Jon SHOULD Cheat on Kate

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

It's rumored that Jon, of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" fame, might be having an affair. All I can say to that is good for him -- he should have started having one sooner.

Jon Gosselin

Radical Mommy: I know that this might be a controversial attitude, but hear me out before you start banging your drums and calling me an idiot -- again!

I think that it would be good for Jon and Kate's marriage if he were to have an affair -- in fact, I think it would solve a lot of their problems and actually make their marriage better. Why? Let me tell you.

If Jon was having sex with another woman, then maybe Kate wouldn't have to spend all day looking after that litter of kids of theirs and then have to "put out" for Jon, who obviously drives her crazy a lot of the time, at night. Instead, she could relax, take a bath and go to bed unbothered. I mean, I only have one kid but that sounds like freaking heaven to me.

If Jon was having sex with another woman, he wouldn't need/want to have sex with Kate -- and most likely have to nag her into doing it. I say "nag" because there is no way in hell that Kate is throwing on lingerie and begging for S-E-X at night after looking after eight children all day long. Instead, he could have sex with another woman and enjoy a relationship free from resentment with his wife. This would not only benefit Jon and Kate, but it would certainly benefit their brood who wouldn't have to watch the couple bickering all the time.

Now that I'm thinking about it, maybe Kate should start getting some on the side as well. After all, what stay-at-home mom couldn't use a little spice and excitement in her life? Maybe "getting it" from the mailman (or whoever) once in a while would help her loosen up and enjoy her husband and children more.

Do you agree with me? Do you think I'm an idiot? Either way, visit me in the momlogic community and tell me what you think.

I think if it was just sex (on his side and his mistress ) than what you are saying makes sense but since it is almost never just sex, since cheating has an emotional side to it you have to understand the major damage cheating can do to a family.

I think this is a horrible idea. This is what is sooo wrong with people these days. Rather I want to “put out” with my husband or not, I certainly don’t expect my husband to go somewhere else for it. I have a couple of kids and I still enjoy having sex with my husband. I don’t look at it as another chore I have to do but as a way to feel closer to my husband and to stay connected. If you and your spouse are having problems bringing someone elso into the picture will not help. Marriage should be a commitment that is held in a very high regard and even though real life at times is hard, if most people could realize that kids are small for a short time and then they grow up and move on and if you want your marriage to survive past kids, you need to make it a priority and remember that first you are husband and wife and next parents. I would NEVER recommend that someone destory thier partner trust in them just to “get alittle”.
Shame on you for suggesting that. I hope you have better sense in your own relationship.

Jon and Kate are very naive. They shouldn’t be shocked or surprised by all the mounting and negative publicity they are now reading on countless websites around the world. Kate thought she was running the show and everything else, but she hopefully now realizes that SHE has an “expiration date”,just like all reality shows do. The pendulum started out in a very positive place for Jon and Kate, yet it’s now swinging in a very negative direction and it’s only just begun.If Jon and Kate are wiser than they appear, they will walk away from the “reality show” life and create a new life that is based on “reality” in it’s actual definition. Jon and all the children would embrace privacy, alone time, schoolmates coming over to play, bonding with relatives and friends that they rarely, if ever see any longer.Kate, on the other hand, will have a very hard time adjusting to reality.Unlike the rest of her family, she loves being in the spotlight-center stage.She may need some very extensive counseling to help her discover what’s expected in being a wife and a Mother.Kate’s got alot of work ahead of her once the cameras finally leave (like they always do).

I am truely appalled that you would suggest that an affair would help a marriage. I think so many people do not take marriage seriously these days and this type of thinking is part of the problem. When you get married, you have made a committment to that person. How sad that you think the way to help your marriage is to bring another person into it. What is even sadder is that you have no desire to work on the marriage to make it happy again. I know that if one person in the marriage is not happy about something it is not the fault of only one person. A marriage is a partnership and should be treated as such. Not saying only one is at fault. I must say I think I have finally had it with this site, it saddens me that a site called Mom Logic, would even think of posting something like this. There is no LOGIC in that type of thinking.

Is this supposed to be a serious article or some kind of facetious joke? Either way it is so offensive that I’m having a hard time remaining objective. Does anyone wonder WHY we have a 50% divorce rate in this country? Whatever happened to love and fidelity and “death do us part?” The sooner these immature people (and YES, I’m talking to the author) realize that marriage is a serious committment and about making the other person happy. You then are happy because your spouse is happy. It works—the problem is we have a whole bunch of immature, selfish people who are only concerned with making themselves happy and getting what they want. As far as jon and kate go, I read the article and I don’t believe for a minute that he’s having an affair—this is just jealous people with too much time on their hands. I’m sure they’re just fine, and speculating about their sex life at the end of the day is just invasive and gross…GET A LIFE!

Have you ever watched the show? They are both stay-at-home parents now, living off the show’s revenues. And they have a staff of (unfilmed) nannies and cooks to help them.

Plus, Kate totally wears the pants in that family. The way she belittles him on camera is just awful. I wouldn’t blame him for wanting a little comfort elsewhere if he WAS cheating.

cyndi March 6, 2009, 1:27 PM

Yes, I’ve watched the show. I’m not commenting on the dynamic between jon and kate. I’m taking offense at the stupidity of the author of this article advocating that people should have affairs to “help” their marriages. What a stupid premise. And to imply that he should be “allowed” to cheat because she’s bossy is ridiculous. Marriage includes VOWS, people. Don’t take them if you don’t mean them.,…

I found this site for the first time today and unfortunately, will not be coming back. This article is PRIME example of the degradation of society. We wonder why the divorce rate is so high, there is so much more violence, drug abuse and suicide. It’s because the world has lost its values and is apparently reverting back to an “intelligent” cave man era. Oh, why doesn’t he marry the mistress! Then he can have a wife for TV and a wife for sex! Hope the editor of this site is happy with this author.

sidny March 6, 2009, 2:46 PM

are you so stupid that you cant think about those children? my gosh.

A.C.L March 6, 2009, 3:57 PM

bullshit hes not even having sex he just went to a party big deal…. i mean shes always nagging him what do u expect

KK March 6, 2009, 7:26 PM

These rumors are just getting so out of control. It’s pretty obvious that these college co-eds and supposed witnesses just want to see their name in a magazine, even if it is just a stupid tabloid no one in their right mind should take seriously. Give Jon a break. All he did was pose for a couple of pictures with fans. Unfortunately, these fans were not very nice people it looks like. I feel bad for Jon. Leave him and his family alone.

JessOC March 6, 2009, 7:57 PM

I agree :) She is awfully mean to him and borders verbally abusive. Its clear he did not want this many children and im suprised he does not resent her more. With that said im suprised to see everyone say “not so perfect” if you watch the show it looks like he is in a living hell-! The way they sit on the chair while being interviwed their body lang is terrible, they dont even touch. I think they would all be happier divorced. her kids are going to resent her mean crazy ways…just wait!

angela March 7, 2009, 2:31 AM

You have got to be joking me. So you think it’s okay for a husband and father of eight to go parading around with other women. Even Jon (if this is really true) would know that what he’s doing is wrong. But you think it’s a GOOD idea. Clearly, there is something wrong with you. I would like to see if you still feel the same way once your husband starts screwing other women because he doesn’t want to bother you with sex.

Sarah March 7, 2009, 4:27 PM

How disgusting. Walk in her shoes everyday and see if you “mistreat” your partner. It’s difficult with one child, let alone eight. And frustrating as hell when one parent does most of the work. If you think she is abusive I would hate for you to come to my house. Please.

Angela March 9, 2009, 12:51 AM

I agree with Sarah. With eight kids, it’s got to be stressful and even with “unfilmed” nannies and cooks, there is a LOT of work left. She is overwhelmed, he is overwhelmed. She is a regular mom and carries most of the work. Kate shouldn’t have to have sex with her husband just because he wants it, it’s a two person act, it should be a positive experience for both or it will just make them worse off.

HG March 9, 2009, 2:02 AM

Did you drink a pot of extra strong stupid before writing this article? Encouraging adultery isn’t “controversial,” it’s immoral.

Illyria March 11, 2009, 8:59 PM

So Jon should cheat on Kate, sleep with another woman, and then pretend everything’s okay.
Uhmm, buddy. She had eight kids with that seed of Chuckie, and suddenly it’s entirely her responsibility to take care of all of them? What kind of world are you living in?
Cheating doesn’t get rid of resentment. If Jon really is that horny, he should just wack off to porn - or buy an artificial vagina.

Candace March 13, 2009, 8:20 PM

see this is whats wrong with the world now adays i hate people that think its okay to cheat…its not! i would rather my husband please himself by him self when he’s feeling horny or lonely not to go sleep with somebody else especially when there is children involved. i hated being a only child with no father, it messed my life up alot. i told myself i would never do that to my kids. me and my husband fight alot but we still love each other and when we do have sex its great. i just hate the way the world is, so much sexuality so much vulgarity and violence.

i hope they don”t break up!!!!even if kate is mean and think she knows it all!!!!

Anonymous March 13, 2009, 10:35 PM

I’m ok to be single… I don’t need sex that much… but then I have to… maybe some people just really needs it…… so I have no choice….. I don’t really need it myself….
