  • depends on the man and why he cheated. In the book WHY MEN CHEAT it says the number one reason they cheat is bc w didn't give them emotional satisfaction (so it's not about sex).

  • It depends on both people. I would never be able to trust my husband again if he cheated. I don't have that kind of forgiving personality. Most people fall under the "once a cheater, always a cheater" umbrella and that is just the type of person they are. They are not very faithful. But there are some people who have a slip and will honestly never do it again. They learn their lesson. For me, either way, I couldn't give a second chance. Life is way too short to always be wondering what he is doing, where is he, who is he with, etc.

  • I agree with what she says above me..

  • Yes you can. Takes work on both parts.

  • Yes you can. But it takes work from both of you. You cant dwell on the past EVER if you want things to work.

  • Personally, I could not (did not, have not)!!!.... The man I married (in 1989) I can no longer call him a husband’ at this point I do not know how to address the ‘man’ I married. However, you do what you feel in your heart that is right for (you) and your marriage…(if you are married). I do not trust my husband, after several affairs. However, I do respect him…
