I'm in Antigua, Guatemala and in this town about 75-80% of the men committ adultery regularly. Seriously!! Adultery is so ingrained in the mindset here that many women acutally believe that it's impossible for a man to be faithful to one woman during his life time. A friend of mine acutally argued with a woman here in town that it is possible for a man to committed to one woman his entire life.
And so the women simply tolerate the infidelity. Pretty sad huh? The statment that all men will cheat on their wives here is understood as fact. Is it true in America? It doesn't look good so far?
PS--sorry for the lack of entries lately--time has been short.

I re-post this because obviously this is a larger issue in America than I was aware of. Some stories left me speechless. The lastest comment was posted 2/26/05)
