  • I forgave my husband for getting oral sex from another woman. I love him to much to lose him just because he made a mistake. He knows he did wrong and feels terrible about it. So I forgave him and our relationship is stronger than ever because of it.

  • Cheating boyfriend -- that count?

    Cliff's Notes Version: met, fell in love, had baby, he had brainfart & thought the grass was greener, left for hoochie, I let him go, moved, got a job, went on with my life as best I could. (VERY depressed, but functional)

    Months later, he calls sobbing --- the old "I f*cked up & want my family back" thing. We talk, I agree to meet with him & TRY to see what we can piece back together (if anything) on MY terms...and COMPLETELY & ONLY on MY terms, he agrees. Moves down here, goes through pure hell for a good long time (I can give you details of what I mean by "hell" in private if you like...), and eventually regains my trust.

    Fast forward to today: We now have 4 kids & just had our 7th anniversary. Haven't even had an arguement in 3 yrs.

    So yeah ---- it's possible, but SOOOO many factors go into it. Every situation is unique.

  • i forgave my husband who had an affair with a friend of mine and then again an emotional affair with a girl at work. we have been together 22 years and i just layed it out to him as to what i felt what I thught was unacceptable and he stopped and apologized more than once. I know he doesnt want to loose hi family but I think he knows I will not tolerate him cheating ever again. People make mistakes, its how they ahndle those mistakes that makes a difference. Are they sorry bcause they loe you and really care? or are they sorry because they got caught? Hopefully it was just bad judgement.

  • My SO cheated on me three times.
    The final third time she cheated with one of my "friends"
    i told him you either shape upor ship out and the next time you talk to me in through a lawyer over visitaion rights for our daughter.
    so far things have been good, but we're going to counsellnig too.

  • I was cheated on by my then fiance now husband...I was NOT happy about it at all, but now we are married and have been married for 5 yrs. Its ok, but I will not lie, sometimes I end up thinking about what he did to me and wish I had just left then, because I hate thinking about him with someone else. I am just very emotional and I gave him ALL of me, for Gods sake I was about to leave my parents for him because my parents did not like him at all....We have a VERY long past...but I have forgiven him but cannot and will not forget it. I guess its what YOU make it.
