Women from the TV industry give their views on infidelity and how it is a deal breaker for them.
Kishori Shahane Vij: I feel infidelity is very temporary, and nobody should get into it. When you are committed to your partner, maybe a boyfriend or husband, I feel you are responsible for the relationship. When you give into your weak moments and infidelity happens, it’s terrible for both you and your partner. Either you break the relationship and be a free bird and if you are in a relationship, then please be honest and stick to your partner.
Moon Banerrjee: Compatibility and respect are paramount in a relationship. Everything else follows.
Ira Sone: To me, infidelity is unacceptable. As a woman, I believe one should only commit in a relationship when they (both partners) are ready. When they know each other and are compatible with each other on deeper levels like similar values, beliefs, and perception towards life and relationship. In today’s world, most of us get into a relationship because of loneliness (FOMO) which leads to emotional dissatisfaction. It’s important to love oneself and know what you want before accommodating anyone else in your life.
Mahhima Kottary: Infidelity doesn’t come from a lack of love but from a lack of respect and acceptance. Those who cheat on their partners who are loyal to them, don’t deserve them. No relationship is perfect and it’s all about finding someone who won’t give up on you, no matter how tough it gets! Respect, acceptance and having an emotionally healthy bond is so essential in a relationship, according to me. Love doesn’t need to be perfect, it just has to feel right.
Tinaa Dattaa: Commitment and loyalty and my own space are the three most important things to me in a relationship.
Prakriti Nautiyal: Sadly, cheating has become very common. Common is normal. There are several needs which a woman wants. She needs to feel complete. That leads to cheating because we can’t get everything under a roof. As a young woman, I need stability in life (personal and professional and financial), love from family and lover, respect, and equality. Empathy plays a major role in a relationship. Honestly, some partners fail at providing everything to their partners. It may be men or women. And nobody can reach perfection but at least we can try.
