Treason [cheating] should be as illegal as domestic abuse.... That's stupid. Not everyone reacts to it the same way, while pretty much any human reacts the same way to physical abuse. Something comparable to mental abuse has more chance to be ruled as illegal, but cheating isn't necessarily mental abuse, at least not for everyone.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
