Throughout the history, men are always known as polygamous.But the world is changing and what men can do are now being done by women.So, is it more acceptable for men to go astray to relationship and marriage than women? Please cite your views and scenario on this issue.

The book of law states it is totally unacceptable, but in general people commit mistakes.In the society that I currently lived, there is still a double standard on women gaing astray than men.

Sad to say seeing as how I don't think it should be acceptable man or woman but truth is society is much more forgiving of men straying. I do however think that it's getting more and more acceptable for women also - it's just going to take some time for us to catch up with the men :(

Totally unacceptable but it happens!I wish Asian countries, like my country would be more forgiving to women too.You see, double standard is still evident here regarding women going astray.We don't even have divorce law here. We got ten times catching up with the Western countries on this issue!

Where I'm at its very unacceptable for men to go astray in relationships or even leave them in several cases, far more than for women. In fact women get excuses while men get shamed, berated, insulted, accused. Here is how I've seen it (and a few instances I've lived) If he breaks up with her, he's heartless If she breaks up with him, she's doing whats best and he's...(a worthless lover, inadequate, etc) If he doesn't commit at any stage of the relationship, he's (a coward, "afraid of commitment", insert other shaming language here, etc) If she doesn't commit at any stage of the relationship, she's being independent, or its "just fine". If he cheats on her, he's a scumbag and its all his fault If she cheats on him, she did it on her feelings and he's...(a worthless lover, inadequate, unsatisfactory, did something to cause it, etc) And you mentioned marriage and going astray there, I'll shed some different light on that. Where I'm at divorce is just an instant cash in for plenty of people, anyone can divorce for any reason. Once again where I'm at and what I've seen, its much more acceptable for women to divorce than men. (See the "if he/she leaves" part of my post)

You're right, men do tend to cheat in a relationship more then women. Unfortunately, this is still considered acceptable behavior in many societies around the world. I personnally think infidelity, weather commited by a man or woman, is a sign of a weak and shallow person. And until society chooses not to accept this as normal behavior, it will continue.
