How Is It Considered Cheating If You Are Not Married To Somebody?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are many people that ask the question, how is it considered cheating if you are not married to somebody?

The fact of the matter is that when anyone is in a relationship, there are certain things that is acceptable and certain things that are not. Many people go into a relationship without discussing or determining what they expect from each other. You see, we all have different back grounds and different upbringings so our outlooks, experiences and way of doing things are bound to be different.

If you are in a relationship where it is agreed that you can see or even have sex with other people then it is not cheating, whether you are married or not. If you know your partner would not like a particular action and you still go ahead with it, then you are cheating.

Most people consider relationships as a practice run for marriage. It is a time to learn about each other, determine your likes and differences while deciding if with these all told, if you can spend the rest of your lives together. It is a commitment to determine the longevity of your relationship.

If you are seeing someone and you know your partner will not approve of it, it is cheating. If you are hiding it, lying or omitting any mention of this other realtionship, it is cheating. Think about it. If it was an ok thing, an agreed and discussed thing, why would you hide it?

You hide it because you know that it is wrong and will somehow be a matter of contention, argument or full blown out war in your relationship. In other words you know damned well that you are cheating. It is considered cheating because the person you are seeing as your boyfriend or girlfriend, was chosen above everyone else with the possibility, however unlikely, of marriage in the future. So, unless otherwise discussed and agreed to, the stuff that would generally be considered cheating in a marriage would also be considerred cheating here.

Imagine seeing your partner out with someone else. Having fun with someone they have never mentioned or maybe that you do not even know. You will feel cheated on because you know damn well that this was never agreed to. So now you confront them and everyone is hurt and defensive and no one trusts the other and there is now jealousy, disappointment and pain on both sides. When all that had to be done before hand was to discuss boundaries and expectations
