My wife and I separated for a while a year or so ago and while we were separated I met another woman. We went out a few times, but she knew I was married and we never got close to each other or even kissed or made out.
Then my wife and I got back together and we are trying to make our marriage work but I have been keeping in touch with the other woman just in case things don’t work out.
Queenie, is this cheating?—Just wondering
Of course it is a form of cheating. There is a reason the phrase “forsaking all others” is part of your wedding vows. If you really want to make your marriage work, you will make a complete commitment to your wife and forget about “hedging your bets.” And hope your wife does not find out about your “just in case” friend.
