I dont think the people who wrote those songs were glamorizing
adultery......perhaps they trivialized it because it happens to be a fact
of life and it was a way to  accept it.  Shit happens and the people who
feel it deeply, write songs about it. (among other outlets) When they wrote
those songs, I dont believe they were thinkng of who's gonna accept it.
They were writing what they felt....and I'm glad they did.
