"I was leaning more toward giving her a second chance until I read the part about the job offer in another town. It's the right time for you to move up and on to bigger and better things. I've got to give you a lot of credit, as it sounds…"

Brad Williams replied to Philosopher King's discussion Unfaithful Women - What to do?
"I agree with the consensus.  Get rid of her. It's more understandable if a couple has been together for 25 years and raised kids who have moved out.  Middle-aged couples cheating is a little more understandable because they've…"

Boondocker replied to Philosopher King's discussion Unfaithful Women - What to do?
"Even if this were the reason, she had sex with a guy she picked up in a bar while she was in a stable committed relationship.  This indicates a character flaw far more serious than anything I could deal with.  You can love a crazy person,…"

Regular Joe replied to Philosopher King's discussion Unfaithful Women - What to do?
"If I've read correctly, you've been together for 2 years and the cheating occured 8 months ago. That means you had been together for 16 months at the time, correct? Is it possible that, at the 16 month point, you two had different…"

How To Act

- Never under compulsion, out of selfishness, without forethought, with misgivings
- Don't gussy up your thoughts
- No surplus words or unnecessary actions
- Let the spirit in you represent a man, an adult, a citizen, a Roman, a ruler. Taking up his post like a soldier and patiently awaiting his recall from life. Needing no oath or witness.
- Cheerfulness. Without requiring other people's help. Or serenity supplied by others.
- To stand up straight, not straightened.

Marcus Aurelius
