Millions of people have at some point cheated on a spouse. Some may still be doing it now. This type of cheating can wreck people's lives and is often the
reason for high divorce rates in the western culture. If you are having an affair and now feel guilty, then you should definitely stop. Remember why you are in a relationship.

If they find out what you have done they might want to end the relationship and never see you again. Do you really want that to happen? The next time you feel tempted to call or meet someone else, remember what could happen if your partner knew. Think about how sad you would become if they were no longer a part of your life. Ask yourself, is it worth the risk? If you still feel tempted in spite of all that, then you will have to try another tactic.
