    It definitely is not a "trend." It's been going on since the beginning of time. Womanizing from Babe Ruth to Steve Garvey to ..................

    And the average Joe.

    Just to clarify, I'm not offended by the word gold diggers. My daughter went to the Espy awards with her boyfriend and dad, and she said the diggers were out in full force. It's so pitiful.

    I too was married in the Catholic church, but I'll be darned if I was staying with a cheater.

    At least as far back as the bible: David and Bathsheba, Sampson and Delilah... There will always be women who want men for their power and money. Oldest story in the book.

    And men who have no interest in saying the word, "No."

    Power and money are a pretty good selling point.

    What irks me is that guys, usually from women, usually get a pass on not using one of the first words that they learn, "No!", and the lions' share of infedelity is place on the women...disproportionately. Guys have free will, too. I think more blame should be placed on the men who are in relationships for betraying that relationship.

    Really? That's not how I see it. I think that the blame almost always goes to the male and the OTHER woman. And I think a lot of the blame should go to the other woman, at least if she knew he was married, knew his marriage was struggling, etc.

    Who do you think owes more allegiance to the wife....her husband or the other woman?

    Obviously her husband, but I'm just saying, the other woman shouldn't get a free pass either.

    Yes, that's correct. Adultery is grounds for divorce even in the Bible....it is pretty much the only thing that makes for an exception. But of course I guess you could stretch that to mean emotional cheating, but it's clearly not meant that way. It's all about protection and guarding yourself from getting yourself in over your head. Keeping it simple. Not meant to punish, just to protect.
