I just finished watching a movie where the female in a marriage remained loyal to her husband but all throughout their marriage the husband cheated on his wife by having numerous affairs. Every time I watch or hear of someone cheating on their spouse or partner it saddens me. Why does it sadden me?
It saddens me because a person involved in a relationship who is committed and giving their love has been betrayed by the one they love. This saddens me.
The lies. The deceit. The betrayal. The hurt. The confusion. Why does a person cheat going through all the hoops of infidelity only to not escape discovery. Then they decide to tell their spouse or partner out of guilt and shame to further put salt on the wound of the person they said they cared for and loved.
Why not just be an adult and leave the marriage or relationship before cheating. Even better, why not have a conversation before the cheating with your spouse or partner to work through issues or to part ways.
I’m not saying the person who cheats is a bad person. I’m not saying that they should be judged by me. What I am judging is the behavior that is so hurtful toward someone that has been told that they love them and the person who does not see marriage as a sacred union.
If you have any thoughts, don’t hold back share them. Oh and no I have not been cheated on in many years but I do know what that feels like.
