I'm having an affair. What should I do?

"Sex is no more a moral issue than eating a good meal." ~ Catherine Hakim

"After marriage a woman needs to keep one eye closed." ~ ancient Chinese proverb

"Watch Match Point, then make your lifestyle choice." ~ Dave Lucas

Regrettably, some folks walking the planet who have "papers" on someone else, sometimes choose a path of questionable integrity. There have been affairs through the ages, some of which were kept totally secret, others that exploded (think Tiger Woods) onto front pages, social media and television screens.

Whatever the outcome of a rogue relationship, the ultimate acceptance or rejection of such an act lies within the mind(s) of the two involved and balances on the way each, individually and together, carries out the extracurricular mission.

Now, Catherine Hakim weighs in ::: "As dating websites open up a global shop window of sexual possibilities, as life expectancy continues to rise and we become increasingly sexually aware, how can we still take the crushing old rules of fidelity, that turn marriage into a prison, for granted? Why should we not be able to recapture the heady thrills of youth, while protecting a secure home life?"

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
