Just curious on opinions here: If your husband/wife gives you his/her blessing to have sex with other people, without any repercussions, is it, in your opinion, still cheating? Does it make a difference if they know it's happening versus if they don't? My hubby and I have had this talk a few times, and, to us, it would only be cheating if I was doing something behind his back and trying to hide it from him. It took me a while before I could actually understand his way of thinking, but now I can see it. Not sure I can explain it, but I see it. How many of you feel the same way? How many say it's cheating, regardless. And just to be clear, I am asking out of curiosity, not asking for permission from anyone (other than my hubby).
