I saw Duke, a weekly men's TV magazine seen on AXN last night. The topic was all about infidelity. They asked a bunch of people on their opinion regarding infidelity and to my dismay, most of the people asked says that infidelity happens because of boredom in their marriage lives! Is it right? You got bored with the person you loved? That because of loving this person, you are willing to spend your life with him, and yet you will be bored with him later? I think this thing in the marriage life of a person should not happen. We should not be infidel with our partners. We should be faithful with him. And besides, you have decided to tied your knots with him. Which means that it is your sole responsibility to love your partner. And loving your partner means that you have to be responsible enough of not hurting him later. How about you? What's your take on infidelity?

I think infidelity is stupid just because you're (bored)with them. Would it not be better to try to remember what brought you two together in the first place and see a marriage counselor to find out what the problems are and find constructive ways to deal with it? Far too many problems result from infidelity, illegitimate children, diseases, hurt feelings, divorce and the list goes on. Anyhow that is my 2 cents worth of opinion for what its worth.

Yes i agree that infidelity is a stupid thing.. this is brought about by our childhood whims and wants.. Always looking for a new thing a new taste.. not being content on what we have.. Lets start to be mature enough to handle our responsibilities as husband and wife.

Infidelity is a sin against God who witnessed your marriage with your wife, and against your wife whom you promised loyalty for the rest of your life. I believe that people who don't consider infidelity as a grave sin are those who also do not know what marriage truly means. These are the people who would end up getting a divorce in the future if they do get married - because they do not know how to take care of their own relationships. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

I agree that infidelity should not happen in a marriage life.. Marriage is not only a contract between a man and a woman but a covenant of God, and anyone that God had put together cannot be separated. Whatever the reason whether its boredom or not it means that your not responsible enough to handle a marriage. For a real man, its your duty be man enough to always pursue your wife.. to continuously pour her with love, always being there for her to provide and care for her. For a real woman, you should always be there to support and respect your husband for you will be his inspiration and hope.

i would like to say that many people might get easily bored with the person they are with, they need space, not another lover. having an affair outside their relationship shows how much appreciation they have for the other - obviously none. to hurt someone because of a simple boredom is just not acceptable and a clear sign of no respect for human feelings at all. that is why many kids think to have multiple partners is fun, nice, and "in" - because of adults who thinks like a 2 year old chimpanzee. i'd say these are worthless people themselves - no control for their worldly desires and have only selfish reasons.
