I have a lot of down time lately.
Blanche is busy with her birds and coming up with new recipes for rat. My career has waned into oblivion. For some reason the studios aren't interested in hiring me back even though I was box office gold.
My days anymore are spent watching judge shows on the television. So, today I was watching divorce court and the question of the day from Judge Lynn Toler was
"Do you think it's better on a relationship to admit an affair"
Personally, I think it depends on the couple. Some couples are able to work through anything. Some couples are able to continually go out and have affairs on each other and they are fine with it. Yet other couples call it quits after one or another may simply look or talk to someone else and nothing physical ever comes from it.
Affairs have been going on since the dawn of time. Look at the "Garden of Eden". Man was made, woman was made. Adam wasn't interested right away. Then something, looking suspiciously like that part of Adam that Eve wanted, slithers out of a tree and temps Eve with it's forbidden fruit. Obviously they made up..... So, I guess that meant that age old statement "not if she were the last woman on the planet" proved to be false. Or I guess it could also prove the little head has been doing the thinking for the big head for eons!
Affairs aren't a good thing. Unfortunately, it's not possible to stop them for the whole world. Maybe someday if scientists come up with a pill that would kill the human libido it might be possible. Until that time if you have an affair, it doesn't matter how well you know your significant other, keep it to yourself. If you're going to feel guilty about it, don't do it. Simple as that. You should know yourself, you should know your own character and be able to tell if you'd feel guilty. If things heat up with someone it is not impossible to stop yourself if your in the middle of the affair and return wholeheartedly to your spouse.
