Cheating is the worst violation of trust in a relationship isd the mostly cause of many break-ups. Why do people cheat? And will saying "sorry" be enough to save the relationship? What is your point of view?

there is really no exact answer why people cheat, even some they don't really mean it maybe they are just afraid to admit to the person whose they've with that they fall for other girl/boy. Also sorry is not enough if that cheating cause a lot of pain, but the important thing to ask to yourself is "can you still give him another chance?" can you really forgive him for what he did to you. Is the love and respect that you felt for him is enough to be in relationship with him again. Go ahead and ask yourself... soon you'll find the answer in your heart!

many ppl Cheat bcoz they get bored from the same old partner , many ppl cheat bcoz they see there friends enjoying there lives so they also wanna enjoy in the same fashion.. Its True that Cheating is the worst violation of Trust.. and Saying sorry is not enough. I think in a Relationship "Sorry" word should not be used. rather try to gain the lost trust from your partner..

There is no such thing as SORRY after a partner who supposedly loved the other, has cheated. There is no excuse for the loss of control that cheating stemms from. I don't care what the circumstances were, there's just no excuse!! It makes no difference to me if it's the man or the woman who cheats.

People cheat because thre is something lacking at home. It is not always the partner's fault as some people cheat because they cannot deal with a relationship. I know this woman that has cheated on everyone she was with because she HAS to be the center of attention all of the time and as such one person will never be enough for her, that in no way is her partner's fault as it is all her's. But there are some that cheat because their partner is not affectionate enough, or they long for something else, and then there are also those that do not want to be with the one they are with yet they stay in the relationship since they do not want anyone else with their partner either. So as you can see to pinpoint one single cause for infidelity is impossable as the reason are as diverse as all of creation is. Will saying "Sorry" be enough?!? HELL NO!! Once a cheat always a cheat as the first time is always the hardest and it only gets easier from there. So hell no if a woman cheats on mee she can hit the f---ing door and get out!! Thank you for the interesting question and have a great day!!

Nothing can make up for cheating,at least not for me.Sorry is not enough,one has to ensure that it would never happen again and should be given a chance to make up for his/her mistake.

Yes this is the worst violation and NO saying sorry just doesn't cut it. How could you possibly trust again ? If you were really truly in love with your mate how could you bring yourself to doing such a violation. There's so much disease out there for that reason alone, I'd be done. Why do people cheat ? I don't know that's a good question because there's absolutely no excuse for it. AMEN !!!!!!

Not to me it isn't..I'd have to be shown how sorry he was. He would have to earn my trust back. He would have to work hard to prove the sorry. Sorry just doesn't cut it in that situation.
