But Dr Vijay Nagaswami, the author and psychiatrist says that while emotional infidelity by a man hurts the woman’s femininity, physical infidelity by a woman hits her man’s masculine ego.

Dr Nagaswami says, men forgive emotional dalliances by their women easily, and women forgive physical affairs by their men easily than the other way around. Dua June 8, 2017 - 8:54 am Modernromeo- If both the partner enter into a relationship with this understanding, no problem. No problem at all. But when you promise exclusivity and and up cheating , that is what is problematic. Be open about it. If its not a crime, why hide? What say?
