If you were cheated on, would you stay with the person you're with now? Does it matter whether you're married to them?

Hi smartie. No I don't. It is something I never forgive. All kind of treason is the worst thing for me. Be cheated by friends, co-worker, husband, wife is something that I can't understand. If something is wrong why not talk about it with the person? Why keep quiet and do things from behind? I hate this kind of attitude and action. Have a nice day.

I can be very loyal and faithful and somehow I expect people to be that way too. If I find out the love of my love cheated on me, I can still stay but surely there will be a strain.There will be less trust and respect. If it happens the second time, I will be gone. Cheating is a sign that the other person has no respect for the other so why stay.

I see no reason to forgive or forget someone who cheated. It means that the other person failed to communicate or wish to no longer be in the relationship. If the cheater thought to violate such as intimate trust, they clearly don't want to be in the relationship....otherwise, they would not do something so hurtful to their partner. In any relationship, the main focus should be to make the other person happy, and yourself. If you are not happy, then communicate why and how to resolve it. I believe there no valid reasons to "justify" or "explain" why someone cheated. If you can't be honest about something like that, I can't be with you. I have no leniency for cheaters. I don't cheat, because I don't like to be cheated.

No I don't think you could stay with someone who cheated on you as all the trust would be gone.If it was after say twenty years you would have to think twice before you split up and it was just the one mistake.But then you would have to think is this the first time they have been caught.

this is a tough one, it depend on lots of things. i've been through this before and the reason was understandable. but i did stay it took along time to rebuild the trust back up and forgive the person and move on with forgetting about it. but if it wasn't because of the kids i might have gone
