Once a Cheater, Always a Cheater? Is this true or false? Let’s dig a little deeper and find out.
People who’ve never been on the receiving end of infidelity typically claim, “Once a Cheater, Always a Cheater!” and the person who cheated is morally corrupt with some sort of “character disorder”.
They are not tied into the emotional aspect of it and just lump all cheaters together in a negative light.
An affected spouse who falls victim to this however, may quietly ask… once a cheater always a cheater?
The question speaks of the pain of infidelity, of the broken promises and actions and words of betrayal.
The quiet question reserves hope that all is not lost: that at some point in some way or another there may be remorse, redemption, reconciliation and the saving of family, marriage and dreams for the future.
There is also a big factor at play here…
“Once a Cheater, Always a Cheater” also speaks for trust.
Can I actually trust that my cheating spouse CAN be faithful?
Can I trust the new words and new promises she makes?
Can I really trust that they will not cheat again? I don’t believe I can take any more of the deception and betrayal.
So, is it true or not… Once a Cheater, Always a Cheater!?
It depends… on two factors.
1. The type of affair. Particular types of affairs are prone to repeat experiences.
2. The learning and growth of the Cheating spouse (and wounded spouse as well.)
Once the marriage or relationship is altered, healed and reconstructed, the odds of cheating again are revised.
