Dear Poll: Would You Want Revenge?

Did any of you watch Cashmere Mafia last night? I'm still not sure how I feel about the show, but the issues these women are dealing with could happen to any one of us. If you've seen the first two episodes, you know that Juliet's husband has been having an affair. Once she found out his infidelity wasn't only happening on business trips, it was time for her to put the gloves on. She vowed to her husband that she was going to get even — she'd engage in her own affair, with one of their friends, and he wouldn't know when or with whom.

Enter Juliet's friend Caitlin. She took it upon herself to set her up with Bobby Walsh, an old business-school friend and perfect victim for her evil plot. Even though they only exchanged a kiss, I wanted to ask you how you felt about getting even like that? Sure, Davis made his bed so he's going to have to deal with the consequences if he wants to save his marriage, but do you feel that two wrongs make a right when it comes to matters of the heart?

i think revenge is necessary in this type of situation, but mind games and playing around sexually just isn't the way to go. even if you don't have an affair yourself, don't go telling your husband that you did (like Juliet), because then he will think less of you.

I think of revenge as leaving the bastard and making sure he realizes what he lost! The best revenge is to let him see you happy, successful,and with a hottie on your arm. That would be my only revenge. To stoop down to his level wouldn't make you feel better. You're being just as pathetic as he is. I just think that staying with a guy and playing high school games are a waste of time. Hit him where it hurts: 1) The wallet 2) The ego 3) Oh...Make sure you stay very hot and sexy!!!

I love this show, the clothes are great, the women are empowering, and the story lines hilarious. Revenge is a tricky thing, but in Juliet's case she's justified and did it in a way that wasn't trashy.

what good can come of it? Is it suppose to be all better after you whore yourself out just to prove to him you still have it in you? NO! break up with the guy and show him you're worth more!

No, no, no... Revenge should involve big rusty scissors. Just kidding. Kind of. I agree adding yet another person just makes it worse. And how would you like to be the person being used for revenge? Even if the person doesn't develop any real attachment and is just there to enjoy the sex, no one likes being caught up in other people's drama.

I would hope not, but I guess I won't know until I'm in that situation (which better never happen or I'll have to get my revenge on him ;-)

Heck no. I tried that once, and it didn't feel good. It just made everyone involved feel even worse. Don't do it! Move on instead, if what he did was really that unforgivable. And besides, the best revenge is success right? Also, like brandynicole pointed out, you instantly lose the moral upper hand. :p

i would love to get revenge, but what does that say about you as a person? do you want to be as horrible as he is? ppl make mistakes, sometimes they're big and life changing. but honestly, i don't even know if i would be able to take my own advice! you would literally die inside from knowing he did something like that~
Sure, I'd want revenge. But, if you want to save your relastionship, the worst thing you can do, is the same thing your SO other did to hurt you. This is what people call "history," that can often lead to the end of a relationship, even if the two people still love each other and want to work it out. When you get this type of revenge, you lose your moral ground to label what is crossing the line and inappropriate. Often times, the revenge affair is what truly brings the relationship to a "no hope" point, because it was absolutely pre-meditated, and done specifically to hurt the other person.

I might WANT revenge, but I doubt I'd ever do it...

In all honesty, I'd probably be tempted to pack up all my shit and leave while he's at work...and I would destroy all the nice things I did for him or got for him if my boyfriend/husband cheated on me. A physical manifestation of what he's done to our relationship. Sorry if that sounds deranged or whatever you want to call it, but oops "it was the heat of the moment".

I don't think it's a smart decison but I think sometimes in certain situations our anger takes control and people feel the only way to let someone know just how bad they hurt them is for that person to feel it for themselves. AND Pay backs are a b*tch

Of course revenge feels good, but it solves nothing.

As soon as I found out about the cheating, the relationship would be over. My revenge would be that I can get along without my boyfriend/husband just fine!

Of course not.

I voted "Yes" because I would certainly WANT revenge... I would never actually take revenge, because that's a pretty stupid thing to do, but deep down I would want it.

it may give you momentary satisfaction or happniess cuz you are responding to the anger your feel. but hte hurt will not be alleviated long term. i think u will regret it.
legalbeagle legalbeagle 9 years
but seriously i would never actually do that... people obviously would want to get him back, but its better to hold your head up high and get out of there before youre hurt even more or do something youll regret
