I no longer automatically trigger when I see infidelity portrayed, but it does bother me when it's made to seem sexy, fun, harmless, or the fault of the betrayed spouse. I tested myself by watching this movie.

It was not especially well made, but it was actually a pretty powerful cautionary tale. It started out at the MC, with a woman wanting to leave her M for another man. The MC tells a story. Goes through the slippery slope, etc, and how this woman's A ended up destroying her life. Big time.

I actually appreciate this kind of portrayal of infidelity. In reality most people regret their As and they have catastrophic consequences. Lives are destroyed, children are permanently harmed.

That is a message that should be out there.

I also do not trigger as bad with movies now. I haven't seen this movie yet, but I'll make a note to watch it. My WH#2 and I watched "Decendents" which was also about infidelity and it made me cry a little at the end, but I think it also showed my husband some of what I have been feeling. He hugged me when he saw me crying and said he was so sorry. The WH in that movie was so much like my husband and the fact that he never loved the OW but just used her. It would not be a movie I would recommend to the newly betrayed.

I rented the movie, and it is a good cautionary tale.
Truth be told No cheater really thinks about the consequence before.
