This was a question on a recent survey on this forum and it made me start thinking. I try to have very high values and live by them as much as possible. I think cheating in relationships is always wrong unless the person can't break up with their SO because the SO would endanger or hurt the person who wanted out.
I have been in a situation where someone I had loved for years was in an abusive relationship and when he saw how much I was hurt/my PTSD triggered by him clinging to this abusive relationship, he broke up with her and got together with me. I should have said no, for many reasons, but I did not think it was wrong of me to enter into this relationship. Some people might disagree, though. Do any of you find it wrong for someone to break up with someone else to be with you? I generally think someone should wait a little bit before jumping into a new relationship, but I do not see anything morally or ethically wrong with breaking up with someone to be with someone else. The premise was actually breaking up with one person to sleep with another, but I don't have casual sex, so I've changed it a bit to "being in a relationship" with the other person you leave your old relationship for.
