When I said that the "marriages" in question weren't marriages but frauds, what I wanted to get across was that the issue of sexual infidelity was the *least* of the transgressions they ought to feel guilty about. What does it really matter whether Michael slept with other women while "married" to Elena, when his *real* crime against her was the entire so-called marriage itself?

In my opinion, that's the ethical isuue that should have been keeping him up at night. Adultery/sexual betrayal pales in comparison. To me, focusing on adultery in this situation is like criticizing a burglar for leaving your window open after he hauled off your stereo.

I suppose I would approach Paul's situation the same way. He definitely committed adultery with respect to Corinne, but really, in the larger scheme of things, isn't that kind of a petty concern given the far worse things he did to ruin her life? Frankly, she'd have been *lucky* if adultery was the only sin he committed against her.

As for Madeline and Charles, well, maybe she unknowingly committed adultery while unaware that he was still alive. But that's really nothing, ethically, compared to *killing him*, is it?

I guess what I'm suggesting is that sexual infidelity doesn't strike me as terribly important in the LFN universe, when the characters had far worse sins to answer for.
