This probably won’t help you, but ill share anyways.  I have never cheated on anyone, but have been cheated on. He was my first love and we had been living together for a couple years  when I found out. Looking back, it was not a healthy relationship anyways (i was totally blind to the whole situation)  he was manipulative and controlling. Him cheating pissed me off and gave me the courage I needed to leave. 


I do know one couple who was able to move past a cheating incident. It took a lot of counseling, but they seem to be doing ok. im glad that you were able to move past it. It takes alot to discuss it openly and be honest about your feelings. Maybe couples counseling would help resolve any lingering feelings?

I have never cheated or been cheated on, but I’ll give another perspective – my mom was a serial cheater, real soap opera type stuff where we found out my brother’s my half brother.  it was devastating for all of us and a real sense of betrayal.  When you cheat and have a family, you’re not just cheating on your spouse but your kids as well.  while I forgive her and love her, I will never be able to respect her for it.

@jbbs1222:  In my last relationship (obviously not with my DH) he cheated.  I didn’t find out about this until our relationship was over and the funny thing was he was ALWAYS accusing me of cheating – must have been the guilty conscience.

I have never cheated, but my ex cheated on me when we were 19, after being together since we were 14.  I had gone home for Christmas (we moved about 1.5 hours away from my family) and when I was gone, he cheated and then decided to tell me a week later.  We broke up, I moved home, he told me he missed me, I came back to him and found out he was still with the girl he cheated on me with…so I became the other girl.  I felt like a disgusting slut and haven’t spoken to him since.
