You know that religion consider cheating a sin.. you know also that the concept of cheating is different from religion to another and from one society to another.
I always wonder about these kinds of ethics issues and I would like to ask some few questions,
# How can atheists and agnostics practice faithfulness in their relationship?
# What is your concept of cheating in the relationship?
# What is your understanding about faithfulness?
# When you can call somebody a cheater?
I believe that a sexual relationship outside of a committed relationship is cheating, religion or no religion. Multiple sexual relationships outside of a committed relationship is not cheating. A "committed relationship" can mean anything the two people involved agree that it means - marriage generally means, "until death do us part," but any commitment, including marriage, is really nothing more nor less than a mutual agreement, and that can be for any length of time upon which the two agree. Though unconventional, there's nothing wrong with two people saying that they agree to commit for, say, ten years, and if it works out, they can agree on an extension.
OK - so it's hardly romantic, but there's nothing wrong with thinking outside the box --
That's absolutely true!
I just find it's more pleasurable to be in the box. ...if you catch my drift.
Are you sure you don't mean in the barrel...if you catch my dripht.
Maybe being "in the barrel" is your idea of fun, if you catch my dright.
