So basically this is just a question, not an actual event. Let's say you're in an amazing 4 year long relationship with the person of your dreams and they feel the same way. You guys have even talked about getting married starting a family w/e. So one day you get drunk or tricked w/e but you slip up and fuck someone else. So would you tell your partner you cheated on them, hurting them that the love of their life cheated on them? Or would you keep silent, live with the guilt for the rest of your life and have your partner live happily ever after? I guess what I'm trying to ask is that is it not more selfish to tell the truth in a situation like this? People always say tell the truth it will make you feel better and once that burden of guilt is off you it does. But what about your partner? They get destroyed for doing nothing wrong. So is it not better for you to just, as punishment, live with that guilt and make your partner happy, give them the life they dreamed of with you? * I do not condone cheating or lying to love ones. This was just a random question I thought of while I was high. Sent from....... wouldn't you like to know. Probably your mamas house.
