And by that I mean being faithful to the agreed-upon terms of the relationship and not being deceptive or manipulative or coy. If the agreement is that you have an open relationship, fine, so be it. But if the terms of that open relationship are “No one from work and not on Mondays,” and you’re screwing the person in the next cubicle every Monday coffee break, then you are an a-hole.
I know people that have traditional marriages, people that are balancing relationships with more than one person, people that enjoy going to sex parties with their partner, etc. I am into strict monogomy, but you know, fine, whatever floats your boat. But you have to honor the boundaries of what your partner is comfortable with.
And anyone who cheats is also putting their partner at risk for STDs – even condoms don’t protect from everything!
