  • I'm confused, are you saying that because your husband's father cheated, that is why your husband cheated and now nothing can be done so you want advice on how to change it for the next generation?? Cheating is not hereditary. Your husband needs to man up and fix this for you and for your kids otherwise you need to leave him.

    Exactly right. Sounds like your FIL was allowed to get away with it, so your husband thinks he can. Model for your kids that he CANNOT.

  • the only way to change is to raise your children the best way possible. respect their SO's, wives, husbands and hopefully it turns out well for them. but no one can predict if they will cheat or not. you just hope for the best, and there is honesty and truthfulness in their relationships
