There's nothing in my personal life making me ask this (thankfully), there is just a long running, semi-friendly debate on this at work. So I'm curious what other people's views are. The classic example: a spouse or significant other commits adultery/betrays their loved one, is found out, but uses "I was drunk" as an excuse. The confession (if there is one) boils down to "Yes, I admit that I did it but it wasn't my fault because I was drunk." The implication SEEMS to be, "I wasn't responsible for what I did, therefore you [the betrayed one] are wrong if you hold it against me." The same scenario applies with varying intoxicants but that's beside the point. Important: whatever the intoxicant was, the assumption here is that it was taken by choice, as is usually the case. IOW, no one was slipped a Mickey, unknowingly drugged, etc. The person who was unfaithful first chose to drink/whatever to the point of intoxication and impaired judgment. Not trying to spark any debates or flame wars so please limit your responses to Y or N...but I'll put up a Maybe/Depends option too for those who are undecided or have an alternate viewpoint you want to explain. Maybe you're seeing something I don't. Mods, if you think just asking the question is out of line, no hard feelings if you close and scrub but I think the fine folks of TSD can handle this with no problems. Thank you in advance.
