This morning I overheard two women who looked to be my age talking about cheating and marriage. They obviously were married, and it didn't seem like they were plotting to do any cheating; however, they were discussing whether they would take their husbands back if they caught or found out about them cheating. One of them clearly said she would take him back, because they took a vow before God that said for better or for worse, and apparently she put cheating squarely under the worse category. The other woman said she would take her husband back, but she also said she would lead her husband to believe that she had cheated too(even though she said she wouldn't go through with it) just to throw him off and make things even. Neither woman considered leaving, and I found this to be interesting. So it got me to thinking..what would I do if I got cheated on...I know for a fact that one ex of mine cheated on me, but considering I had the market cornered on cheating at that point, I really didn't say anything. But, contrary to what some folks may think, I am at a point where I do not want to cheat at all anymore. Now if the stakes were higher, and I was married, I really cannot say what I would do. The knee jerk reaction is to say eff you, I'm out..But after that initial emotion subsides, I'm sure the fact that I loved this woman enough to marry her would come out, and I'd have second thoughts. A friend of mine told me that this is the kind of stuff that is discussed in marriage counseling, which is funny to me. It is also funny to me when folks who AREN'T married, speak with pseudo-expertise and rather defiantly about what they would or would not do. Just like with anything else, you really cannot say what would happen, until you are placed in that situation. I think this paragraph lost focus about halfway through...

My intern is now 30 minutes late, and he hasn't called. Considering all the ammunition I have on him, without him really doing anything wrong, this certainly is not helping the jihad I have already unleashed on his ass. If he comes in here late, and then goes straight for the internets, we are going to have a stern talk.

Oh, and I would really appreciate it, if all my readers(including the ones who read but don't comment) could donate some money to the Rashad-wants-an-iphone-fund. That would be great!

Rashad,
I often wonder how much a man truly hurts when it comes to be cheated on, or having a woman leave you. If you have a chapter in your book about cheating and its effects and you need a case study please let me know.

I think we're coming to love the intern....

I think it would be pretty awesome to start a fund for the intern's i-phone...
