Is it just me or has the word marriage these come to mean something more like, Long term relationship? It seems that no one values marriage any more. Cody travels for work a lot. This is no secret. He is one of the only guys at his work who looks at it as time away from his family as a bad thing. The rest of them can't wait to get back on the road to get away from their wives. Most of them of course cheat while they are gone. One of Cody's first days as a trainer, someone older man he didn't even know pulled Cody to the side and told him, "Son, I am going to teach you everything I know about cheating on your wife. I have been doing it for years and have never been caught!" He was PROUD about it and thought Cody would be grateful and think this guy was "cool". What a schmuck! Unfortunately, most of the others guys are like this, NOT ALL, but most.
For instance, Cody has been gone almost exactly 3 months now. One of the guys on the trip with him JUST cheated on his wife this week. You are gonna see your wife in a week moron, you can't wait one more week to keep it in your pants?! Two or three of the other guys are cheating on their wives as well. One of which has been married for over 20, maybe 30 years. He was already caught cheating when he was in Kuwait for a year. His wife, who is a very nice person by the way because we know her, told him if he does it again they are done. He is in Germany with Cody and guess what? The first month they were in one area and then they moved a couple of hours away to a new location. Well every weekend he has been driving back to the other hotel to hook up with this girl he met whom he calls him girlfriend. WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!?!?!?!
This might sound stupid but one of the things that REALLY bothers me about this is the fact that most of them cheat JUST to cheat. They aren't falling in love, they just can't keep it in their pants so they go for the first person who will have sex with them. Usually, this means someone less attractive then their wives. I told Cody straight out if he EVER decides to cheat on me, she better DAMN WELL BE FREAKING HOT! No cheating down or he is in even WORSE trouble then he will be for the cheating part. Seriously. Sounds stupid I know but come on, cheat UP people if you are gonna do it.
I am SO out of time on this post even though there are a million things I want to write still but one of the other things that gets me is when you have kids and you cheat. People are just so selfish now a days that they ruin things for the sake of pleasure. Why did you get married and have kids in the first place? I can't stand that. One of the guys he was in Iraq with one time had a girlfriend and his wife, back in Texas had a boyfriend. He said while he was on the road she was allowed to have a boyfriend and he was allowed to have a girlfriend and they have two small children who are seeing their mom with another man. PROBABLY spending the night in the bed their daddy is supposed to be sleeping in. And guess what happened? She left him for this other guy AND took ALL the money he had earned while in Iraq! That's what you get people for messing around and being selfish.
NO CHEATING! There is no point. If you don't want to be together any more, just get divorced and save everyone else the hurt and pain. ESPECIALLY if you have kids. You are NOT doing them any favors by staying together and then cheating. Kids are smarter then you think. They see things, they know things. They LEARN from YOU and your behaviors. Don't go sneaking around because I bet you anything they know.
One more thing real quick...Cody talks to me every night before he goes to bed and he wakes up at 5:30 every morning so that he can talk to me for a half an hour or so before he gets ready for work. One of the guys at his work told him that he was proud of him for doing this and for not cheating and for loving his family because of how everyone else from their work is. It almost seems dumb doesn't it. Someone is proud of Cody for loving his family and wanting to be with them. Isn't that what you are SUPPOSED to do?
PS No time to look over this to make sure I don't have mistakes, which means there are most likely mistakes!
