Is it Ever OK to Get Back Together With a Cheater?

The short answer is no. But the real answer is actually a question. Why would you want to get back together with a man who cheated on you?

For arguments sake, let’s rule out that he was drugged, beaten or held at gunpoint to have sexual intercourse with another woman. If your guy partook in good old-fashioned hanky-panky on his own accord, then ditch that loser.

I understand that, even though he cheated, you’re probably still in love him. But think long and hard about it.

  • Will you ever be able to forgive him?
  • Will you be able to forget?
  • Will you be able to think about anything else?

It’s not just about the physical cheating. He also cheated on you emotionally and broke the trust of your relationship. And if you look at it in a completely realistic way, he’s also exposed you to the possibility of a sexually transmitted disease.

What else is there to think about?
