What if you got to choose which society to live in?

Society 1: You get
a. A lifetime job of doing the same thing with the same employer and not having to perform to keep your job.
b. Extra marital affairs are not considered cheating on or being unfaithful to your marriage partner.

Society 2: You get
a. A fluid job market were you may have multiple partners over your lifetime where each rewards you according to your performance.
b. It is expected that a marriage is a lifetime monogomous commitment or - at least - while married having a paramour is cheating.

Somehow, I prefer Society 2 [typo corrected!], and I believe it is the healthier society, less jaded, more optimistic, and more productive. But may be that's just the prudish adventurous Anglo-Saxon in me.

I don't really think it matters what the society thinks about extra-marital affairs, although stupidly some try to legislate it. All that matters is how your spouse or partner feels about it. If it's OK with them, why not? If it isn't, then why put the one you supposedly chose and care for through such misery?
