Poll: Where do you draw the line when it comes to cheating in a relationship?

“I can accept people make mistakes.”

STRICTLY COME DANCING stepped up a gear in the gossip stakes last October when comedian Seann Walsh was photographed kissing his dance partner Katya Jones.

At the time, Seann was in a relationship with Rebecca Humphries while Katya was married to fellow dancer Neil Jones.

The indiscretion led to the immediate demise of Seann and Rebecca’s relationship, and while a question mark initially hung over Katya and Neil’s marriage, the couple ultimately chose to move past the incident.

Earlier this week, Neil elaborated on this, telling Hello! magazine that he wrote his wife’s behaviour off as ‘a mistake’.

“I can accept people make mistakes,” he told the publication in an interview he did alongside his wife of five years, who insisted that her ‘first thought’ in the aftermath of the high-profile scandal was for her husband.

36-year-old Neil said he drew on the advice of his mother when deciding how to approach the matter which made headlines for weeks last October.

My mum always said, ‘People make mistakes in their lives. Don’t react, try to understand’. So that is how it always is for me.

Sure look, different strokes for different folks and all that.

We mean, the term ‘cheating’ is open to interpretation, and it is – and likely always will be – a hugely divisive issue, but where do you stand on it? 

What would your partner have to do in order for you to end the relationship?
