I know a couple who openly discuss that their relationship doesn't work if they don't have regular se.x. I've seen them argue because he didn't want it and she did. She talks about how she wants to ravish him all the time. It's actually uncomfortable at times how she goes on about it.
She doesn't know he sees prostitutes whenever he gets the chance.

I would never stay in a unfaithful relationship. I have been cheated on and left the guy straight away. I was jaded for a long time until I met DH and now I can say that I am 100% certain he would never cheat on me.

I said I don't consider the circumstance mentioned by the OP as rape.
What she said was:
"I've also got friends who believe that if you want your marriage to stay intact you have to have a lot of $ex even when you don't feel like it because if you don't he will stray."
Where is the pressure from their husbands?
Do not put words in my mouth.

Although I don't think it has to do with how much s3x they get as I know some of the women and men have regular s3x but they stray because they can and wants to be with someone new or prettier, funnier or makes them feel all tingly inside or makes them feel appreciated or better or to take the pain away..

I'm not getting into on online debate.
All I know is if my friend came to me and said "I feel like I have to have sex with DH in order for him not to cheat"
I couldn't just sit there and smile like that's ok.
I would urge her to get help - for her own insecurities OR for something more sinister at play.

I've been 'cheated' on in the past, I've been in 'open' relationships. I've had my fair share on betrayals. (None of these were with DH.)
To date, the worst thing I've experienced relationship wise, was when I 'thought' id found 'the one', was head over heals in love with this man, he was my EVERYTHING, he came home one day & said 'I don't love you anymore, and I'm sorry I don't know why, I am in love with x and I am leaving you for her'
He didn't physically cheat on me, and unfortunately he died in a car accident not 2 weeks later.
As long as my DH still loves me & is alive.. I will work through anything to make it 'work'. & I think very highly of women who do the same.

I think I could move forward if it was a once off thing. If we sought help for it and he admitted to it being a huge mistake.
I couldn't however turn a blind eye to him doing it again and again on a regular basis.
He could say he loves me but how could someone hurt you like that and love you?
I'm not sure? Not putting you in the firing line but interested in your opinion considering you've been in the situation before?

In response to the OP, in any relationship where there's no explicit agreement to not be monogamous, of course it's realistic to expect your partner to be faithful. The fact that people aren't faithful, in my view points to a communication breakdown and emotional disconnect. But that doesn't mean that one's expectation of fidelity is unreasonable or unrealistic.
Incidentally, discussions like this always seem to focus on men as the cheater. Plenty of women are unfaithful too.

If it was a repeated thing where he was constantly cheating it would be over.
There isn't much I would not do so if he had to go else where to me it would mean that he didn't love me.
I wouldn't end a relationship and break up a family over a one night stand. He is human and so am I we sometimes do stupid stuff. I wouldn't feel completely betrayed over a one time thing. But my heart would break if he was having an affair and was emotionally involved with her. That is a deal breaker. See everyone has different lines to cross I don't think there is right or wrong it's up to an individual to decide.
