It wasn't as bad as committing fornication, and it 'allowed him to remain single' into his 20s. One can imagine his mind working through a similar set of justifications as he repeatedly visited hookers behind his wife's back.
Exactly. TRA is full of analogies like this. Online cybersexting isn't as bad as fornication, at least I didn't meet her in a car park! OK then, have at it whilst your wife sleeps alone in the next room. He treated his cybersexting issues as it were something minor like watching an erotica movie. I'm sure ALL of your cybersexting partners are of legal age, XXXdating must certainly ask for govt issued ID when creating an account.
He's gotten worse the more he's been enabled. He didn't bludgeon any baby seals, didn't murder or rape anyone. He didn't separate families, except his own by fleeing to Thailand and prompting his wife to ask for divorce, but hey, that's his private business and none of yours. Besides he was ready to fight for her, despite her faults. And if he wanted to totally whore around, he would have went to Bangkok not Pa Tong. So please remember that.
I can imagine what it must have been like for his parents raising him. "Yes I did take £20 from dad's wallet. But sissy does this all the time and took £5 the other week, yet you aren't holding her to the same standard as I am. And there was also a £10 note in there that I didn't take. If I wanted to rip you off, I would have taken it all!"
Always confessing to a lesser crime and congratulating himself on not committing a worse one.
