Cheating passes have been the topic of relationship related conversation lately after it became known that reality star Toya Wright allows her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Mickey “Memphitz” Wright, to cheat eight days out of the year.
The two are appearing on Bravo’s new series, “Untying the Knot,” and revealed this tidbit of information during a clip from their interview with the resident counselor. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that maybe infidelity led them on this path to divorce (even though Memphitz says that he wants to remain married) but what do I know? *shrugs*
So, I have to ask…
Would you allow your significant other or spouse to cheat?
I’ll go ahead and give you my answer — absolutely NOT.
Personally, I believe in having freedom in your relationship. I don’t own anyone and no one owns me. I always want my partner to do whatever he wants to do and to always feel free to be himself (and I operate the same way).
If he feels like he wants to sleep with or have a relationship with someone else for whatever reason, then that’s what he needs to do.
However, I hope he also feels ready to deal with the consequences. *rolls eyes*
Cheating passes defeat the whole purpose of being in a committed relationship so I don’t understand why anyone would make that type of arrangement. It’s like the ultimate display of greed and selfishness. You may as well stay single and date as you please if you want to be able to step outside of your relationship on a regular or recurring basis.
I believe it would add unnecessary and avoidable drama, stress, insecurities and more to your relationship and ultimately it could lead to your relationship’s demise.
I won’t say that cheating is a deal breaker and immediate cause to break up BUT it’s not something that I would be OK with.
