MYTH OR FACT: Once a Cheater, Always a Cheater?

Oof this is a tricky one...⁠

It truly depends on a couple of things:⁠

❓ Were there consequences to their cheating? If not, they may feel like they can continue to have their cake and eat it too. ⁠

❓ Were they in a vastly different phase of life when they cheated? Cheating in high school is different from cheating in your 30s!⁠

❓ Have they done a lot of self work since then? Is so, maybe not! ⁠

In general though, anecdotally, I do see a lot of repeat offenders. ⁠

Especially if your relationship starts as an affair. I tend to subscribe to "if they'll do it with you, they'll do it to you"⁠
