A infidelidade manter-nos-á juntos

Mesmo não concordando com algumas opiniões deste cronista do NYT, recomendo este artigo. As infidelidades, secretas ou consentidas, serão sempre um tema polémico e interessante para reflectir.

In some marriages, talking honestly about our needs will forestall or obviate affairs; in other marriages, the conversation may lead to an affair, but with permission. In both cases, honesty is the best policy.
Treating monogamy, rather than honesty or joy or humor, as the main indicator of a successful marriage gives people unrealistic expectations of themselves and their partners. And that, Savage says, destroys more families than it saves.
We all have many sensitive spots, but one of the most universal is the fear of not being everything to your partner — the fear, in other words, that she might find somebody worthier. It is the fear of being alone.

(uma boa questão)
But for many women, and not a few men, there is no such thing as “just sex,” for their partners or for themselves. What if a woman, or a man for that matter, looks outside marriage for the other emotional satisfactions that come along with sex?

(e parte de um comentário realista)
Until the word slut has been flensed from the language, until women are not threatened by their former partners, this kind of arrangement will always be a case of male privilege in progressive clothing.
