i mean I know its just a movie, but like...how can this be? is this what is expected of people ideally? to live love and forget? call me vengeful but...i couldn't forgive my partner for cheating on me. I mean, maybe if it was just a kiss, but even then id have to dissect it and know ALL the details...but I could definitely not forgive a girl if it were more than that. sure people can ask...well I guess you didn't really love her. why do people turn it around? like...im not the cheater here...
anyway...my question is...has anybody been cheated on and forgiven their partner completely 100%? and lived happily ever after? I don't believe its possible...but perhaps it is?

Not a direct answer to your question, but when it comes to movies, forgiving infidelity can represent a desire to be forgiven, not a desire to forgive. It's a variation of the Mary Sue complex, the creator paints his own ideals into the plot and morals of the movie.
Another example is how the bad guys never survive a movie, but at the end they do something that justifies the hero killing them, like drawing a gun or taking a hostage. In this case, though, it probably represents the appeal of justifiably killing your enemies, and not the desire to take a hostage if you're threatened with prison :P
To answer your question, though, I haven't been cheated on that I know of, but I tolerate no betrayal on my own part, and in return I have a zero toleration policy on being betrayed as well. Infidelity is unforgivable to me.0
