Dear Kris,

I usually enjoy your articles a great deal, your vulnerability & no-bullshitery makes it a refreshing honest & beautiful read.

But I completely disagree that it’s a “beautiful” thing to fall for someone else after being in a so called “happy” marriage with kids because you’re talking about the kind of pain that breaks up families and there are actual victims here.

The cuckolded, betrayed husband, the children — even the woman, none will come out of this unscathed & unscarred. That’s not beauty. That’s ugliness & suffering, & if you’ve ever been hurt like that, you’d know, & not glamorize adultery.
