  • It does for some people. Through conseling and time, some can work it out. For me, no.
  • Not any relationship I will ever be in.
  • It's best you don't really plan out the best future. If it happened once, it will probably happen again. You forgive them, they think that it's gonna be easy to do it again since all you'll do is forgive and forget. I would not count on anything going on the right way. But it's just my opinion. You need to know what you will feel right with. Think about your future and if you plan on having kids or not. Affairs may come up and just cause emotional distress in the family.
  • Certainly not if it were my relationship. Some people can forgive and forget but I do not believe that once trust is broken it can ever be repaired.
  • it depends on situation and the partner...but maybe you can make mistake once and be extremely regretful and sorry and honestly wouldnot do it again and it made u realise how good u got it then maybe i could forgive just the once and their could be a future, but if it is happening more then no way kick thm to the curb!!
  • A relationship always has a future if both are prepared to work at it and forgive
  • Yes, if they forgive each other and decide to change and move on. It's the people's hearts that will make it work or not, how committed they are to change.
  • In some cases yes, if the one that was cheated on chooses to stay. I didn't,I forgave but I also divorced him :)
  • Possibly. There are a lot of factors but ultimately most people will have a hard time getting past it and moving on. By doing so you've broken the trust someone had in you. That's the hard part to get over.
  • I think that depends on why there was cheating in the first place. If both partners want to work it out, then it most certainly can work. It's a tough road, however.
  • It can... Since there's no indication of which member cheated, the cheater should read this: http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/3119941 Then, for the cheated, see http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/2691789 Actually, it MAY help if BOTH read both answers.
  • I would have to say NO way!! If they do it once they'll most likely do it again.
  • I would think no for most of the population. Some people have a lower forgiveness threshold.
  • Maybe in some cases it would, but for me no. This is only my opinion, but if you loose trust in your partner , what else is there? Do you second guess that person for everything they are going to do or say? Some people can forgive, I wish I was one, but I'd say there would be no future without 100% trust.
  • Depends on the circumstances and the people involved. For some people that is the end... For others, it can be worked through. It depends on your own personal opinion on what cheating means.
  • Yes, just refuse to play card games with her
  • Not with me. Been there, done that.
  • no .. not for me. Once a cheater. always a cheater. Once you lose that trust in a relationship, it's gone.
  • I don’t think so, in life you earn reputation and trust, this 2 core values are essential if you fail, you just show of what you are made of, there is no reason to trust again.

  • For me,,,YES for him,,,,,, "NO"
  • No. Cheating is the biggest battle a couple can face and has many consequences to the relationship. The relationship isn't a good one if one of the 2 cheat. You break trust, honesty, loyalty and it shows a lack of respect for your partner if you cheat.
  • No I don't believe there is a future, since the bond has already been broken, along with the trust. My ex never forgave me, and stopped talking to me, after I told him I had slept with a couple of guys at the clubs, and with my close friend.
  • Depends on the person, some people are more forgiving than others.
  • i'm sorry, but my motto is, "once a cheater, always a cheater". besides, I've have yet to meet ANYONE who only cheated once. (and if they claim that, they've most likely never gotten caught the rest of the time).
  • Gees, I wish people would grow up. "Cheating" is a baby term. Monogamy is unrealistic. Everyone has these Hollywood rules in their heads so deeply that they can't even think through their own lives. What do YOU want? If it is a Disney movie, fergit it. It ain't happenin'. What do YOU want? Do you really have to have Ann Launders and Julia Roberts movies tell you what you should do?
  • To me, not really. But at the same time, cheating has its purposes. You have to keep your options open, in my opinion.
  • It depends on the couple.
  • Possibly depending on the people involved and their relationship's overall health It also depends on personality issues as well as issues with the third party and how forgiving people are
  • Maybe, but not the same future it would have had before. It might always be in the back of your mind.
