Deployment Sex Pacts? What the Hell?!?

A combined time of over 20 years as a soldier and military contractor. Multiple TDY's and Deployments (including two to Iraq). And in all that time I've never cheated on my wife...
"Comes with the territory?" Seriously, what the hell?

Should military marriages include a 'deployment sex pact'?
By Diana Falzone

With long, repeated separations between military husbands and wives, extramarital affairs become the norm for many couples. So, it was not shocking when news broke about four-star retired Army Gen. David Petraeus’ indiscretions. Nor is it surprising that Brig. Gen.Jeffrey Sinclair’s wife, Rebecca, is standing by her man amid sexual misconduct allegations. She claims her husband participated in consensual sex.
Most civilian women would not defend their husband’s infidelity.  But for the military wife, cheating practically comes with the territory. And rather than ignore the lusty elephant in the room, some military couples have created their own defense against infidelity: the so-called deployment sex pact.
