Why do you cheat? What do you think about cheating? What kind of cheating do you find acceptable?

Is it ok for someone to cheat on an exam? This is something that I know I am guilty of; I have cheated on exams before. We all might find cheating on an exam an passing to be acceptable but on the other hand cheating in a relationship is such a heinous thing to do. Are there double standards here?

'Cheating' is an act of lying, deception, trickery, imposture, or imposition. Cheating characteristically is employed to create an unfair advantage, usually in one's own interest, often at the expense of others. Cheating implies the breaking of rules term. Cheating is a primordial economic act: getting more for less often used when referring to marital infidelity. This in my view can also be applied to cheating on an exam, whenever you take a piece of paper or your calculator loaded with answers or formulas in an exams your also creating unfair advantage, which will result in you passing which also is totally in your own interest, result is you got more than you actually put in. not taking into consideration the genius idea of cheating that you used. lol

With regard to human relationships, couples tend to expect sexual monogamy If so, then cheating commonly refers to forms of infidelity, particularly adultery. However, there are other divisions of infidelity, which may be emotional. Cheating by thinking of, touching and talking with someone you are attracted to may be equally damaging to one of the parties. Emotional cheating may be correlated to that of emotional abuse, which to date is treated as seriously in a court of law as physical cheating
When in a committed relationship, the definition of cheating is based on both parties’ opinions and both parties may redefine their understanding to match the party at an either lower or higher extreme of this definition. Some couples simply believe that cheating constitutes doing anything, whether verbal or physical, that one would not do in front of their significant other. Such examples would include: expressing attraction to another, kissing and feeling.

I read a post yesterday and the blogger said why not brake up instead of cheating.
To me not because a man cheats mean I necessarily don’t love or respect his significant other, some men just can’t be satisfied with one woman, as well as some woman cant be satisfied with one man. To come up with a specific reason why men or woman for that matter would not be an easy task, for the simple reason each person that actually cheats have a totally different reason than the other.

I find these quotes funny, and some interesting. Which one of your guys like the second bulleting?

 All good is hard. All evil is easy. Dying, losing, cheating, and mediocrity are easy. Stay away from easy.

 I would prefer even to fail with honor than win by cheating.

 If you cannot work on the marriage or the women is a moron, staying married and cheating makes the most sense because divorce is disruptive to the family life and your bank account.

 There's nothing like a good cheating song to make me want to run home to be with my wife. lol

I think cheating, either emotionally or physically, cant be really justified. Nor entirely blamed. It's always in the shades of gray. It gives you awful but mixed feelings when cheat or being cheated on, I have similar problem. I'm not the one who cheated of course.

Cheating is wrong...I've cheated once in my entire life and still regret it till this day

One time I cheated on a math test. I didn't feel so bad. I passed.

Cheating can be many things to many people. I for one do my best to avoid cheating. I love that 2nd quote, to fail with honor is a concept lost to many people in the US.

I've never cheated on a significant other, but boy have I been tempted to! In the end, I take personal satisfaction knowing that I have done no wrong (in that regard), even when starring evil in the face.

Your comment on my homework post made a ton of sense! Prometheus was chained there and learned nothing from it...I CHOOSE to be placed in that situation and am learning much.

Milly said...

LOL I like the last quote and yes I agree with most of the points you made in this post.

I dont think I ever cheated on a test( I was one of those kids that always got caught before even committing the crime, so I never bothered)

I seriously doubt that there is anyone on this earth who can seriously say that they have never cheated in one way shape or form- I certainly have- I cheated on a math test in second grade- i don't regret anything, but I still suck at math so I'm pretty sure I didn't anything as a result. Although I think it is always unjustified,it is defintly a grey area. Cheating in a relationship, physically or emotionally does seem to be in a different plane of deception than the second grader who copies answers to pass a test. I believe what goes around comes around, and people who cheat with learn how crappy it feels to be cheated on.

I made a fortune in college writing other people's papers. I'm writing a paper for my brother right now...absolutely not a tinge of morality or regret involved. However, writing someone's paper isn't exactly similar to spreading sex juices to them without their I do agree that the second is more aggregious.

People cheat in the relationship sense because they are cowards, and hope that circumstances will end their relationships for them, also leaving them with a shiny new partner.

I like and agree with the first quote. Cheating is an easy way out. If a person isn't satisfied with being with just one person then they should find someone that has the same mentality and wants to be in an open relationship.

Also if a person feels the urge to cheat while in a committed relationship its time for that person to sit down and figure out what they really want. There is no reason a person can't decide to call it quits and simply move on. Cheating is just a sign of cowardliness.

In regards to cheating on a test... I have to admit that I've done it once or twice in grade school lol.

hmmm... Cheating on exams...well I think everyone is guilty of that. But cheating on a partner...that's wrong. I say, just call it quits of you if you are cheating on someone.
