I would agree with the notion that it is forgivable in some situations, but there is definatly a piece of the relationship that is tough to restore,
if even possible. We are, afterall, human. We are conditioned from birth to strive for the best, or at least something better. Even love has a
tough time overcomming these urges.
My example...my girlfriend after highschool cheated on me on spring break after nearly 2 years of a very serious relationship. It was the drunken
romp so many young hearts fall victim to. After lots of yelling, and holes in walls, massive alcohol consumption, and lots and lots of tears, I took
her back a few months later. I truely could not imagine life without her.
Here I am 5 years later and I haven't once regretted my decision to take her back. However, there is definately trust issues, even after all this
time, and honestly there probably always will be. She knows I will forever have a difficult time trusting her because I understand this temptation
will always exist, just as it always will for me. IMO, its when we let this guard down and start neglecting our lovers that these temptations form to
infidelity. I will never make this mistake again because I cannot imagine life without her. This single situation all these years ago makes our
relationship stronger because I realized the things we do subconsciously that push our significant other away from us.
