Random Thought

We scrutinize and reject any notions of adultery and infidelity in society, despite their great increase in today’s relationships. Divorce rates are up, and that is sadly nothing new. And it seems like there is more and more promiscuous activity in dating. Not only is it more prevalent, but it is equally becoming more accepted. Since when did infidelity become tolerable?

I always find myself playing the devil’s advocate in many matters. But in this particular case I am not taking sides. I just ask the questions that challenge your own morals because sometimes the line between listening to your heart and listening to your head is paper thin.

If you knew the person you’re involved with is not as good as someone else, what would you do? Would you leave for the greener grass or stay at first and hope for the best? If you knew there was another person that could make you happier, what would you do? On the other hand, what would you do if the person you love/like was with someone else? What if you both knew you two would be happier together?

The very roots of infidelity sprout from innocent curiosity and is nurtured by the rays of unspoken dreams and lovestruck emotions. Equally vital yet unseen is the lust, jealousy, and heartache that sustain it. On the surface we find beauty only to realize such radiance stems from our own deep-seeded selfish desires.

    I don’t think there’s ever an excuse for cheating on someone. If one does feel like “the grass is greener” with Lover B, there’s a sense of courtesy and respect that should be acted upon to notify Lover A.

    Personally I feel jealousy is unnecessary. if there’s trust in a relationship, no one should ever feel jealousy–and if there’s no trust, there shouldn’t be a relationship. If said relationship has ended and jealousy has grown, you can only focus on what you can control in life… learn to separate yourself and move on. Jealousy stems from a sense of possession and that’s never healthy when it’s regarding another person. Lust I believe will always exist, whether you act upon it or not based on the situation you’re in or not in, is definitely the determining factor of one’s character.

    I’m just rambling, in no way do I believe I’m “right” or “all knowing”
