Infidelity is one of the most important and controversial issues in a relationship. However, it's extremely subjective, because not everyone agrees on what exactly cheating is. One person can consider a certain action cheating, while another might not think of it that way.
The University of Michigan released a study of over 400 volunteers of both genders, each explaining what they consider infidelity in a relationship. The answers were very different between each person, and these are the results.
- 43 percent believe that if your partner accompanies another person to a formal event, it's cheating.
- 41 percent believe that going out to dinner with another person is cheating.
- 96 percent consider bathing with another person an act of infidelity.
- 88 percent believe that kissing someone else on the lips is cheating.
- 36 percent consider a kiss on the cheek cheating.
- 52 percent believe that establishing an emotional bond with another person is cheating.
What do you think? Do you think the things above count as cheating? Or are you more open to your partner's interactions with other people as just forms of friendship?
