How would Aristole’s resolve issues in marital infidelity?

QUESTION
How would Aristole’s resolve issues in marital infidelity?
I have a an essay question and I really don’t know how to answer it.

ANSWER
Obviously you haven’t adequately studied Aristotle or you’d know how to answer it. Being handed an answer is not equivalent to education. All I will tell you are the following quotes attributed to Aristotle:

1) “Reason employed in achieving happiness leads to moral and intellectual virtues”.

2) “A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person”.

3) “The state of mind of wrong-doers is that they believe a thing can be done by them either, without being found out, or believing they could escape punishment if found out, or that it would be worth the punishment.”

4) “Genuine happiness lies in action that leads to virtue, since this alone provides true value and not just amusement.”

And you might have a look at his “Table of Virtues and Vices” here: http://pages.interlog.com/~girbe/virtues…

Now can you deduce the answer?
