When in a relationship, at what point does flirting with someone else become blatant disrespect?

Various photos were taken of him dancing closely with another woman on the dance floor. This news follows a previous photo scandal that hit the media waves late summer, where pictures were taken of him close and personal with a pretty blonde woman.

An Honest Big Flirt!
First, I will play devil’s advocate. Some of us are just flirts at heart. Intentions are innocent. Our partners know who we are. We don’t just flirt behind their backs but also flirt while out with our spouses. There are times we enjoy festivities separate from our spouse. We take pictures and engage in dancing with platonic friends of the opposite sex while at work functions, birthday parties, receptions, and just hanging out with our ride or die crew. When spotted cutting a rug on the dance floor by an outsider, that hater runs to your mate sharing what he or she saw. Your spouse simply replies I know all about my Boo, acknowledges that his or her mate is an enormous flirt. They claim their personalities are just jovial in nature, their good-spirited heart and ease of flickering compliments to everyone gravitates attention. The spouse is confident in their union and news from outsiders does not sway their mood one bit. No insecurities exist, they are the one and only who captivates their partner’s heart. The spouse acknowledged, accepted and loved this aspect of their mates personality prior to marriage and is aware that it is part of their DNA makeup that molds him into the person he is today.
Where The Line Crosses Into Disrespect:
When the harmless compliments, gregarious engagements with the opposite sex becomes disrespectful is when more than one onlooker and/or the subject of your teasing complains that your actions are offensive. If you flirtatious acts are perceived by others as classless, rude and vulgar it is now discourteous to your partner. Your philandering needs to be toned downed or come to a halt.
Being a public figure, unfortunately the bar is raised. All of your actions are more scrutinized and controversy is deemed newsworthy. While there is nothing wrong with harmless flirting, you have to be aware that everyone is watching. Grinding on the dance floor with an extremely attractive person with no room in between the two of you half way across the globe from your mate, is not likely going to be perceived in the best light. This becomes exponentially a divisive issue, if pictures surfaced to the media six months prior coupled up with another exceptionally striking individual. And subsequent of the picture release the eye-catching being confirmed you grabbed a typically off-limits body part.
Your flirtatious acts subjected your partner to unnecessary humiliation and scrutiny on your relationship. Loosely engaging in similar activities again, when the jury is still out on your innocence of your flirtatious intentions, is disrespectful. This extends beyond public figures, while everyone can acknowledge you as the office flirt and you honor your title as much as your title they actually pay you for; when your efforts become derogatory and provocative to others you are disrespecting your mate as well as the subjects to your enticing acts.
Flirters Proceed With Caution!
Innocent expressions of amour and engaging in socially fun activities with someone else that is not your spouse is acceptable by many. But there is a thin line between flirting and disrespect. So Beware! Flirters engage at your own risk! Hopefully you can decipher between expressing a compliment, engaging in fun picture-taking and dancing from aggressive, serial complimenting, lewd behavior and distasteful frisk.

The engagement follows a public divorce two years prior from ex-husband and Fall Out Boy frontman Pete Wentz. Congratulations to the couple.
I believe when the love for each other feels right, why wait a year or two to date to know what you already know about the person in the first few months? If the two of you both enjoy each other’s company, recognized each other’s positive and not-so-positive attributes, and still want to have your mate’s back, what else needs to be discussed. I have this debate with my girlfriends all the time. When the timing and maturity is in sync a man becomes ready to find his mate. When they do, provided they are not jaded, they do not waste time. I remember dating a guy from college, maybe a couple of years too long, my aunt approached me and asked what the heck I was doing. For my aunt, my uncle asked for her hand in marriage within six months of dating. She explained to me that it does not take that long for a man to figure out if he wants you in his life. If it does, he is dealing with his own personal issues or there is something about you that causes hesitation. However, more times than not, it is not about you. She told me to move on and let him deal with his issues, when he is ready he will come back. If he is lucky, you may still be there or someone else will acknowledge and appreciate your worth. And sure enough, I did find a man shortly after my break-up who was ready and wanted me to be a part of his life. He put a ring on it within nine months and discussions began with his family a couple of months prior. So I am a firm believer, if it feels right go with the momentum. Sometimes the hesitation brings a lot of unnecessary wounds. I wish much success to Evan and Ashlee’s engagement.

Fortunately, Khloe has a large close-knit family to shower her with love and support. Through social media outlets, Khloe has kept herself busy promoting the family’s businesses and her own brand as well as keeping in the company of family.
It has been well over a year, since the decision was made to dissolve my marriage. Now reflecting there is a cycle that I went through and my journey continues. I was faced with various emotions. This included the feeling of failure, understanding and acceptance of my situation, followed by empowerment, relief, coming to terms with my new reality, depression, regaining independence and seeking happiness from within. While, I am comfortable with my status and have move forward with my life the various emotions resurface from time to time. This could be sparked by life’s hurdles living as a divorcee. The journey in accepting a break-up, divorce or demise of any relationship that is a major part of your life can linger. However, moving on and not allowing the past to define you is imperative. When a situation does not work out, it was not meant to be. Cherish the positive memories and use the experience to build you into a stronger person. Grow from past mistakes and decisions and help to empower your independence as a happily divorcee.
