Those who test digital boundaries may also cheat

Rep. Anthony Weiner's (D-N.Y.) flap on Twitter is raising questions about technology and relationships in the 21st Century.

Many married people that spoke to News 12 New Jersey say that they believe those who test boundaries online simply amount to cheaters.

One woman told News 12 New Jersey, "I think if I found out my husband was sending pictures to other women I would feel hurt, I would feel like somebody was cheating on me."

Psychologist Rosalind Dorlen says the detached simplicity in which digital images are sent doesn't ease a partner's hurt.

Dorlen calls it the "digital playing field," where the risks seem less, but as Rep. Weiner found out, the consequences are not.
