This is one of those interesting questions in life. I know that if asked most of us would say that we would never take back our significant other if they cheated on us. We would be adamant about it until it actually happened. Then what do you do? I think it depends on a lot of factors, but my theory has always been that if someone cheats once they will cheat again. They can change their behavior but it won't change with you. Why? Because if you give them a second chance they will assume they can do it repeatedly without any consequences and then you feel miserable and their is a power imbalance and the whole relationship is a mess.
Again, that is my theory and I am sure there are lots of conflicting stories and probably some success stories where the significant other never strayed again. My guess is though they just got better at not being caught. Anyway, I bring this up because Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush were spotted together down in New Orleans. To me that means they are back together. This is a guy who cheated on her for sure with one woman for almost a year. Kim and Reggie have only been together two years so for half the time they were dating he was screwing someone on the side. At least one. There have been many, many more others that have not gone reported.
But, there have also been some rumors floating around that suggest Kim might have not been completely innocent either. So, what do you do if both parties are cheating? You break up. It isn't going to work. Oh sure you could start getting into swapping but for that to work you need to have trust and if both people have been cheating then where is the trust? There is none. What really freaks me out about all this is that despite the cheating, Kim's entire family wants the couple to get back together. Why? Why would you want your child to keep getting hurt? Ratings?
I think that Kim has this fairy tale dream and she isn't going to let some cheating get in the way of that fairy tale. Well, maybe after the fourth or fifth time she catches him she will figure it out. So, what do you do? Do you take your partner back or send them to the curb?
