Cheating Better Than Divorce

By Truth About Deception

In the best of circumstances, any marriage can be difficult to manage.  Two individuals working to create a life together is a complicated task, no matter how you look at it.

Sex is one of the many issues that can cause tension in a romantic relationship.  While passion helps bring couples together, it typically fades with time.

How do you keep your sex life novel and interesting, especially when two individuals needs and desires change in different ways?

Dan Savage, author of a new book called, American Savage, argues that in some instances cheating is better than divorce.  A quote and video of Dan Savage making his case:

“If one person is completely done with sex and the other person is not done with sex, what do you advise people to do in that circumstance? Divorce? Traumatize their children?” he said. “I look at that and I say ‘You know, do what you need to do to stay married and stay sane. And maybe that involves cheating, but as the lesser of two evils. Divorce is an evil, cheating is an evil, there are circumstances in which cheating is the lesser evil.”
