  • Why in the hell would someone tell their DH / SO something like that unless they had been?!

  • I couldn't see myself every being unfaithful to my SO but if I were i think eventually i would tell the guilt would get to be to much...

  • I would never be unfaithful, but if i was the person who cheated i would come clean because i would want the same in return.

  • I would not simply act upon a whim. If I were truly serious about wanting/needing to be with someone else, this would be discussed before it actually happened.

  • Well personally for me that depends on how long ago it happened and what the situation was that drove you to be unfaithful? I personally have never cheated, but I have been cheated on MANY times and I would have preferred they tell me right away so I could have walked away then instead of me finding them in bed etc months later. If it was simply a one time thing then I would probably not tell, but if it was due to issues in your relationship etc then by telling you might get those issues addressed.

  • Cheating is cowardly I would leave before it came to that.

  • I would leave before the act...but if for some reason I acted on my urges I would tell immediately. Definitely before anything sexual went on between DH and I.

  • I believe in 100% open and honest marriage/relationships. If I were to be with someone else I would without doubt tell him and I am sure he would do the same. However, I don't consider it "cheating" if you are open about it... Just "extra."
