one man, one woman?

Do you think it's really possible, in today's world for a couple to grow old together with the man nor the wife having an extra marital affair in one way or another? Should we accept the idea that extra marital affair has already become a part of today's life and adjust our mind set to it or should we rather be old fashioned and fight against it?

i do believe in true and honest love. however, temptations are everywhere, specially these days. So, in effect, i am saying that we should be prepared for this possibilities. If it is bound to happen, then it's going to happen. Best thing to do is face it, learn from it then get over it. If you're really meant for each other, you'll end up with one another till you growl old.

I don't think it's at all old-fashioned to assume that a man and woman who CHOOSE to marry, accept that as a commitment to each other. If they still want to pursue relationships with other people, then they are not ready or need not marry at all. Simple as that. I personally will not alter my thinking to justify an affair. I'm not saying they don't happen... of COURSE they do... for any number of reasons, which are personal to the people involved. But that doesn't mean that we have to now weave them into the fabric of a marriage and consider it a given that one or both spouses WILL cheat. They call them "extra marital" for a reason... a.k.a. outside of marriage. We don't need to be making them part of it.
