InFidelity….

We interrupt the normally scheduled programing to bring you the latest news on yet another man in the public who has cheated on wife.

Just as Tyger Woods was probably relieved when Jessie James got outed for cheating on Sandra, I am sure Jessie James is relieved that Schwartznegger is now in the media spotlight for his indiscretions.

I remember when President Clinton was exposed thinking that it was nobody’s business, that it was between himself and his wife and should remain a private matter.  I have since have had a change of thought. 

In my religious studies class we were looking at the work of MLK, Jr., specifically one of his sermons on “Loving your enemy”, at the time that Bin Laden was killed and I thought his words were rather appropriate for the present day.

And then the professor mentions to the class that MLK, Jr. had numerous affairs.  I was aghast and personally affronted.  As a woman I lost some respect for the man.  There he is preaching love your enemy, truth, justice and equality for all and yet he was cheating on his wife?  And he was a pastor!!!

He did not just cheat on his wife but also his children and every person that believed in him and has taken his words to heart.  He cheated on me, just as Clinton cheated on me, just as Tyger cheated on every one of his fans who believed in him, just as Jessie James cheated on his fans and Mr. Schwartznegger cheated on his fans.

They cheated on their families.  They cheated on their children.  Just like my father cheated on my sister and me every time he cheated on my mother.

When are we as a society going to stop condoning this behavior that not only rips apart families but also tears apart our society.  It is not gay marriage that destroys the sanctity of marriage but gross infidelities on the part of heterosexuals.

It is the lack of the sanctity of marriage that destroys marriage.  I do not think we need divorce reform.  I believe what is needed is marriage reform.

Marriage has become a socially accepted form of prostitution when in reality marriage should be a sacred partnership that is undertaken by two people on the path to spiritual completeness and wholeness.

So, for those of you that have cheated on your spouse, either male or female, you cheated not only on them but on your children and on me as well.

You took a public vow of fidelity and you failed to keep those vows made before your family and friends.

Please let us make marriage sacred again.

What do you all think out their in the cyber world?  Is infidelity a private matter or does it somehow affect all of us in the spiritual realm?

    Hey ivonne,
    I have to admit I never really realized until I read your article that I often feel offended in some way when I read about men or women cheating on their partners. Not only with men (although I have the feeling that it happens more often this way or at least it appears more this way in magazines), but with women.. and I feel really sad, that they can’t be honest with each other and just break up or stop cheating and try working on the relationship. BUT then I ask myself aren’t we all cheating in life? Because I have to say that I am not always honest with some of my friends or family, because I’m just too gutless to tell them the truth and isn’t this also cheating on them even if not in a sexual way?
    cheers, appleblossom

    Hello,

    you raise a really interesting question. I believe in honesty and telling the truth but I also think that sometimes we don’t always tell the total truth because we think it might hurt someone. I mean if the truth is a negative should we really express it? And just beacuse something is true for us is it true for the other person. There are few people on the planet that I think we would be willing to hear the WHOLE truth from. I guess it really depends on what the “truth” is if we should express it or keep it to ourselves………. so maybe you are not being gutless but a little dicerning?

    I think there are two types of people who cheat. One type are those who just don’t care and will do it no matter what and as many times as they feel like it, this type is unacceptable to me. The other type are those who do it because they are hurting, there is something broken in their relationship, something they aren’t getting, and after trying for however long they end up with someone else, most of the time no purposely. This type can be forgiven if both parties are willing to work on the relationship and fix what caused the person to stray. If said person continues after that then it becomes unforgivable. As for being anyone’s business, well for me that depends on who you are and what you do. If it’s Joe blow off the street I don’t care and it’s their business, no one needs to know. But if you are in a position of power, a position that demands you to act a certain way and to set a certain example and you defile that with cheating then yes that needs to be exposed. Positions like the presidency. You are expected to act with a certain morale character and if you don’t people should know what type of person you really are. Now does it bother me if anyone in any position cheats? No it does not. A lot of people are put in that position everyday, I have even been in that position more than once in my past. So for me it honestly doesn’t bother me unless you are my significant other and we have an agreement not to do such things behind each others back.
