Remembering that although we are enjoined to forgive others just as He (She) forgives us, I would say this is highly dependent on who first does the cheating... Rsrs

Hi There,

Yes,I definitely would forgive her after breaking up with her.Dealing with someone you don´t trust can be really hard to bear.


See you.

If it's someone who has been cheating on me regularly, it would be difficult to trust in.
But if it's happened once, I think I should forgive.
Everyone makes mistakes, and there is definitely more than one way of cheating. Isn't just about to be with someone else.

It is definitely kind of harsh. At the sime time a half part of your mind says you might give her another chance, the other is convinced it won't happen. It seems like you are split. I have never gone through a situation like this, but I would not forgive, otherwise I don't know myself.

wow !

i really like those kind of questions, yesterday i've said to my girlfriend that i would forgive if she cheated on me.. BUT, and there is a HUGE BUT... i would not forgive any cheating under certain circumstances.. like if it was intentional, how many times, and with who she did it.. its important to measure every aspect of the betrayal so you can do the right think...


Most of all, you need to know who you're with.

I really don't know! Because my ex boyfriend forgave me, and I don't know. I just know if I'd do that if I'd really in love with that person.

Well, sure I would forgive her, but I gonna break up with her. I know... it sounds hard, but is hard to me imagine my girlfriend cheating me and I thinking she is the only person who never would do it with me. :?

Deko,

I would like to suggest several changes in your English as indicated in the following rewrite.

"Well, sure I would forgive her, but I would break up with her. I know it sounds hard, but it is harder for me to imagine my girlfriend cheating on me, since I believe she is the only person who would never do that to me."

If you will please see if you can determine why I made the changes and let me know.

Thanks for letting me try to help you.

Well thanks, I've discovered my mistakes.

Please consider this rewrite as being grammatically correct and and much more proper and respectful, especially in mixed company.

"I depends, in the past I would try to get even maybe even physically, but now I think I would try to be understanding, and stay calm, cool and relaxed. I would try not to do anything that I might regret in the future, and try to calmly discuss the situation in an adult manner."

Please let me know what you think.

This is one of the most serious, difficult and frightening situtations that a person can find one's self in, and one that I do not believe anyone can honestly answer beforehand, especially if they have never been in this position. So my reply is based on what I know about myself, my wife and our relationship, therefore at this point is just a statement of opinion and not fact.

To quote the Bible, To err is human, to forgive is devine. Being a Christian and a mature adult I would like to believe that I would calmly discuss the situtation in detail with my partner, and then if I was convinced that it was a one time thing for which she was truly repentant, I would forgive, forget and try to repair the damages. However if it was not a one time thing or would likely be a recurring thing then I would forgive, but would try to end the relationship without animosity, while striving to maintain a civil though distant relationship.

Words you may want to look up to help improve your vocabulary are underlined above.

No, because, it is in her behaviour, so it is a psychological act she'll repeat it over again, actually the society in the ancient time invented the wedding, that was interesting in getting marriage for the religion in Italy, benefiting the church, so the rightnow society and religion have been perpetuating wedding until our rightnow decades.

Ow, without loving anyone for now, I'm able to say that I wouldn't forgive a cheating partner, but for who really loves someone else, just break up without knowing the motives doesn't make any sense, it's unreasonable, unless for myself.

I would try to understand the situation, if the cheating is almost an habit, there's nothing to do, break up is the unique decision, however, else, I mean, if it occurred just once our twice, perhaps there's chance to forgiving, since as a friend of us told before, anyone is perfect, this conversation that who loves isn't able to cheat is good but not completely right, due to the fact that men and women are imperfect and subjected to weakness. Love is a good feeling, but isn't incorruptible, it's possible to love and in the same time make a mistake, like cheating a lovely partner. :?

I firmly hope that I will never be cheated by a partner, but if it occurs, it's important to have courage to face the situation...

Probably not. It's a tough question though..

I guess I wouldn't be able to handle a relationship knowing that my partner had already cheated on me.. and probably, if we keep the relationship, soon or later I would cheat on her.
