Why not forgive adultery and stay married?


Published: 30th August 2012 - Category: Bastow Blogs - Author: Lynne Bastow

So we British should loosen up, commit adultery and stay happily married like the French?

An article in The Telegraph admonishes us to do just that.

People I know whose partner has strayed are full of anger and mistrust, sadness and loss. How does having an affair make you become happier and nicer then?

The article compares sex to having a meal in a restaurant:

“Sex is no more a moral issue than eating a good meal,” she writes.

“The fact that we eat most meals at home with spouses and partners does not preclude eating out in restaurants to sample different cuisines and ambiences, with friends or colleagues.”

Depending on whether you are the one contemplating adultery or the one feeling betrayed by your partner your viewpoint may be different…

The article makes no mention of any other potential problems. What if the adultery is with your sister? Boss? Father? Best friend? Neighbour?

Next time I go to France I will keep an eye out to see if the French are skipping with joy… they all look quite a serious bunch to me…
