Many men who get into codependency recovery have been guilty of infidelity at one time or another. Most eventually learn the hard why that being unfaithful is one of the quickest ways to destroy a relationship. If trust and intimacy are lost, there is no firm foundation for anything meaningful. In some ways our society suggests the stereotypical American male who goes outside a committed relationship for sex is “sowing his oats” and just being a “man”. Yet, a woman who does the same thing is often thought of a tramp or worse. Whatever you call it for a man or woman, it is unhealthy for either. The person cheated most in the long run is usually the cheater. There are many reasons why mental illness is one of the fastest spreading diseases today. At least a little of it is many men thinking infidelity is “normal”.
The first and worst of all frauds
is to cheat one’s self.
All sin is easy after that.
