    I say once, MIGHT be forgiveable with a lot of trust rebuild.
    BUT, Im also of the mindset that if they were caught once there is probably several other times they werent cuz once a cheater always one.

    Depends on the time frame..i went thru a similar sitch,but that was5 yrs ago,sometimes people just need time to mature and figure things out. Nothing {good or bad} is forever,and you never know where life may take you,or for what reasons at the time,but in the end it was all for a reason!

    If you want to take him back, stipulate that you two go to counseling. Tell him, he will have to earn your trust and he will have to work VERY hard at it. Tell him, if at any time he stops working at it, it is over. Also, tell him, he must keep himself from any situation that could be strewed as cheating, i.e. being around a women if you are not present, even in a crowd.

    my dh cheated on me a little over a year ago, like 3 or 4 times with the same woman. she was soeone he used to date. well, i suspected something and i asked him if he was cheating ad he admitted to it. he has changed so much since then and he is a better man now, i know it sounds weird but i think almost losing me and his daughter made him realize just how bad he screwed up and how lucky he is to have us. so ya, if you love him enough and he willing to be put on a short leash(which you need to until you trust him again) then take him back with rules! by the way, my dh contracted chlamydia from the woman he cheated on me with, so make sure to get yourself checked!!!!! karmas a bitch for him uh?

    I don't care what anyone say's if he cheats then he doesn't care about you, maybe he might love you but he doesn't care if he hurts you and you don't need that.

    My ex cheated, and I took him back. It just kept happening. So I made him pack his shyt and go. He's cheated on almost every single woman he's ever been with.

    Its easy for women who have never been through something like this to just say pack up and leave. But if he left you once, and you took him back, whats stopping him from doing it to you again? Another person mentioned counseling. If you do decide to let him stay, counseling will help you two out in long run. Good Luck!
