I was wondering! How many chances should a partner give to his significant other if after so many heartaches from infidelity that has been experienced she still stood by his side and love him tenderly? Please share your opinions. Thanks!

i stand very firm on the fact that once someone cheats i will not ever give them another chance. i feel that if they loved me like they said that they did they would have never cheated. i also think that if you take them back after they cheated that they will think they can do it over and over and you will be there every time after they get caught again. i know some people dont agree with the saying but i do "once a cheater always a cheater" people (men and women) who cheat do not deserve to be able to go back with the person they cheated on because they are undeserving of the love that the person gave them and they took for granted.

That is very well said. I admire your strong stand with the topic. We'll you have a point there. And I always hear that saying" once a cheater always a cheater." Maybe it's true. But is there no room for change? What if the person really want to change for the better, for good? But anyway, I guess its just a matter of choice.. Thanks for replying Darkestraven!

that is a good question but what would have made them go out and cheat in the first place, instead of saying to the person that they were with that they are feeling like being with someone else? if they really wanted to change and be a better person then hopefully they would learn as well from not being taken back by the person they cheated on, even if i loved them with all my heart i would have lost that trust with them and without trust there is no true love and it would be heartache every day thinking what they were doing if say they had to work late or came home late.

I agree with you Dark! It's very painful to think that the one you love had cheated on you. Yes why did he do it anyway if he loved you? He was tempted? I guess its easy to say I accepted your apology and then lets start all over again. But the scars of the hurt made would always be there and as long as you didn't fully forgive him you will never find peace in your relationship because you will have a tendency to doubt his faithfullness.

as for me, I believe in the saying "everybody deserves a second chance." so whatever the reason of the heartache I am willing to give until second chance. I will let him change or straighten out what he have done wrong. once he committed same mistake then that's the time to say good bye. if one really loves you, he/she will not do anything that will hurt you again.

Yeah right I guess a second chance is enough for a relationship to work well again. More than that I can say that you have been blinded by love. And it will do no good to you. You will just end up hurting again and again.

Well, for me I can give many chances to one I love no matter how many times he will hurt me because i love him so much and I don't want to live me.. But of course if he don't want to stay with me already then I will set him free for him to be happy.. I can't be selfish to him.. Of course, i will also think his happiness not only my own happiness.. It is more painful for me if he stay with me then he isn't happy after all.. I am willing to give him 2nd, 3rd, 4th chance for as long as he asked for it and I can see that he is sincere of asking for another chance.. I know that it is really hard to forget of something that really breaks your heart but I think for the one you love no matter how it is difficult still you can forget it just to be with him 'cause that what makes us happy, right?? Actually, my boyfriend didn't hurt me so I still didn't give him a second chance .. But if ever he will hurt me I can easily give him a second chance and forgive him since I do really love him and I want him to stay at my side.. I don't want to lose him in my life.. But I think it will not happen 'cause I know that my boyfriend won't hurt me.. I am sure with it.. Maybe, he might hurt me but not like having an affair or living me.. I know him so much and he is not that kind of person.. Anyway, happy posting..

Asking for another chance just means that he is exerting effort for you to be back with each other again and has realize something he never wanted to lose. So if after he do it again and again you still love him, why not give him another chance? After all its your life. If you're happy with it then go with it baby!...But anyway, I am glad that you are happy with your boyfriend. I pray that everything will be fine with the both of you. Thanks!Happy mylotting!

It's very nice to know that there are still martyrs in our modern world today. I just can't imagine you hurting just for the sake of love to survive. We'll that only defines love is blind. Happy mylotting!

Hello mylotting friends!!! This depends on the your type of relationship one has with his/her partner and of course on the type of person. I think one chance is enough for a person to re-think his/her actions. Happy mylotting!!1

This is a question better answer by each of us, just how many chances are we willing to give or how much are we willing to endure? A number to me right is not a right answer, we all have to make our choices and live with them.

When you love you dont really know how many chances you'll give. you just keep giving him chances til one day you just find yourself get tired of it, i guess
