Everyone deserves some measure of respect, let's just say I try not to judge.

Depends, if the person they are cheating on is abusive or what not then ya I'd have full respect still for the person cheating. Any other circumstance involving the person being cheated on not in the wrong...probably not

If you accept what appears to be the generally accepted ideal that defines relationships then cheating is betrayal.If your relationship/relationships transcends sex, time ,spouses/partners,or with consent, then it isn't.

Have you,(editorial "You"), been betrayed or has your preconceptions and possessiveness betrayed you?Case in point.I know an individual that has a partner that can no longer have sex.(Age and a cardiac condition)They have a long standing mutual friend that fulfills that function.All parties involved are well aware and are in agreement.Betrayal,Cheating?Possibly, if you're a strict constructionist. All parties involved are the closest of friends(40 + years) and are content with the arrangement.The only reason I became aware of this very intimate detail of their relationship was through one of their children.

No, basically you destroyed the trust you build up.

Absolutely.... NOT!
Ditch them like the scum they are. The trust should be gone and there is no longer any basis for a friendship none the less a sexual relationship.

Since the key word is 'Cheat' I'm going to assume that you've already excluded platonic, multi-partner and open relationships. While such might not be the traditional couple they are relationships in which all parties have agreed to the situation, hence not 'cheating'

And NO. I would respect and trust someone who cheated on the partner much less than I otherwise had until I learned of this betrayal of what would otherwise be presumed the most important person in their life.

Said betrayal would not have to be sexual to earn my contempt.

Less respect towards someone who cheats? lol
Trust me some people who "Don't cheat" is worst. I have a bit of respect towards a certain type of individual.

For me, both physical and emotional cheating applies.
I find recognizing that you are not happy in your relationship, breaking up and then commencing to engage in the acts that you wish to do that you could not otherwise when you were in a relationship is a respectable way to act upon the issue. However, staying in your relationship and engaging in such acts is despicable.
