Here's the anonymous letter a woman wrote us defending people who cheat. What do you think? See below and leave a comment.
I listen to your show every day and I love it. No other show is as funny without sounding like clowns or stuck in 1975 and insulting to women.
I'm writing about War of the Roses. I'm NOT complaining because I have listened to it for years. I listened back before I got married and used to laugh and be disgusted at the cheating men and women you would catch.
Well, fast forward about 12 years. Now I'm married and have my own new and personal perspective on cheating. I never thought I'd cheat. I'm a professional, I'm mature, I'm respected in my family with my friends and at work. I'm not anywhere close to what people would consider slutty. But I cheated. Not just for sex, but for several reasons. I met someone who made me feel that feeling that you get when you fall in love. When you wake up thinking about them when you text them and they say they were just texting you. When you sneak away to be with them.
I knew I'd never leave my husband. That's not what it was about. It was about feeling needed and desired and funny and sexy and alive. I know there will be people who say, "If you can't find that in your marriage, you need to get a divorce." I know. I used to think the same thing.
I know cheating will always be taboo and will always be looked down on, and it should be that way. Can you imagine if it were considered okay? But cheaters shouldn't be looked down on. You don't know me. I don't expect or need your approval that I'm a good person. I'm very proud of the person I am. But I cheated. I stopped, but I truly wouldn't rule out doing it again. It's made my life richer and therefore my marriage richer.
If you are one to judge, go ahead. But trust me when I tell you, you personally know dozens of good people that you love and respect who also cheat.
