Just learned from the media that there are these variety besides the traditional cheating.
I always thought infidelity means cheating with another person behind the spouse's back without permission. Physical contact, that is.
Obviously, I was not catching up with time. There are, according to the media, the digital infidelity , the financial infidelity......
I sort of known the financial infidelity somewhat. Known a few guys secretly stashing money behind their wife's back. I guess they did it in a way because their spouse tried to control their wallet. Dumb women believed if they could control their husband's wallet then there would be no "fool around money ". So these men hid the money from their wives. Some have different bank account since both the couple work, so the wife will take care of everything within the walls of the house and the husband will take care of everything outside of the walls, including transportation, vacation......
A very extreme case I had known ( unfortunately ), the guy refinanced their house and took out $300K cash for "investment", promptly declared that he had lost it all in the 2006-2007 economic turmoil. Later on I discovered that he hid the money and got a divorce.
Digital infidelity is beyond my understanding. some "cheat" by having an affair over the internet... How they did it and be able to get joy out of it is totally crazy.
I did tell my wife if a pretty creature walk comes into view, I would look at the beauty. I mean, I could not turn my head the opposite direction intentionally... that would be too odd. The wife does not agree.
