Opinion: Is it really possible to love someone you cheat on?

Infidelity is always a topic that causes a big uproar, because it involves deceiving and betraying of someone who is supposedly the most important person in your life.

There are lot of reasons why people cheat, sometimes it can be selfishness, sometimes it can be insecurity, sometimes it could be other reasons.

According to Psychology Today, some people may cheat as a way to cope with childhood trauma or deal with attachment deficit disorders etc. but there are some people who just like to cheat, just to explore.

The big question is, can a person possibly love someone whom he/she cheats on?

Some people think it’s not possible for someone who cheats on you to love you, because he does not respect you. If he did love you, he would be able to control himself and talk to you about his urge and how often he would like to be with you.

Other people feel it is possible for a cheating partner to love the person he cheats on. According to most of them, the person cheating has no interest in their side chicks, they are just satisfying themselves with them.

Well, the bottom line is that love is not just a state of mind or a feeling, it’s a sacrifice. Relationships are built on love, trust, intimacy, and mutual respect.

When you truly love someone, it means you have an unwavering, unbreakable and unparalleled fondness and devotion for your them.

Admittedly, cheating can either be a mistake or a choice, but when that happens, your promises have become invalid and you can’t be trusted.

Cheating is the exact opposite of love. Love is about respect, discipline and commitment, when those things don’t match up, that’s not love.

Opinion: When someone uses the expression DEAR, what does it imply?

Granted, a cheating partner may genuinely care for his spouse, but sometimes caring is not just enough, if you really love that person, then chances are that you won’t cheat on them.

You can certainly care for someone you betrayed. But you likely don’t love them enough.
