  • I did.

    My husband had a one night stand a little over 16 years ago.
    We have now been married 25 years.

    Our marriage is a better marriage than it was before. It is a happier marriage. We learned a lot and both came out the better for it. He became a better man and husband. I became a better woman and wife. We worked damn hard to rebuild our marriage (that was destroyed and at rock bottom long before he cheated) into a marriage that is : happy, healthy, loving and mutually fulfililling and satisfying.

  • I have never, nor will ever. It may be easier said than done, but at the same time- I used to be in an abusive relationship, and I wished he would have cheated on me because I would have left much faster (twisted thinking, I know- and eventually I did leave for the right reasons). "Emotional" cheating is one thing, but if a man does it physically- he'll probably do it again...and if children are involved, it shows an enormous lack of respect. If someone isn't getting what they want or need in a relationship, they should communicate that- not go look for it somewhere else. I've seen women stay (friends, family members) and it only made the relationship worse b/c they never fully trusted their spouse. If you can't trust them, why be with them?
    Btw- not a dumb question, it happens...

  • probably more women have then realize it- there's a lot of men that have cheated and their So/spouses didn't know about it.

    I go with the old dear abby /ann landers saying-

    "are you better off with him or without him? "

  • Yes, I'm still with him for the moment. I don't want to be here. I want out.

  • yes i did stay with my partner,but sometimes it is very hard,you just have to stay strong and positive and give it time to trust him again.

  • Yes, I'm still here but it's torture every single day. Most days I can't stand to look at his face without wanting to rip his gotti and his lips right off it!
