    Re: Would you forgive your significant other if he/she cheated on you?

    My gf could forgive me.

    But I could never forgive her, and would terminate the relationship immediately.

    ie: her out on her ass immediately.

    Just out of curiosity, why the double standard? If she could forgive you why couldn't you forgive her?

    No forgiving possible. If she cheats then it is obvious that I just think she is my significant other. I have a tendency to brake relationships off very abruptly as soon as it goes sour anyways.

    And i have no need to keep him with me using violence, there are 6 billion people in this world. I'm pretty sure that there are other Men in this world.

    I don't know about you but my partner is not a coward, he knows i would never hurt him .... unless he thoroughly deserved it and i also know he would never cheat on me and vice versa.
    If he did ever cheat on me, i sure as heck hope she was good in bed because he won't be getting any from me ever again. I'm not the forgiving type and he has been well aware of that for years.

    Oh and i'm not a 'wife'

    No, I couldn't and wouldn't. It's a whopper of a lie, a deceipt. THAT's what I couldn't forgive, not the actual deed. Especially when there's no need to sneak around or lie to himself, to the other woman/man or to me.

    I'm pretty open, talk to me, tell me..... negotiate. If you tell me that you want no one else then me. I'm going to believe you and hold you to that standard. If you tell me you want me only for you, then that's how it is. Period.

    If you come to me and tell me there's a woman you want and must have, go for it. Don't do the deed and then come to me all hang dog pitiful, asking permission after the fact..... it's disprespectful to yourself, the other woman and me.

    I have very few hard boundaries, this is one of them. Honesty. From honesty comes trust, and trust is the biggy that any relationship with me is built on.

    The "cheat" is the lie, not the sex.

    Re: Would you forgive your significant other if he/she cheated on you?

    I took "forgive" to mean "remain with them" not literal forgiveness.

    Literally forgive, I would do that regardless of the circumstances. No matter how I've been wronged, I have never been one to not forgive. It's just my nature.


    As far as remain with my wife, it would depend on a few things.

    If it was purely physical and there was no emotional involvement, it would be a lot easier to remain with her after infidelity, but if it was an actual prolonged relationship with emotional investment, I don't think I could.

    Did it happen and then she told me about it right away, or did she hide it and I discovered it? If she fessed up to a purely physical encounter right away, again, it would be easier to remain with her. If she hid it from me and I discovered it by chance, it would be more difficult.

    All of the above means nothing if she cheated on me with another woman. I'd definitely stay with her in that case.



    But I'd definitely "forgive" her in any scenario. I would still love her regardless. I wouldn't hold a grudge over it.

    I am pretty sure if you where ever available, men would be lining up around the block for you.

    Re: Would you forgive your significant other if he/she cheated on you?

    I'd like to add that I would not get angry over it, regardless of the scenario.

    I do have a very bad temper, but it really doesn't come out when people do things to me such as this. If I were physically hit, my temper would rise, but emotional hits don't get me angry.

    I've got a weird temper though. I've got a long fuse in many ways, and a nearly invisible fuse in others.
