Simon, were you on 'Who Wants to be a Millionare'?

I was watching a repeat on Game Show Network tonight and the first ever winner of 1 million dollars [or as the government and I like to call it $600 000]. The guy looked just like your profile pic.

Yeah, I know that's not really you, but the fact that there's someone now that looks just like that gave me the giggles.

So here's a question folks - what are your thoughts on the "other woman". Definition - a woman that knows a man is married and still... y'know ;) .

We were having an "other woman" discussion last night [after my full stomach of shrimp alfredo...yumm!] and I said that from the perspective of the child who has seen this woman potentially break up his parents' mariage... she's the whore that broke up mom and dad and to me, every "other woman" was an added straw to the back of the marriage... but then again, I think cheating is wrong. Not saying I have never done it or won't do it, but it's still wrong.

Your thoughts?

It's just wrong. In the end, somebody will get hurt, whether it's the wife, the husband, or the "other woman". There are enough single people available, so that makes having an affair with a married person just not acceptable. I've cheated and been cheated on by boyfriends, but that's not the ame as when you're married. Hugs.

Sadly, I did not win a million. You’d be the first person to know about it if I did, I can assure you.

Of course breaking up a marriage and causing distress to children is wrong, as is cheating on your partner even if you’re not married. The problem is that people are human, and will always do these things.

However, if a girl or woman falls for a bloke who’s married or who already has a girlfriend, she can’t force him to betray his partner. If he has an affair with her, then he is culpable too. The guilt may not be equal, but it still takes two.

Of course it’s not that simple. People are led by their hearts (or their gonads, if you prefer), and have far less control over their actions than they’d like to believe. So I tend to regard such events as being unfortunate strokes of fate rather than deliberately malicious.

I too think that "cheating" on ones spouse is wrong.It always hurts somebody in the long run. However Im not one to judge someone else who cheats I know every situation is different and just about all men tend to think with their penis!Right or wrong I just dont know wish I did!
