8 Situations in Which People Forgive Cheating ...


There are many bad situations that could put our marriages or relationships at risk. Cheating is, of course, one of them and, although some people forgive cheating and choose to try hard for their chance to have a “happily ever after” for all the right reasons, others do it for all the wrong ones. Now, I’m not here to judge which ones are wrong and which ones are right, so I’m going to give you a list of 8 situations in which people forgive cheating and you know you can always correct me and add some of your own experiences and opinions.

1. Fear of the Unknown

For some, the fear of facing the world outside the comfy relationship is much greater than the pain caused by cheating. They have been with their partner for years and stepping out on the dating market again feels like the most difficult thing in the world. I know exactly how this works and, believe me, it can happen to everyone of us. Knowing that you won’t see the familiar face and/or hear the familiar voice when you wake up the next morning is kind of scary. Especially if you’ve been with that person for so long that you don’t even remember what your life used to be like before you met him/her.
