Healthy Relationships


Wow.  I just heard that the divorce rate is 50%!

Scary facts.

    If someone cheated on me I could not forgive them because I would feel so hurt and angry.

    I would be very upset and cut them off from my life.

    If someone cheated on me I would instantly stop talking to them. I would confront them in a day or two to ask what happened then tell them to never talk to me again. I know I would be better off without them and would be forced to just move onand find someone better.

    If someone cheated on me, I would probably break up with them because it shows that they do not care about me or respect me, which are major keys in a healthy relationship in my mind.

    I would be very angry because that someone betrayed my trust and clearly does not have the same feelings towards me and me only.

    I would be very heart broken if someone cheated on me because I had trusted them and they went onto break that trust willingly. Also an abusive relationship is the opposite of what you want out of a healthy relationship.

    Before you go all out and dump them, find out why they did what they did and seek out a solution. Some relationships recover from an affair and blossom for decades.

    I would be very upset and disappointed if someone cheated on me because I trusted them and they purposely hurt me

  13. wlkhs0214 November 28, 2016 at 3:18 pm

    Dump them.

  14. WLKHS0211 November 28, 2016 at 3:03 pm

    I’d be angry, but I’d try to find a way to work it out.
