like when he was a whole lot younger, would you leave him/her?
Somehow you learn he/she cheated on a gf/bfhe had say 8-10 years ago, would that make you want to leave him/her? What if h/she expressed regret or was sincerely apologetic about it?
How would you react?

Eight - ten years is a long time, and people can change. Especially when that long ago, we were still relatively young and finding out what it was even like to be dating.
I don't approve of cheating but the fact is that it does happen.
What's more important is how the person changes (or doesn't) after the fact. Have they realized their mistakes, and try to be a better person? Or do they not care so much, and continue to act freely when they're supposed to be committed?
I might be a little cautious if I knew the guy I was dating had cheated, but I wouldn't leave him right away if he seemed to regret doing it or could acknowledge that he should not have. I'd like to think that people can change and mature and be better than that, but who knows I guess. Relationships are largely about trust and knowing that might shake my trust a little bit at first. Only a little bit though, like I said... we're all young once and we all do stupid shlt. It's how we learn and figure stuff out.1
