Do you feel obligated to "forgive and forget" when someone apologizes?
We discovered that a family member was trash talking my spouse. I confronted her and she sent a letter of apology to him. She apologized in a manner that lets us know she's more sorry she got caught than remorseful for her actions and will probably keep doing it. Now, this person expects us to forgive her and go on like nothing happened. In fact, two days later, I got an email saying she's "deeply hurt" that my spouse hasn't written back and called him childish ... How would you respond in a similar situation? Would you feel obligated to forgive and forget?
Nope. I wouldn't. And your experience shows my reasons why. I've written a hub about forgiveness that talks about stuff like that at http://jellygator.hubpages.com/hub/Forg … eek-Change

People often say forgive and forget, but is it true? Can you forgive someone despite not forgetting? Or does true forgiveness only come when it is forgotten?

Do you think revenge is bliss or is it better to forgive and forget if the situation is bad enough?
