couples would stay married for life, there would be ................ no sexual abuse.
I dont think its any secret that the group of individuals hurt most by a divorce is the children that that marriage produced. Often times when adults don't make things work, they get divorced but don't realize the negative impact that it has on their children. I personally believe that a couple who puts their marriage before anything else is doing what is best for their kids.
Have you ever given any thought to the experience of children who live in a constant battle zone where their parents have grown to detest each other but are "staying together for the children"? Having lived through such an experience I can tell you that is the worst of all options.
This means regular communication, date nights, and regular sex.
Are you really so shallow as to regurgitate such meaningless, thoughtless advice; what throwaway pamphlet did you get that from?
I also need not remind you that divorce is usually not a friendly thing at all, and it ends up creating resentment and other issues.
You're confusing cause and effect.
As for cheating, its a moral issue but a very serious one. Now I am not going to go on about things like Polyamory or Swinging. But I suspect that most couples are monogamous, and that they assume that their partner is their only sexual partner. When this happens, it builds trust between partners and trust is very important. When one person or the other goes and seeks intimacy elsewhere, it violates that sacred trust that the partners have between each other.
It is a serious issue if someone wishes to make it so. Usually, the worst part of "cheating" (if it really is "cheating") comes from the feelings of jealousy that are created.
I would be interested in a discussion on some of my beliefs.
I would like for you to tell us more about yourself; I'm curious about how any person could grow up to adulthood with such a shallow understanding of human nature as you project.
