Is that o.k to have a extra marital affair? is it o.k to find a different partner when your wife is away?

In my opinion, for me personally, no. If my husband or wife ever did that and I found out I'd be having the locks changed so fast their head would spin. But I know people who are perfectly happy in polyamorous relationships which means that it's ok to do that sort of thing as long as the other primary partner knows about it.

Is it ok for your wife to be having an affair when you aren't around? Some people have open marriages and condone this. If you have to keep it a secret, then no, it isn't ok. It is going to come out eventually and you will only be hurting many people.

If you have to ask, then I think you have to think about this more carefully before deciding. I say that because the answer to something like this should come from within yourself. It isn't a matter of what the majority think or what conventional morality says. The easy answer is no, of course it's not ok. You're married and you should remain monogamous. That's what marriage is. If you think it isn't for you anymore, then that's ok, people do fall out of love. But then come clean with your spouse, tell them how you feel so you can both move on. Someone like me can tell you all this, but unless you feel it, then you're missing the point. You have to be sure about something like this, and so only you can be the judge of what's right or wrong here.

Extra marital affair-it is a big "NO".What if your wife starts thinking the same way when you are out of town for lets say a week?When you find out what she did,how would you react?Any respectable lady or a gentleman will not like his or her partner to have an affair outside marriage.If you are planning to have one,then please hold your step right there.

It is definitely not okay to do that and any man or woman or practices that belief is very well disturbed. I am sorry if I have offended you but I feel that those who even think of doing that is not only committing a sin against themself, the ten commandments, but also against their wife. It's poposterous to see anyone do this and I surely hope that you are not! Would you want your wife to do the same to you?

Generally speaking, no. You should never cheat just because you and your spouse are separated - how would you feel if she had an affair while she was away? However, there are couples who, after having a discussion about it, are okay with extramarital affairs while separated - but only while separated. If both partners agree to this, then it's a different matter.
