Normally I just expect the cheater to be making excuses for why he/she did it, but now I see other people making excuses for them. All I can think is why? I've heard things like they weren't in control of their actions and you know they wouldn't have done it if they were sober. BULLSHIT! To me if doesn't matter if you're sober or drunk, if you are in a relationship and make-out or have sex with someone other that who you are with then you are a cheater and I have no problem kicking you to the curb. I wouldn't even have to think about it, the relationship would be over the moment I find out you cheated. No talking it over, no second chances, and no forgiveness.
Why do some people always try and make excuses for girlfriends and boyfriends who get drunk and cheat?

I agree with you 100%
No second chances, no excuses, you cheated, its over.1
It's easier for people to blame problems on alcohol rather than themselves. While alcohol does actually really lower your judgment and you can end up doing things you will regret later it may be an exit strategy because you wanted to do it anyway but you weren't brave enough without liquid courage.0
I think those who do make excuses have an insecurity and fear of losing their partner. These people usually have no awareness that they are being disrespectfully treated because they are in denial or feel like they will not be the same individual, say they kick their partner out of their life.0

Because people make excuses and don't want to take accountability for their actions. That's why I stay away from relationships.1
Four letters, love.0
I'm an example of that situation where everyone claims alcohol isn't to blame and it's just her sober thoughts being unleashed but i'm trying to give her the benefit of doubt out of love and appreciation for what we have. Something tells me she won't do it again. What makes a diamond precious is the years of enduring harsh pressure to transcend into something beautiful.0
