One of the rare creatures that can discern right from wrong without having to go through something themselves is the human race.

However, some people are illiterate. To grasp the value and significance of a love relationship or marriage, they require more than just morality lessons and lessons from life.

They are aware that cheating is wrong and that it has negative effects, but they nevertheless wonder what it would be like to cheat on a partner. They continuously fantasize about other people, ogle them, and ponder what it might be like to date or have sex with someone else.

You may wonder why someone would enter a relationship in the first place if they intended to cheat on their boyfriend, girlfriend, or spouse. However, there is the issue with being human. Even after making a decision, we constantly second-guess ourselves. Humans also have the annoying addiction of perpetually wondering if there is something better out there, which only serves to make matters worse.

Some of us simply have to taste the grass on the other side of the fence, test the water, or at the very least sneak a glance to see what it’s all about.

Curiosity isn’t always a bad thing. But what can I say if you are aware of the repercussions and yet decide to cheat on a partner who cares about you?

The two categories of cheats are:

There are two types of cheaters when it comes to adultery with a spouse.

1. The unintentional fraudster. 

This is the type of partner who, when under pressure, *accidentally* cheats on a partner. Maybe it was a snuck kiss with a crush or ex, a drunken antics gone wrong, or a casual date that just got out of hand. Although it’s not really excused, we must remember that the behavior wasn’t planned out in advance.

2. The one who lies knowingly. 

The worst type of cheater is the second one; they are the ones that are well aware of what they are doing. They are aware that cheating on a relationship is wrong, but they nevertheless decide to do it. Even worse, they go to great measures to hide their tracks so they may keep acting as though they aren’t doing anything suspicious behind their lover’s back.

Will you pardon a sweetheart who betrays you?

We encounter people we like or find attractive on a daily basis. And occasionally, a coworker who finds us attractive will come to feel the same way about us. Wouldn’t you ever think “what if?” Wouldn’t it make you feel good to know that someone finds you beautiful and wants to spend time with you?

Everything in life revolves around morals, conscience, and fine lines. Additionally, it can be simple to become lost at times. What would you want to do, then, if you learned that your lover had cheated on you? Would you pardon them if the fling had been a brief error in judgment? Would you leave if your partner had planned the scheme and gone to great measures to keep it a secret for years?

We are all unique individuals who experience various conditions. Therefore, you are the only one who can decide whether or not to forgive a dishonest partner.

Should you begrudge your partner who cheats?

Depending on how you view it, perhaps. Would you choose to directly blame your partner for it by pointing all fingers in their direction?

Instead of blaming them, would you want to examine your own motivations for your partner’s wandering instead? Was there something missing from the connection? Were you two growing apart? The most crucial factor is if the connection is worth clinging to and fighting for.

Most of the time, your partner may have wandered off for absolutely no reason or fault of yours. Maybe they simply saw a chance and seized it without considering the repercussions. What then are your plans to do about it?

Trusting someone who betrayed you and caused you heartbreak is never easy. Make sure it’s the final chance you’ll ever offer them in their lives if you decide to forgive a cheating partner and want to give them another chance.
