  • Normally the "better" marriage comes after ONE infidelity and he's remorseful. I'm not saying it can't happen after multiple infidelities but the probability decreases after each one. I personally wouldn't trust him if I saw a pattern. My x was like that and I finally gave up and left.

  • If it was one time it MIGHT work. Multiple times means "This ain't gonna work." RUN, GIRL, RUN!!!!!

  • Multiple? Get the hell out of there! He doesn't care about you! If he did there wouldn't be so many. Don't be a fool and continue to forgive and let him get away with it

  • It took me 10 years. Then, I divorced him. It should have only taken one time of him cheating. But one affair while dating wasn't so bad. It's the other 100+ women he was with that finally made me realize I not only deserved better, my kids deserved WAY BETTER, and that he wasn't ever going to change. Because he knew that after the first time he cheated and I took him back, he could just keep on doing it.

  • you can't rebuild trust, because you know deep down he's going to keep cheating

  • I lived with that. I never trusted him again and I left. He would not go to counselling and I went alone. I had to get strong enough to leave. Good luck to you.

  • Well my DH cheated on me a few times always got caught because well men are Dumb! The last time I tossed him out we lived separate for a year. In that time we did see each other off and on but he sought therapy and then we started together in June. The trick is you both have to want to fix it. He has to admit to what he has done and tell you everything. Go to counseling. Me and my DH are amazing now. They say everything happens for a reason and you don’t always know the reason why? But I can look back and know we are now where we are supposed to be and we are stronger then ever.
