Facing an adulterer poses ethical dilemmas for the loyal partner. First of all, there’s the initial action of judging the act of cheating as to whether or not it can be justified (note: cheating can never be justified, no matter how you look at it). There’s also the issue of facing the spouse and deciding on the alternatives, like getting a divorce and so on.
To make things simpler for this post, I am going to name the cheater as a “he” and the betrayed spouse as a “she”. This is not to say that men are proven to be bigger cheaters than women, but it’s just a way to make conveying the ideas that will be discussed in the article easier. The relationship that will be focused on in the article will be that of married couples.
So what should the betrayed spouse do?
