Assuming she is in fact uninterested in sex, wouldn't everyone be better off if I were to quench Jackson's lust without his wife's ever knowing about it? Wouldn't it make him happier and, in turn, make her happier? Is it so far-fetched to think that Ashley Madison could be the answer for Jackson?
While we won't champion a prude, we despise men like Jackson. Is he a husband so spineless that he can't gently ask for what he wants? Perhaps wine and dine his wife, make her feel sexy, and seduce her like he once did? Or is he a bored husband playing the victim to sniff around behind his wife's back? Well, he hoodwinked Berliet, who has decided monogamy just isn't for her.
If and when I find a life companion, I can't say with certainty that I'll be 100 percent faithful—not because I don't want to be, but because it seems presumptuous to assume that strict monogamy is my fate when the majority of people who attempt it fail.
Is this enlightened or lazy? Readers, weigh in.
