no point in doing that, if my marriage wasn't working out then we would discuss things and then move on amicably for the sake of our daughter. Messing around doesn't solve anything. End it, move on.

Each relationship has it's own intricacies and it's own set of inner balance...
I know I'm not very helpful in this comment, but, one should delve deeper and get more information about the dynamics of a particular couple to judge accordingly...
Not all couples are the same...

well that's what i think, but i'm watching mistresses and this one couple haven't had sex for 18 months, so she's out shagging everyone and anyone...then when they are both at home, it's like the big unspoken secret, which they both hate, so they both tiptoe round each other, i just can't imagine living like that and just wondered whether it really is the best option...
