People cheat because they have opportunities to do so, need to experience different things, need their desires met, or are looking for a reason to end a relationship. But while the reasons why men and women cheat are different, they are often selfish, narcissistic, and often regrettable.

Throughout pregnancy, he doted her with gifts and even moved with her into her mom’s house. After a rushed C-section, the couple welcomed their first child, George. Unknowingly, this was the moment their relationship boat started sinking.

A few days after giving birth, Chloe received a shocking text from their mutual friend Emma*.

I’ve slept with your boyfriend. It happened that night he (Jack) went to stay at his mum's house. I thought you should know.

After confronting her boyfriend, the two ended up separating since trust had been shuttered.

I was trying to get away from her for a long time, but couldn’t due to her falling pregnant.

The Dos and Donts when you find out a partner has cheated

After receiving such news, what you need to do is realize that you are not an exception since people cheat. Second, know that you are not the reason they cheated on you and don’t take the blame for their actions. Finally, accept what happened, know that you deserve better, and most importantly, forgive but don’t forget.

What you don’t need to do after being cheated on is trying to get even or revenge since you are bigger than that. Second, don’t jump into another relationship but instead give yourself time to heal and learn from the situation.
