Should a man or woman be forgiven if they have an affair


I often wondered if forgiveness was an option to men and women who cheat. Should they be forgiven if they are doing everything possible to try to correct the situation and are truly sorry for what they did. Or is that just their cover up being sorry so that their wife or husband will forgive them.

    Well what if the person who was betrayed never did anything different in the marriage. Gave it their all, was always the same, never stopped having sex, never stopped giving attention to the betrayer but they did it because they were away from home.

    Your point is valid about the sincerity of the apology. Some people try to "forgive" because they can't handle both the betrayal and divorce/breakup (all at once). It's important to take some time to decide if you can (really) forgive before saying.
