WOULD YOU WANT TO KNOW?
December 6, 2017 8:20am CST
If your spouse is cheating on you, would you want to know ? - After all, what you don't know won't hurt you - or so they say. I thought of asking this question after reading a report this morning which alerted me to the fact that one of my favorite actors - Dustin Hoffman is also in the limelight because of alleged sexual misconduct. I can't help wondering - who will be next. And do I really want to know of every bit of inappropriate behavior committed by my favorite stars many years ago ? I think I would want to know if my spouse or boyfriend is cheating on me - but where celebrities are concerned - their alleged bad behavior years ago won't leave me with sleepless nights. I have never idolised them anyway. Would you prefer to be left in the dark about some things - like your spouse cheating or what your fave actors might have done years ago? What are your thoughts?

If my spouse was cheating I would want to know. I have had that situation before with a x and I knew he was cheating even though he never admitted. You drive yourself crazy trying to figure it out. It got to the point where I left for my own sanity. Even though I never actually caught him I seen the emails and texts and other things that was proof enough for me.

like @Sharon645 says - if you know him well enough you will know. They say "what you don't know can't hurt you" but in the case of cheating - it can. I know of several cases where an unsuspecting spouse has 'caught' illnesses from a cheating spouse because no protection was used.

What celebrities do is their problem, not mine. I do agree with you that there is too much of it in the news these days. As for whether it were my spouse or boyfriend, of which I have neither, I would definitely want to know.

If I am in a serious relationship, I am always upfront with them, if they ever decide to cheat, then I am pretty much done. Cheating is very dumb, very stupid, and selfish. So yeah, I would rather know, so I can move on from them because if they are willing to mess with me and another person just for their own selfish gain, they are not the right person to be with. I despise cheaters, there is a special form of hate I have for them.

Too much importance is placed on celebrities' private lives. Beyond their ability to entertain me, which is their job, I don't care what they do. As for your question, that's a tough one. Having "been there," I can vouch for the incredible sadness of finding out that your mate is cheating. There is no worse feeling in the world as far as relationships are concerned. So that's a tough one, to which I really don't have an answer.
Celebrities are all pampered and spoiled as far as I am concerned so I really don't care about their private lives. If my spouse was cheating I would want to know but then I am sure anyone who has a cheating spouse knows - they just turn a blind eye

What the stars do hardly matters ...but when it comes to your own spouse it would be different . I am not sure how things would be if I were to discover my husband cheating on me , will not be able to take it . I know of many women who don't care either way as long as the husband is looking after and providing for them ..
