Every couple defines what they feel is cheating within their own relationship. No it wasn't cheating in that relationship because they talked about and agreed to it. You are now in a new relationship that gets a new definition.

They both understood the boundaries apparently and did it openly and with the knowledge and consent of the other. That is not cheating. They were just a little more open minded than most people are able to handle. The question is why is she his ex? Did it have anything to do with this issue or was it other compatibility issues? If he is that adventuresome and you are not then you guys are headed for differences.

Cheating means going behind someone back. This was an open relationship which is different from cheating. But whether he cheated or not your boyfriend is abnormal for doing this anyway yet you are still with him so it seems you are o.k with him being like this. Obviously he is trying to talk you into it as well.

If they had permission to do stuff with other people, it's not cheating in my opinion.
Positive: 100 %
Answer #8 | 28/12 2013 20:25
As they had an agreement within their relationship THEY don't consider it cheating. But to other people it would be considered cheating.

It is cheatinng! To me an open relationship is not being in a relationship its friends with benefits.
Answer #11 | 28/12 2013 20:14
Technically you can't call it cheating if it was an open relationship and they stayed within the "terms" of their agreement, but in any normal relationship it is definitely cheating.
Answer #12 | 28/12 2013 20:08
if they both know about it and do it it's not cheating but if I was you I'd watch my bf's back
Answer #13 | 28/12 2013 20:12
Nope. It's not cheating if the other person has sanctioned it. Cheating is underhanded, behind-the-back stuff. If you don't agree to it and he does it, then he has cheated on you, but he didn't cheat on the ex even though the act is the same.
Positive: 0 %
Answer #14 | 28/12 2013 20:17
You've never heard of an open relationship I presume?
Answer #15 | 28/12 2013 20:08
nah... permission is good. it means he is loyal and wanted to know if it was ok by the person he cared about. I say it aint cheating if he got an ok
Answer #16 | 28/12 2013 20:42
It's technically not cheating, but it is odd. Are you sure you're okay with what he has done? He may want to do the same in your relationship. Personally, if you want to be able to have open relations with people you should be single. The fact that both of them were okay with knowing their partner was fooling around with lots of other people, is very strange to me. But I am someone who believes that a relationship is for two :/ I completely agree with Liza2 If you want someone or something else, leave

If course it's not cheating! They had boundaries and were open and honest about their behaviour. "Cheating" by definition involves deceit and mistruths. It may have been an unusual set up that they had, but it was honest.
