Don’t Commit to a Cheater
We thank you for listening to our podcast. You have helped us rank in the top 50% of podcasts about relationships. We have big goals, however, and our next goal is to make it into the top 20%. Please help us by telling those you know who like podcasts.
In this week’s episode, we discussed many reasons why some people cheat, and their partners stay with them.
We both urged listeners to be honest with themselves and their partners about the situation.
Tony also has some other tips to offer:
- If you are a person that cheats on your partner. Take a moment to try to figure out why.
- Also think about the person you’re cheating on. How would you feel if they cheated on you? If you don’t care how it affects your partner emotionally, please try to be nice enough to let them go, if they don’t have the strength to leave you.
- Please, please, please, if you are the person that’s being cheated on, find the strength to leave them. You are worth more than that, you deserve better than that. Love yourself.
Jill also has some advice for listeners:
- If you find that partner after partner cheats on you, try to determine why.
- If you end a relationship because your partner cheats on you, don’t feel like you have to tell everyone or anyone. Some so-called friends have a tendency to make you feel worse about it. So, only tell others if it makes you feel better to release the truth.
- Don’t try to change a cheater. You only have control of yourself.

Hi Jill–I can’t sign into World Press. I don’t know what the problem is, so until I or they figure it out, I’m sending my comments this way. Lol, Mary
*If I’ve ever been in a cheating relationship, I haven’t known, so I guess it’s safe to say I have not. Denis knew a man (whom I later met when Denis and I started going out) that he found out was a chronic cheater and liar. This guy’s life would have made a great nonfiction book. The yarns that man spun! He had a wife at home with five kids and many girlfriends on the side. When he finally introduced his wife to friends, he said she was a former nun with five adopted kids! I don’t think we ever figured out why he made his life so complicated. He was a smart, clever man–maybe it resulted from boredom. I think some do it because they’re not getting what they need from their partner and some just for the adrenaline rush. We just saw a fascinating movie on the subject–“Mrs. Wilson,” which is based on true events. We highly recommend it for the entertainment value and insight into a first class cheater.*

Mary, your comment came via WordPress just fine, so I approved it. Thanks, as always, for your thoughts and observations. What an interesting story you shared about the man who definitely made his life complicated. It would make a great script or book! Tony and I will have to check out the movie you mentioned. We’ll let you know our thoughts once we get a chance to do that.
