Some people are adamant that a text counts as cheating, while others, like Ross from Friends, think anything goes because you were on a break.
The issue arises when two people in a relationship have… different ideas about what constitutes cheating.
Luckily, we can now settle the debate with some cold, hard research.
According to a recent survey of 3,342 Ashley Madison members, emotional cheating feels just as deceitful as physical, as 55% of the respondents believed that forming a deep emotional bond with someone else counted as one of the worst forms of cheating.
The sending of erotic photos and texts were shortly behind, with approximately 44-46% of the respondents believing these counted as cheating.
