Reality is rarely black or white, mostly nuances of gray.
This is true, but...
Most of the time this is used to demonstrate evidence of cheating (prior to the separation) *in front of the judge* just to lower the other party credibility and gain more money.
...there are cases where the true color of things should be assessed :-)
Specifically: when you are in front of a judge you should either say the truth, or have your lawyer claim that the issue is irrelevant and say nothing.
In this specific case, if it is relevant that you were in place X you should be true about it.
Or if it is irrelevant that you were in place X, and the other party is just trying to show that you are a liar, well: is it relevant that you are a liar? Would your soon-ex-spouse be legally entitled to more money because you, as a liar, made his-her life more painful?
Once again, if it is irrelevant just have your lawyer state it. But if it is relevant, in my book you are required to openly state "yes, I have been a liar to my spouse" and not childishly complain that there are facts that can prove it :-)
And BTW, your personal comment is priceless, it definitely made me smile (in a positive way!) :-D As a side-footnote, you could even not imagine it but "know it indirectly" because you see other people cheating, maybe your coworkers, and you see the mess it involves. So your Mary can still trust you even if you don't have to "imagine" :-)
Ok, enough LWN-offtopic for today!
