Cheating?

What do you consider cheating? At what point is that line crossed, in your mind? If your SO considers something cheating that you necessarily, may not, do you adhere to those standards?

My hubby and are recovering to what I considered cheating and he did not, yet he labeled it as cheating because I did and trying to repair what was broken. Just curious how your relationships operate.

Anything that your SO wouldn't approve of. If you wouldn't do it in front of them, don't do it behind their back

We laid out what we each thought was cheating and came to an agreement early in our relationship.

Cheating for us is when the other partner doesn't know something is going on. Aka we can sleep with others but nit behind the others back.

Remember. To each their own.

Anything you would not do in front of your DH.

We both agree on what we consider cheating so that wouldn't be an issue for us.

If you hide it, it's cheating

A good working definition of cheating is a behavior that you conceal, that you would not indulge in if your SO was looking over your shoulder.

That being said, I cheated on my DH. My behavior is on me, but it didn't happen in a bubble. Both parties need to take a hard honest look at what contributed to the marriage breaking down to the point if infidelity.

If you have to hide it, lie about it, omit it, etc.. It's cheating..

There are many forms of infidelity. It happens.

I personally have ended life long friendships because he felt I was cheating.. He, however, won't give the same respect.

This.

And I agree completely. My DH cheated. I was partially at fault. We have worked very very hard to rebuild what we let fall apart. I can promise it will never happen again because we know better how to guard our hearts and protect our marriage.
