what he is doing will lead to cheating.  I wouldn't want him he is clearly looking for another woman for what ever reason.  Dh and i both agree cheating is cheating emotional or physical their both wrong if its not done with your spouse.

I don't think that's cheating, but it does mean that he's not interested in his marriage any longer.

I agree with her. It could lead to other things, so shouldn't be done at all.
