    What is your opinion on cheating? Is it right or wrong to tell someone you've cheated on them?

    I'm watching Dr.Drew's Life Changers and it is a very interesting question.

    Cheating is wrong. Once a cheater always a cheater. My husband cheated on me for months when I asked him about it he lied to my face. He didn't even have the balls to tell me to my face when he did finally come clean. He had to do it from another County and through a text message.

    Cheating is an unfortunate and regrettable thing that should not happen. You could tell your partner if he or she suspects or if you cannot bear the guilt. Otherwise, avoid telling them if they do not know as it will heart them so much.

    Trust is the #1 ingredient in any relationship. Without trust the relationship will never be healthy. IF you cheat on your significant other, the only way to attempt to reestablish trust would be to tell them.

    Or better yet, just don't cheat in the first place. Because I've always said that I'd rather a woman leave me and spit in my face than cheat on me. I think it's the cruelest thing you can do to someone you allegedly love.

    No way.......!
    cheating is totally wrong thing.
    if you cheat someone for good intance,than it is good.but cheating someone for your own purpose is not good.
    Specially today,teens are used to cheat a girl or a boy in love.
    That's totally wrong thing.....

    Cheating is wrong. But, if it was just a heat of the moment thing, and the cheater has the guts to tell their partner, I believe it can be talked over and sorted out. I believe in second chances, everyone does things they regret.
    However, if it was an ongoing thing, with the same person, more than once, totally wrong! There is no way that can be forgiven, it is such a thoughtless, selfish thing to do.

    It's a little bit of a tricky question. If a woman cheats on her violent abusive husband while on vacation with her girlfriends, it probably would not be healthy for her to admit she did so. There are other instances when a cheater tells her or his mate soley for the purpose of taking a load of guilt off of their shoulders. In effect they are suddenly being honest so THEY will feel better. Having said that we do live in the age of AIDS, Herpes, and Genital Warts. (diseases with no cures) It's wrong to put someone else's health at risk. Everyone knows the right thing to do is NOT to cheat/betray their mate in the first place. If you're unhappy leave.
    Some people treat relationships like jobs. They won't leave one until they have another one lined up. Those who find themselves in "sexless marriages" aren't likely to tell their spouse if there are other benefits to remaining in the marriage.

    the truth is the most important aspect of a relationship ... if you cannot tell the truth then the relationship is flawed and will not carry on for long.

    I think cheating is wrong, I think it is for people who think they can have whatever they want in life, for people who are afraid of commitment, for people who are just plain stupid. I have never cheated and I never will. If for some reason I ever did, I would be honest and tell my bf I wouldnt hide it, I think he you want to be with someone else you need to leave the one your with first.
    @dashingscorpio If the person is in an abusive relationship then they need to leave anyway, I dont support abuse, but I do think that the women who dont leave have no one to blame but themselves.(no I am not tryign to sound like a bitch, I want to be a social worker, I have helped many women get out of abusive relationships and I've even had women tell me they didnt wanna leave because they were in love, I'm sorry but even if I loved my abuser I would cherish my life more and if we cant get these women to see that then unfortnatly there is really nothing else we can do for them.)

    A woman point of view:

    Cheating is the most intimate connection between a husband and wife. When a cheater gives that away, he can never take it back. It does something to a woman that kills something inside of her and leaves her feeling the rot. It is so painful, so unbearable, yet she is forced to swallow it. It is worse than death. It is taking the tier off the wedding cake and feeding it to a dog. Even though the cake is mostly there, and it is still sweet, she can never get that top tier back again. It is like being proud and feeling good that you are esteemed and respected high above the other layers, on cloud 9, only to learn that you are not and never will be again. A cheater puts aside his wife and helps a homewrecker to disrespect her by connecting with the evil woman giving her the power to join forces with him to destroy his wife in the most intimate way. She may think that you never truly loved her.

    The wife may also lose her pledge of fidelity and feel prone to cheat without feeling guilty. Some women dare to do the unthinkable: let another man impregnate them in order to feel even and minimize the pain. In an effort to permanently protect herself against that kind of pain, she may not trust him again. These are not rational or sensible thoughts, but desperation brings about changes in people.

    If a mate decides to cheat, he should weigh his possible losses, and be prepared to lose them. Many spouses walk away and never look back. Cheaters should stay single and not ruin another's life.
