I think that every couple on this planet should have a frank, open and honest discussion about what their relationship means to each of them, including expectations, boundaries, and what constitutes "cheating" on that relationship. So many people make assumptions (often based on cultural norms) and are shocked when their partner doesn't share their opinions...
