I didn't, but he did. No, our relationship did not end. He cheated because he did not understand that relationships are not 100% passion all the time, particularly after being together for awhile. Not to make excuses for him but in his family, when things got rough, everyone ran away rather than stay and work it out. Rather than doing the right thing and talking to ME about what he felt was wrong in our relationship, he just assumed it was doomed and it was over so he decided to stray ... and then hoped that I would end things because he didn't have the nerve to do it. He went to counseling (I did not) and learned a lot. It was a real eye opener for him on what a mature relationship is really like. That was a long time ago; I look back and can't even believe that it was him because he is such a different, better person now.
