Infidelity hurts; it doesn't matter who the person is, it hurts. But life goes on after acts of betrayal, and we asked several women if they would still give their full commitment to their men after learning about their infidelity.


Absolutely not! Even if I do decide to stay, he would have to earn back my trust. I am not committing to any cheater no way, no how.


It all depends because if it is within a marriage, you still have to perform your wifely duties unless you choose not to forgive and call a spade a spade. My husband actually cheated on me several years ago and after a few counseling sessions, we both decided to work it out and believe me, it wasn't easy. Many times I wanted to spite him and not cook or clean, many times I wanted to deny him sex, but I didn't. if you choose to forgive, you have to choose to forget as well.


No she shouldn't. When my ex-husband cheated on me, before our divorce, I didn't cook for him, he couldn't speak to or touch me, and I never washed his clothes or anything. He cheated so I told him to give those duties to his lover.


It all depends on the extent of the cheating. If it was a one-off thing I might still give him full commitment but if it is was serious affair, no.


I am not about being half committed so if my man cheats, it is best we call it quits and move on. If I am married, I am not sure what I would do because marriage is different but for me, if the trust is broken we have nothing to hold on to.
