  • No. I would feel bad for her and what she had to go through. I don't think I could forgive such a thing.

  • No, I would not lose respect for her. To the contrary, I think it would increase my respect for her. To forgive is a hard thing to do, especially in a situation like your friend's.

  • No, I'd be there for her no matter what. It is not up to me to dictate who she loves. If the cheating kept going on then I'd have some issues, but if it was a one time thing, I'd have to respect her feelings and keep my mouth shut.

  • No, and I think if you do you're not much of a friend. If it was a constant ongoing thing then maybe you'd have to understand that she needs your support and love..

    People have to make their own decisions in life, and yes... sometimes their own mistakes. You need to love and support her... Maybe now more than ever.

  • No. I think you need to support your friend no matter what she chooses to do.

  • No. I gave my husband (before we were married) a second chance, and I'm so glad I did. He hasn't proven me wrong. Just because someone cheats doesn't mean the marriage or relationship is over.

  • no, it would be none of my business. Forgiveness is a virtue not a sin.

  • No, I would think she is a much bigger person than I think I could be if put in that situation. I would pray she would not be hurt again by the same thing, and I would be there to support her no matter what.

  • No, thats between the two of them. If you are going to lose respect for friend for trying to save her marraige, then you probably arent a real friend any way.
