“Negotiated infidelity” #fail

Filed under: books — posted by Breakup Girl @ 12:16 pm

Keep your man by letting him stray? So, according to CNN, advises Australian memoirist Holly Hill, who writes, “One of the main things that I have learned is that a woman that negotiates infidelity with her partner is far more powerful than a woman who is sitting home wondering why he’s late from the office Christmas party,” she says. Most powerful of all, BG would submit, is the woman who chooses a guy who doesn’t cheat.

Of course, in Hill’s insultingly dim view of the opposite sex, fellas like that are few and far between. (”Men are hard-wired to betray women on the long-term.”) Look, I know cheating is depressingly common. And if a couple makes “an arrangement” that works for them, then geh gezunt a heit. But — yes — monogamy is a choice. So when a couple makes that choice, I’d call that negotiated fidelity. That’s a much better place to start.

  2. Negotiation implies that they both get something out of it. So… if he cheats then she gets a new wardrobe or maybe when she goes on national television to say that men are incapable of being faithful - he gets to prove her right?

  3. This chick has lost her mind. There are men that don’t cheat. And how about learning ways to please your man and making him only want you… Keep it SPICY, without cheating.
