  • I have.

    And I'm not sure I would do it again...its kinda a one time deal. So far, 3 years later, we're still going strong, and it is never brought up.

  • i honestly don't think I could but it's one of those things you never know for sure until you are in the situation.

  • NEVER!For me even if we were successful in counseling and really making an effort I think that the ugly truth of infidelity would always be there even if it isnt talked about. Once you lose the trust you there isnt much to build on, it doesnt seem real to me. I feel if take a cheater back you're basically telling them their behavior is acceptable.

  • In the past I would have (previous relationships) but not now. I know he left his first wife while she was pregnat because she cheated on him. That tells me he wouldn't tollerate it from me so I shouldn't from him.

  • It would depend on the circumstances. More likely than not my answer would be no. I treat my hubby well and would have a hard time accepting and forgiving and I wouldn't want him to stay if I could not let go of what happened.

  • I would especially if there are children involved. I guess I am kind of old fashioned. If you can forgive and make it all work... GREAT! If not and it is an unhealthy situation... MOVE ON! It is not good to stay married just for the children if it is an unhealthy situation. But a child is all the more reason to give it another try. Good luck!

  • My husband cheated on me the week before our wedding and i forgave him. Then recently he started cheating on me with our babysitter/my best friend. Surprisingly I forgave them both even though I know its still going on. If it were someone else that he were cheating on me with...I dont think I would.

  • No. If my husband would cheat on me with some skank he is not worthy of me and does not deserve me. He would find the locks changed and accounts drained.
