You say.

Byline: Dear Coleen

PEOPLE often write to you about feelings of guilt for being attracted to someone outside their relationship or their resenting their partner "cheating"on them.

I'm not an advocate of open relationships, particularly when the couple have children, but we need to reconsider our views of infidelity. Sex with someone who isn't your partner isn't necessarily a bad thing.

In an ageing society, many people live in sexless marriages. To forsake all others till death do us part may be a very long and damaging commitment.

I'm in my 60s and have never had an affair and have no intention of having one. However, people who have a fling shouldn't automatically be condemned as "cheats".
