No way is sexting adultry. It may be a bvetrayl of a spouse, and may be objectionable to a spouse, but it is not the same or as bad as adultry.
Some spouses get upset if the other spouse looks at porn, and they feel betrayed. Others could care less. Some spouses would not appreciate their spouse engaging in mastrabatiuon. Most would know better than to care. Some people are swingers, and don't consider extra marital sex to be a betrayl.
Obviously, whatever two people agree to in a marriage defines that marriage. As long as both people live by the rules, there is no betrayl. Most probably, Congressman Weiner's wife did not know of his sexting, and thus, it was a betrayl. But adultry is among the worst, if not the worst, form of betrayl, in a marriage. Sexting just isn't as bad. It may be bad enough to destroy a marriage. Some marriages survive even infidelity. Soem fall apart for no apparent reason at all. But to state that sexting is adultery because both are a betrayl is false logic.
I don't think sexting is adultery but it does show lack of respect for your spouse. I think that Sen John Vitter of Louisiana using prostitutes is adultery but this was swept under the rug.
I dont care that he was sexting but why did he get married a few years back if he wanted to keep hitting up other girls lol. Just stay single if thats what you want to do Mr Wiener but sexting is not adultery, prostitutes are. Like we all believe he was just sexting
I belief it might not be adultery but it shows total lack of respect for his wife constituents and himself.
besides if weiner was giving the opportunity he will hit up on those girls
This question advances "sensational news." Of course "sexting" is not adultry. Sexting is a made up term that allows news people and others not use real words to describe conduct, behavior, or personality flaws or weaknesses. By the way, I applaud the people in Anthony Weiner's district who support him and who hopefully understand that there is not a single member of congress who has not sinned and is perfect. I wonder what the result would be if every member of congress was investigated.
I think there's a fine line between when sexting becomes adultery or not. I think if you're sexting, and you have no plans to carry out what you're sexting about, it's just plain disrespect and betrayal, as David said. But, if you actually have plans to do this things being talked about between you and the other person you're sexting, then it crosses the line, and would be considered adultry. Now, with masturbation and looking at porn, like David also mentioned, I don't think that's adultery. But that's just my personal opinion. A lot of people watch porn, and masturbate, but there's also a line that can be crossed too, when it borders on addiction to either acts. But, I also agree with Juan, I don't care that Mr. Wiener was sexting, personally, but why get married if you were just going to go out and be hitting up a bunch of women? Doesn't make sense, and it's blatant disrespect for her feelings. He only feels guilty now that he's been caught.
Adultery simply means that something has been altered from its original text. It has nothing to do with sex. People, mainly religion has changed words to suit their will and give them leave to use fear to control.
Is it appropriate to sext someone other than your lover or wife? That is up to the couple in question, not Jane or Jon Q. Public.
Swingers and polyamorous people promote that sort of thing. Its all about what pops your corn, er wiener.
Sexting may not be the actual act of adultery but I am persuade that it is an act that will eventually lead to it. In my opinion, if you are doing something that you have to hide from your spouse, then it is cheating.
