The danger of this however is that upcoming generation may see extra marital as being a good part of the married life. This will not be good for the society going by the consequences of the virus cloned as extra marital affairs. I have therefore decided to draw attention to the grave consequences, in case anyone is going to take the plunge into the extra troubles affairs, before I draw the curtains here, at least for now.
