I agree!! The writers need to realize that there are other ways for people to vent -- they don't need to hop in bed for passionate meaningless sex with someone else besodes their marriage partner!! Rick and Beth could commiserate with one another by TALKING -- why did they have to have sex???? I am so glad that Josh and Cassie haven't done that yet, and HOPE they don't!!! Come on writers -- forget the illicit sex story lines and we'll all be happier. I too have been watching since I was a child when my Mom watched faithfully!! I got totally hooked when nursing my first baby -- he always ate at 2 p.m.!!
