Why is this being treated like its something new? Has anyone seen the movie with Golden Hawn & Susan Saradon? There have always been groupies after every show, game, political rally etc. etc. etc. Is everybody in this country dumb or have been sleeping? Not everybody does it...and not every marriage can survive it! Thats because there wasn't love there or the love was replaced....Get over it!

Cheating is bad n horrible.I'v been tempted on several occassion to cheat but determination saw me through.The side effects could be disastrous esp 4 the woman.

I never cheated on my husband during the fifty years we were married. But he cheated on me. No one knows how much pain the cheated on person goes through unless they have lived through it themselves. My husband has been gone 4 years and it happened 25 yrs. before that. I have just since his death been able to convince myself that it was his problem and not mine that caused the cheating. God has been my rock during this healing time. I am not sure I could ever trust again. Only God knows the answer to that.

I believe the question should also be.... have you ever emotionally cheated on your spouse?? Cheating is often believed to be only physical, but if you really dive into it, some emotional bonds that are created between two people can be stronger than any physical bond.
this is often the forgotten behavior to the question, have you ever cheated... you can control the physical attraction much easier than the emotional connections...

My wife cheated. She said she cheated because the guy was just like her. Unfortunately I have to stay married, otherwise I lose half of everything and will only be able to see my son 3 days per week. So I'm staying for financial reasons and to make sure I see my son everyday. Sux, but oh well!

After seeing this episode, I am now actually interested in reading Mary Jo's book. I followed her early career (in Canada) and honestly, I scoffed when I heard she had a book out. However, after hearing her on LKL, I am now intrigued to read it as I too have been in her shoes. My difference being, we worked through it because the other woman was merely that...a fling.
I did disagree with something the former mistress said however, and that was that it's unlikely that Jesse James would have cheated had he worked at (I think she said Jack in the Box) a job out of the public eye. BS! He would have been just as likely to cheat. His job just gave him access to a different type of woman that he may not have met working at Jack in the Box. It doesn't change the fact that he would have cheated however.

Why not try to find a way to change our relationships, rather than figure out how to stop the history of cheating? If people are prone to that sort of behavior, they can accept it and be upfront about it in their relationships. I am a female who has been with a couple of men that embrace a lifestyle of non-monogamy or polyamory. It is a challenge like any relationship, but I'd rather have honesty and knowledge of the situation than to be in the dark. It gives me more control over the matter.

no way would I cheat..but husbands who travel often do..& after they die, the mistresses come forth & let the wife know..sad...Kathi Lee Gifford stayed..because they had children..Frank G was set/up..& he was weak ....

GET SERIOUS, Chris Rock said men are only as good as their options.
ADAM Carolla, should have spoken more. He gives it to you plain and simple.
Mary Jo, looks like the type that doesn't try hard, she is the type that says look at me now be happy you are here.

@ KAREN C, Child PLS, if jesse were working at JAck and the BOX he would not be pulling the same amount or quality of tattooed tail.
Famous guys bring in way more tail. Women know going in they have to put out for famous men, just so they can say they have been there!
Famous men, get more selection then JOE 9-5 ever does. Science will tell you women want mr. perfect regardless of settling down with Mr. P or not , SCIENCE.

Why is this guiltless woman blaming men across the board? There are many different scenarios in which these affairs begin. She is just justifying her own nasty actions. And what about cheating women? We all know they do it. I've been with a few myself.

Men by nature are polygamous and women is monogamous. I do not see anything wrong with having a mistress as long as both knows the exostence of each other and know each other. I do not have problems with polygamy as long as is not a religious or forced polygamy.

Cheating, that is having another without one or both women not knowing is wrong. Marriage as any relation should be respected because it is the foundation of society. Women's possessivity fed by the stupid feminism is what wrecks society. Please do not look at me as chauvanist pig. I belive women are great and deserve equal rights, equal pay, equal education and every good thing in life, and the same goes to me. As long as we do not begin to live our own nature, divorce, and broken rules will continue to be the norm.

I have said all of this because, I have the pleasure of having two women and the same time, and both of knew each other, we went out together and had a ball. One decided to part (the mistress) and her will was respected. None of them is a bi-sexual and I am not a super hunk nor multi-millionaire! I guess, I am a nice person with a big heart that decided to live his life as he feels right and will continue to do it!

I've been married 15 yrs. I don't even think about it. What the point of marrage if you want to cheat? I don't understand why any body would want to have more than one man in their lives it's hard enough with one. My husband says the samething he was raised with 8 sisters has 3 daughters and a grandaughter he say that more than enough women in his life lol. He says he thinks he would go crazy to add another woman to the mix

Cajazz76:24:8   April 3rd, 2010 12:58 pm ET

First question asked in the poll should be how many of you lie?
Then ask how many cheat.................

colbt smith   April 4th, 2010 5:40 pm ET

I feel being faithful is the only way to go when one is married,having said that I always laugh when I hear people say ,"we have been living together for the last .......years",So what ,they are not married so why do they think they get to enjoy the rules of that institution?
I feel if you don't want to be with your signifigant other then tell them,step up to the plate and say so,can't hurt any more than getting cought cheating can it?No Brainer!......thanks for listening.

Demond   April 5th, 2010 6:05 am ET

I will be honest here, I have been married for almost 17 years now and I have had a few affairs. Now before all of you (women and men) start attacking me please read what I have to say. The first affair I had was after the fourth year of marriage. My wife started withholding sex when she didnt get her way so after awhile I got fed up and found someone who wouldnt. I never lied to the "other woman". She knew I was married and loved my wife it was just sex. When my wife stop withholding sex the affair stopped. All of the affairs I had was just like this.

I believe most men cheat for sex and the feeling of being wanted. Yes ladies us men want to feel wanted. And I also believe most women cheat for emotional reasons, they want some one to listen and be there for them
and want to feel wanted.

And no my wife has no idea from my affairs. I wanted to tell and asked a trusted female friend if I should and what she told me was it would be selfish to do so because although I would be unloading my guilt it would be devasting to my wife. I have been faithful for the last seven years.
