What is cheating in a relationship?
Why do we have such a concept?

The idea that one individual owns the exclusive right to have sex with another individual is perverse. Every individual owns their own self. If a person wants to own the sex right to me I will tell them that this is my right exclusively. If at any time I choose to have sex with another individual it is my call. If I choose not to have sex with someone other than my wife, that is my call, not hers. She does not own me. I do not own her.

The concept comes from individuals who are insecure in their own person. They feel the need to control others, such as a sex partner. We make this a binding arrangement in the religious world. "Let no man break apart...."

To answer the original question, you should mind your own business. If there is an agreement between two other individuals regarding acts of sexual intercourse, it is not your concern. You are not the moral police, given that an agreement to exclusive sex rights is a moral issue at all. I don't believe that it is.

If I discovered a married friend of mine cheating, I would most certainly expose them. When I got married I made a promise to be faithful to my wife. If I were to change my mind, I would rather ask for a divorse than sneak around. I doubt that will ever happen though. If I didn't want to have such an agreement, I would never have gotten married. I would have stuck to just having girlfriends. You make an agreement with someone else, it is immoral to break the agreement. Especially since there are some nasty diseases out there. If you are married and think it is safe to have unprotected sex with your wife and it turns out she is out there screwing whoever she wants behind your back, she could infect you with any number of incurable diseases. That is part of the reason I chose to get married. I love my wife as well and also want a stable home for any kids we have. So, yes you sign away your personal sex rights when you get married. I can't say that I own the rights of my wife as far as getting in her pants whenever I want to, however she does not have the right to go screw whoever she chooses any more. Likewise for me as well. As far as outing the person in question, I might mention something in passing. Probably not though, since so many men and women consider quite a few people to be boyfriends or girlfriends at the same time. She might appear to be cheating on him, however he might be doing the same to her.
