I am having an affair with a Buddhist. I was looking into

Customer Question

I am having an affair with a Buddhist. I was looking into the teachings of Buddha, and this is strictly forbidden. It says this man should cast me away immediately. Of course, that would hurt me dreadfully. Also, high on the list of Buddha's teachings is compassion. So, when I am severely hurt by this man casting me away, where will compassion play in? Will he have to choose between these practices? What happens to the cast off?
