Heck no, if he got another person pregnant I don't think I would ever forgive him or trust him again. I would have to seperate from him. I feel sorry for the new baby of this person you are talking about.

I wouldn't stay with my husband if he did that to me. We already raised his three children and I am now raising one I had before we met. she is now 15 and I do not want to raise another child even if it is his with someone else. If my husband ever cheated on me, I wouldn't take him back. I have been cheated on way too many times in the past and I wouldn't put up with it again from anyone. I would have nothing against the baby, but I sure wouldn't condole what him and her did to me while we were married.

I just watched the show.Here are my two cents,this baby that was added is my child's sibbling,I better make sure that they grow together or at least be close , better than a child growing alone and be fed lies about the reality about this complicated situation.It's not the mistake of that baby,he's done nothing wrong.As for the adults,Good for Sherri that she got back with her hubby ,the second chance is given to both of them , for the cheater to forget and get back on the right track and for the forgiving to heal and forget .Sherri is a very strong woman with very strong beleives in forgiving ,it's the only way to heal beleive it or not.

This is a very difficult situation, on one hand husband has cheated , to live with such a person and then also adopting the child well in such a situation, I would have left the husband as it is really tough to forgive a cheater.

That is a hard question but I think I would take him back and would love the baby. That is how I would hope I would handle it any way.

No I don't think I could. I am way too jealous and wouldn't be able to handle looking at the child and being reminded of him cheating on me. If he just cheated I MIGHT be able to get past it, but not if her got the girl pregnant.

I think that it is a personal choice to stay with someone who had an affair wheather it be the husband or wife. I think that if there is love and it was a true mistake that in time it can be gotten over. There is a lot of work on the relationship that would have to be done but nothing is impossible. I hope that if faced with this issue I would be able to deal with it in a mannor that will benefit all.
