Is texting another woman considered cheating?

My friend told me that she caught her husband texting another woman from his cell phone. 127 texts between them in one month. They even sent pictures of themselves to each other. She confronted her husband with this and he said that it was nothing and that they only texted about six times. She confronted the woman and she said that they only texted each other once. She printed all of the records off of the computer and was shocked to see that both of them were lying about it. If it was nothing then why is everyone lying about it. Now she wonders if they actually met in person. What do you think about this. Would you consider this cheating?
