Today’s topic: Is it cheating? Hello everyone, I really need some input about my issue. I am a 33-year-old independant single mom of three. Here is my story — when I was 25 I met a man and we were together for eight years. Over the course of those eight years we developed a strong unconditional love for each other. I had my second child (first with him) into our seventh year together. We were not getting along so we broke up and he moved in with another woman. Shortly thereafter they begin a more serious relationship, not just a roommate-type situation [like they had before]. I recently had another child with this man, while he was with his new girlfriend, so we basically have never stopped sleeping together. We are still sleeping together now and he doesn’t feel guilty about his infidelity, should I?
