    I understand and agree to an extent. Our friends will always say and do things that maybe don't fit with our morals. But I think it really depends on bottom lines for each person. One person may find CIO so abhorrent they couldn't be friends with someone that did it, others may not like it but stay friends. Others may refuse to maintain a friendship with a drug user, or someone that was rorting CL while others would.

    I guess for some, their bottom lines don't include keeping people in their life that sleep with other married people. I don't think there is really a right or wrong answer tbh.

    Nope. Never ok in my opinion. Just imagine how you would feel if someone did it to you and then decide if you can do that to someone else. Pretty much sums it up as far as I'm concerned.

    No it's not ok for either party. If you are unhappy / unsatisfied in your relationship then either work on it or get out before you go messing about.
    And married people who actively pursue relationships outside the marriage? Disgusting human brings.
    I've posted about this stuff before- thanks for raising the issue op. interesting read.

    Ok I'll answer OPs initial question - the only time it is 100% ok is with Channing Tatum ... I'm selfish like that.

    I wasn't saying there is. Just giving my point of view from having been in that position.

    Yeah I know. I was more just reinforcing your point that everyone has their own bottom lines for what they will and won't accept in a friend. For you it was something you could move past, some can't. As I said there no right or wrong answer.

    I think if ALL of us treated each other with the same respect as we would like others to treat us I think this world would be a better place.

    In my observation over the years watching other people, relationships built on lies and cheating NEVER flourish or go the distance .

    It's NEVER worth the angst these selfish people put their loved ones through...
