Cheating in a Relationship: Deal Breaker?
If cheating occurs in a relationship, are you willing to work through it?

When it comes down to it, most of us out there have either been cheated on or have been the cheater. As much as we want to believe that the person who lies next to us at night would never do anything like cheat on us, but it does happen.

Why The Cheating?

There are actually many reasons why people cheat. As much as I hate to do this, I am going to come clean. I cheated on my ex husband and really it was not my proudest moment of my life, but it did happen. I don’t want to give excuses why it happened or say that it was okay that it happened. What I will say though is that I do not regret that it happened. It was an eye opener for me, I was very unhappy in my marriage and it got to the point that I did not even know who I was any more. I cheated with an old friend that brought happiness back into my life. He brought back beautiful memories just being around him, memories that I had forgotten. Being with him is what pushed me into therapy, which then made me realise how unhealthy my relationship with my ex husband was. I realized that I did not love him any more, that I needed to be happy again and not just for myself, but also for my little men. I wanted to show them happiness and not how to fake happiness. I know cheating on my ex was not the right thing to do, but it happened, I do not regret it because of it I am a happier person.
