Even in Texas, I think it's illegal to marry THAT kind of best friend!

Is it cheating if you're not the one who is married? Just curious.

For purposes of the poll, you can define cheating yourself.

As far as my opinion goes, if you're dating a cheater then its sort of like cheating on yourself. Dont' ask me to explain that! But I would at least ask that the man have as much consideration for me, as I had for him in that respect.

I vote no. I still consider it immoral, but not cheating (i.e. you're not breaking a promise of fidelity - express or implied - to anyone).

Put another way -- if he/she would cheat WITH you, what would make someone think they wouldn't cheat ON you?
