If your partner cheated......

and you decided to take him/her back, would you demand they get an STD test or would you trust them if they said they used protection while they were cheating? How far should you trust a partner that's cheated on you?

I wouldn't take him back. Fullstop. My husband left his wife, & he had an STD test after, as she had been sleeping with other men during the marriage, & had chlamidia. Fortunately my husband hadn't picked it up.

i would def. demand an std test that's if i even took him back. i couldn't be with someone who was with someone else while he was with me. it would take a lot for me to take him back and trust him again.

wow, i totally understand, sometimes when you love someone u just want to work through the issues, and it's hard to let go of everything u've been through for a little fling. i have a hard time trusting my husband not b/c he cheated on me but b/c i've caught him in plenty of lies about where he goes. he'll say he's going to one place when he's going to a friends house that i don't like. just things like that, i'll have proof in front of his face and he'll still deny it. maybe u should cheat back and show him how it feels so he won't do it again realizing how much it hurts.

He's cheated twice? What are you doing! Once a cheater always a cheater. He won't stop. Get outta there!

Cheating is a no-no for me! I've been in that situation and regret having him back then. A cheater is always a cheater. Even if he used protection still it's disgusting. One mistake maybe but things will never be the same and the relationship will go nowhere.

Trust? Someone who cheats? Never. Heck, my husband and I got STD and HIV tests before we got intimate with each other as a course of courtesy for each other. If the louse cheated on me (I wouldn't take him back) I WOULD TAKE him to the doctor and MAKE him get an STD test. Probably make HER take a pregnancy test, too, if I could, to make sure there were no surprises...
