A screw on the side isn’t worth the troubles it causes if/when you get caught. It surely isn’t worth the pain it causes the SO who is being cheated on and the damage it can do to the children if they find out is too high a price for a little extra spice on the side.
If a man does not love his wife/SO of any amount of time, he needs to get away from her and live a happy life. Why subject yourself to a form of imprisonment because you have kids or other obligations? You don’t need to be with the mother of your children to take care of them. I firmly believe that children will be happier with two happy parents who are separated than with two parents who are together but do not want to be together.
Besides, you never know when you’ll cheat with the wrong girl. I’ve been cheated on. I didn’t like it—it screwed me up. I believe it won’t happen again but, if it does, the other guy will lose his life. I’m well aware that this is a ridiculous attitude, but I’ve somehow stopped caring. If a woman is going to cheat on me, I have no problem at all with letting her life the rest of her life knowing that her whoredom got a man killed.
And, average, you have no way of knowing whether or not you’re cheating with a woman that has a boyfriend or a husband like me. I have a kind heart and I care about people. I want the best for the world and I want the best for those around me. Unfortunately, I’ve gone beyond some breaking point with regards to cheating. If it happens again, someone will die. It could be you. There’re a lot of things you need to think about if you’re going to be the kind of person who cheats, one of those things is the person that the person with whom you are cheating may have a SO just like me—whether or not he/she tells you about that other person may not be told in honesty.
Don’t cheat. I can’t say it any clearer than that. I’m not the only one out there who has lost some grip of his/her sanity where this is concerned. I hope that I will regain whatever it was in me that horrified me when I imagined myself killing anyone in any situation. As of now, the only two things that bother me at all about killing anyone who sticks his dick in my chick is the fact that, if caught, I’d be leaving my two sons without a father in their lives.
