Some people just can’t be faithful in relationships. They can’t love just one person. They give into temptation.

And some people suffer being betrayed by a lover. Whether their lover confesses to the crime, or they find out another way, one thing is for sure: It hurts.

This lesson is Part 1 of two lessons in which Mason and Emily talk about cheating. This week, they talk about whether they have ever cheated or been cheated on. Listen up.

Mason:  Uh, so Emily, you’re in a committed relationship, right?

Emily:  I am.

Mason:  And have you ever cheated on the guy?

Emily:  I have never cheated on my boyfriend and I’m not just saying that because he’s sitting just ten feet away from me.

Mason:  Uh-huh. Have you cheated on anyone ever?

Emily:  Um, I’ve never cheated on anyone, but my ex-boyfriend, uh… We were younger, we were in high school, and he cheated on me quite a bit.

Mason:  Quite a bit?

Emily:  Quite a bit.

Mason:  That’s a bummer.

Emily:  ‘Cause high school relationships… It was very emotionally damaging to me.

Mason:  Oh, God. You’re, like, gonna cry now.

Emily:  Have you been cheated on or have you… Don’t tell me you’re a cheater.

Mason:  Not to my knowledge. I have, I have been a party to cheating a few times.

Emily:  Mason!

Mason:  Um, in no prolonged sense.

Emily:  Shame on you.

Mason:  It’s usually been while I’m traveling, uh, you know…

Emily:  So do you abide by these rules that, like, if you’re in a different country it doesn’t count as cheating…

Mason:  No, no, no. It counts. It just… I somehow kinda… I rationalized it…

when you want to cheat ,just wait a second and see yourself in place of your partner and feel it,do you want to cheated on??????of course not,if you do this you will never ever think of cheating anymore because you can feel how bad it feels…..

Cheating is an art some pepole use it for their own benifit ,while some for get away of the situation which they don't like.

sometimes it can save u to be in a dangerous situation,but it can hurt the feelings and can put in danger to other's also.

We can use this art with Brain and soul,so that both partie's can no be in a loosing situation.

Cheating others for one's own sake will get the same from other's .Cheater's should be aware of it and  should quit it.
