DISCUSSION: Can a Man or Woman in a Committed Relationship ‘Earn’ the Right to Cheat?
“I have a huge problem. My wife has lost interest in intimacy and sex ever since we got married and had our first child who is no 9 months old. No matter how much I try to talk about it with her or address any issues she might have, she refuses to entertain the subject. “Is that all you can think about?” is all she will say and walk away. It seems she doesn’t care about how I feel about it. Do I have the right to cheat? I love my wife but I also have needs. I just can’t imagine spending the rest of my life with no intimacy. I feel really guilty about it, but something’s telling me I have earned the right. I had no idea my wife would be this way about sex, and it just kills me. It even puts me in a bad mood sometimes.” – Jon
