    Pretty sure that would be a no. Not that I blame him; I wouldn’t forgive him either.

    I voted IDK, but I think it would be a hell no. His ex cheated on him with one of his friends, they worked it out, and then after 8 years, broke up with him for another guy. I just don’t think he could go through that twice. But it’s complicated when you love someone. So I think no, but am not positive. We both have said that that would be dealbreakers for us, but we have lived together for a year and a half and are getting married next year…I think it’s a lot easier to just leave when you are just dating and living seperately.

    He would forgive but no longer be with ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Before getting married, the answer would be no.  Now that we are married, I don’t know.  I think being married means we try to work through the good and the bad. Ugh, even if it includes cheating.   I personally wouldn’t be able to forgive myself if I did cheat. And I wouldn’t expect my husband to forgive me. He and I both know how we feel about cheating.

    like yrret– before marriage, no. but after marriage…well, we’re in it for the long haul, and he knows it, so he’d have to forgive me! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 
    and I guess I would him.

    (but of course this situation would NEVER happen!)

    (also, I saw the title of this and was like, “good freakin grief, ANOTHER post about cheating?!” but it’s a good one!)

    I think he might forgive me, because he is an amazing person with a good heart, but that doesn’t mean he’d stay with me. I think that would be hurting him too deeply. 

    Thank God, I don’t expect his to ever be more than a hypothetical.

    Yes, probably.

    no i don’t think he would. one of his best friends broke up with his fiancee after she cheated last winter, so we had a lot of conversations about it/them then, and he was pretty clear that it would be a total dealbreaker for him. i think i’m more willing to see the gray areas, but he was pretty black and white about it

    Darling Husband has repeatedly told me, “No matter what, divorce is not an option.”  So, I’d definitely say yes, he would forgive me.

    I think it would be really hard and it would take a very long time for him to get over it but I do think he would forgive me. Now, could I forgive myself? Not likely.

    Fiance says it just depends on the situation… there are different scales. To him, a drunken one-night stand is different than what he called “a secret life,” in which I would build this elaborate web of lies in order to cheat on him… I think this is too complicated for a yes or no poll, so I chose “I just don’t know.”

    I don’t know.  We both have no idea and we would have to be in that situation to know.  However, I’m not certain how a person can rebuild trust after that.
