Do you believe once a cheater always a cheater?

I believe once a person has physically cheated they will always do it..In THAT relationship. They may date someone else eventually and not cheat..But I think they will cheat again in the relationship they already cheated in...JUST MY OPINION!

What do you think?

  • I agree that most of the time they will cheat again in that relationship. Maybe not in every relationship they have though.

  • Yes I believe once a cheater always a cheater. Never known one person to prove me wrong.

  • Nope, not at all... I think it comes down to commitment. If they weren't committed when they cheated, and become committed later, they can and will change.

  • Yes, I know somebody who forgave her husband for 7 times, that was the last one.

  • I see how a certain type of person would see cheating once as a 'well, I did it once and she kept me...' But I'm not sure that is true in every single case. Though I have never been trough that.

  • I cant really say, I did cheat on my fiance (at the time) when our relationship was falling apart.. I told him the next day, and he forgave me.. We are now happily married going on 4 yrs and still faithful.. So I guess if someone cheated on the person more then once then ya they might always do it, but since I did it, I have NEVER done it again..

  • @ mommyoftwo388 going to prove you wrong right cheated in my first marriage (started because he did) marriage was done by then...Have been married to my second husband now for 20+ and have not even thought about it..So I would say I agree with Tiger tatted1

  • ummm no i don't believe that....a major % of the time the answer is yes but not always...(i.e. i cheated on my ex-husband but only because he was a crackhead and would stay gone for a week at a time and i was lonely) but i never ever ever have or will cheat on my s.o whom i have been with 5 yrs.he is a good man and i have no desire 2 cheat.

    Answer by jess80 at 8:52 PM on Sep. 27, 2010

  • No I don't believe that. I once cheated on my boyfriend, because I was too afraid of hurting his feelings to break up with him. Then I met my SO, and we have been together 2 years and not once has the thought of cheating ran through my mind. I believe that if the right person comes along, they can change a cheater into a committed person.
