  • I wouldn't call it strength, I call it fear.

    Strength is leaving the cheater and knowing you deserve better the someone who hurt you so much. Cheating is a choice and they made that decision without considering your feelings.

    Fear is staying with the cheater because they are scared of the alternative of being alone and having to start over with someone else and being alone.

  • its like those who get mentally, emotionally, and physically abused. my whatever you call it relationship, she is still hooked on her ex, her mother and 2 other people control her. So its a rough thing. Cheaters need empowerment to move on and move forward.

  • I would argue that it has little or nothing to do with strength. It's likely more so due to willful ignorance, denial, or lying to themselves about how they truly feel about things.

  • That's all they know.

    They're mind is clouded that he/she is the only person they could ever and possibly love.

    And some may think that marrying the person and/or having kids with them, that the cheater could change their ways.
