I see posts all of the time about women who forgive their husbands for cheating (and in real life as well). I don't understand how people (men and women) can overlook a cheating spouse. I know women who's husband have cheated on the left right and sideways since they were dating and they still stay. I'm sorry. I just think that the people who put up with that just have low self-esteem and don't think that they will get some one else. To me, it just shows insecurity, like you're so afraid to be alone that you will stay with someone who treats you like crap. I don't see how you can trust someone that cheats on you.
And even if you choose to forgive him once, how can you let him continue to cheat on you and still stay with him? What are you teaching your children? That you should be a doormat for a man/woman who treats you like crap? Children look to their parents as role models. They look at the same sex parent and see how they should be and the opposite sex parent and see what they should look for in a spouse (in most cases). Why wouldn't you want your kids to see a woman/man who knows how they should be treated and doesn't let someone treat them like a doormat? Why wouldn't you want your kids to see that even adults have consequences for their actions. I just don't understand it.
To clarify, I am not just being a man hater. As I said, I am asking about both men and women. I am not trying to be rude to anyone. I just want to know how and why people choose to stay with their spouses cheat.
