Glee Goss: Is Cheating A Good Way To Get Back At Someone?

puckleberry makes a return appearance on Glee

In case you weren’t glued to your television watching last night’s Glee like we were, there were some interesting relationship shifts going on at McKinley High.

When Rachel was dating Jesse (remember him?) it turns out that Finn played some horizontal hokey-pokey with Santana. Rachel, needless to say, is furious, so she decides to get back at Finn…

…by making out with the guy who knocked up his old girlfriend. (That’s Puck, in case you haven’t been following.) Finn breaks up with Rachel, understandably betrayed.

These shenanigans bring us to a larger question. Is it okay to cheat on your sweetie as a way of getting back at them? Or to make a point? And does cheating-as-revenge, rather than cheating-for-love/lust, work?  Is it ever worth it?

Let us know your thoughts and shout out in the comments below.


P.S. What was your favorite moment from this week’s episode of Glee?

    No, it's definitely not okay to cheat as a way to get revenge. A famous quote is "An eye for an eye only ends up leaving the whole world blind". It's the truth. Never should one sink to the level of their partner. It doesn't establish trust. It doesn't teach your partner how low they've sank. Trust me girls, cheating isn't okay in ANY situation. You dishonour yourself by thinking it's okay if you cheat to get back at your partner because they've cheated. No. It's not. Show that you have morals. Show that you respect the exclusiveness of being in a committed relationship. Even if they broke their respect for it. Talk it out, and get past it. Forgive them and show them that you are worth it. Show them that you are special, because you never have and never will cheat on them because you have too much respect for what a relationship represents. And you still are in a relationship. Until you break up with them, stay committed to that concept.
