Opinions Wanted

So I am seeing this couple in therapy. The man looks at Internet porn pretty regularly. The woman kissed another man. Not that it really matters in the grand scheme of things, but which indiscretion do you think is "worse"? Why?

Actually kissing another man, I think, would be worse. Clearly, though, neither of them is happy or satisfied with their relationship. The question is why and are they willing to work to make it better?

How much is "pretty regularly?" Somehow, in my head, that seems to make a difference. Regardless, I think the kissing is worse because it's a real human being. And kissing for some reason seems more intimate than porn.

Kissing is definitely more intimate than porn. But that's exactly why she did it - she needs intimacy that she's not getting from her husband! They are both wrong. I hope they can work it out.

Yeah, I think it's a cycle, too. She feels unattractive because of his porn habit and so gets ego strokes by kissing someone else.

I have to say that the woman kissing another man is far more meaningful than the guy's voyeurism. Those just pictures. He's obviously seeking something. But the woman did something in reality.

If the habitual porn came before the kissing, it seems like a no brainer as to why she kissed another man. He probably wouldn't care if she "retaliated" by also watching porn so she had to do something to make him feel equally betrayed. There's my 2 cents. =)

It depends. Which porn site? You need to provide a link so I can... uhhh... decide.

Girl...you know where I stand on this one without asking. The porn is the problem. You know what I went through with my ex and his 300 sites in 3 days. I did kiss a couple of men while he and I were still together. When a man is so engrossed in the porn...the significant other needs some attention because she isn't getting it from the man she loves. I don't blame the woman for kissing someone at all BUT...it shouldn't have gotten to that point. Good grief...I could go on about this but won't. LOL
