Elizabeth Edwards was on the Today Show this morning discussing her book. Of course many of the questions Matt Lauer asked were about her husbands affair. They are still married and it is obvious she still loves him. I am not sure if she has forgiven him. If your spouse cheated on you how would you handle it and would you give him/her?

If my husband cheated on me it would be over. I could not forgive him for that. I know that there are temptations but there is no excuse for hurting your spouse like that. Cheating is probably one of the most painful things I have felt and I think it would be worse being married then just dating. I haven't really seen much about Elizabeth edwards but I imagine she has to put on an act for everyone. Just like with Hilary Clinton and all the women that said they did stuff with her husband. I would have kicked my husbands butt, not stood by his side.

I agree - these public officials are probably the worst role models! My first husband cheated on me. I found the key to his g/f's house...I asked him why he had a key and he said, get this, in case she locks herself out...she lived 60 minutes away from us...did she have a neighbor she could give a key to..I didn't buy that story for one minutes..that night I packed his clothes in trash bags and told him to get out.

I don't think I could ever forgive my husband for cheating on me. It seems that marriage doesn't mean much to many people nowadays. When we said our vows it meant something. It's not just words. So, no probably not.

I couldn't either. I think when some people say they forgiveit's becaue they are getting something out of the marriage, like money. The woman may be afraid to be on her own so she puts up with it. No one should put up with anything.
