Could you forgive infidelity? Should you forgive a cheater? If you are asking yourself this question, it means that a part of you is willing to forgive your partner’s infidelity. But, there is not a universal or simple answer as to whether cheating is forgivable or not. Each woman’s ability to forgive depends on the unique circumstances of her relationship, the circumstances of the affair itself, and the degree of commitment you and your partner have built together.
