I always say it would be over but until it happen you never know. My husband cheated on me for the 1st 6 months of our relationship, and I stayed. To this day I wonder why, and with our relationship rocky right now I wonder even more. I do know that I would take some time to really think about how it would effect mine and my daughters lives.

Quoting funwit5:

My husband has cheated on me ;( I let town we seperated for 6 months but got back together now were stronger then ever I know our bond is stronger "fool me once shame on u fool me twice shame on me"

Sometimes it makes the marriage stronger. Been through that and our love is now closer and stronger then it has been in years. I have been with my husband 23 years been married 21, and I thought as other women have, if it happens to me I'll leave, well sometimes if something is missing you may not know until something like this happens. You forgive and move on. Of course trust build up again is a big thing that happens over time, but love can withstand a hurricane if it's strong enough.

2 reasons - that would put a halt to my marriage (even this far in) - Abuse or Affair.

I always believe that things DO happen for a reason-even if it is not entirely evident from the gate. So, that being said, I can't answer, I'd have to see how it played out. Maybe it would make the marriage stronger if it really was a one time mistake, maybe I would be too evil and angry to be married to any longer. I could see that happening with me. I could see the affair really just being a mistake and me getting so evil about it, that I would understand if he left, but I just don't know.

I truely believe my marriage could survive regardless of where.  It wouldn't be easy but we would both have to want it and keep God the focus of our union.

Location doesn't matter. I have forgiven but I'm not sure if I can forgive again! I love my husband with all my heart and I believe that he does too..hell sometimes I believe he may love me more lol But I really can't say until I get iin that situation.

Well, I believe in my heart an affair would be the end to my marriage.

An affair is extremely hard to get over. I know this from experience.

I don't want my marriage to simply "survive". I expect my husband to have respect for us and the marriage and for us to make it thrive. If a spouse is unfaithful the marriage is not what it should be. I respect my husband so I would never cheat on him. I respect myself, so I demand the same of him. So far we are happy and going strong. Just celebrated 15 years over the summer!
