  • My mom used to believe that all married men cheat. (not true, btw). After listening to her I believed it when I was younger. My x cheated and I was relieved. I figured if all men cheat then it was over and we could get on with our lives. We did until he continued to cheat and he started hitting. It was the hitting I couldn't deal with. Many men do cheat but the ones who regret it and stop won't do it again. Everyone makes mistakes. Giving a second chance is reasonable.

  • I did once and I will never again. While I understand that counseling and forgivness works for some people it didn't work for us. I forgave my husband for an online affair in which he planned to leave us for a woman in another country. He made promises not to do it again and then ended up having another 4 affairs, one of which with a woman he is now married to only 3 months after our divorce. It is hell for our kids who hate her and I just can't get past how much he hurt our family on purpose. He is not a man of his word at all. I am now convinced, if he does it once he will do it again.

  • No, I would not be able to stay with someone who cheated.

  • When my ex-husband cheated on me I caught him in the act. I asked him if he wanted to save our marriage and he said no. I was willing to try though.
