    Peace and Blessings Family,

    It seems like women are more likely to forgive cheating in a relationship than men are.

    I don't have any data to support this, but looking across the landscape, it seems women are more forgiving, willing to overlook the indiscretion to keep the relationship active while men will quit if the woman were to do the same thing to them.

    What's up with that?

    Why aren't men equally as forgiving as women in like situations?

    Or ... do you think men are equally as forgiving when it comes to their partner cheating?

    Thanks in advance.

    Loving Us!

    :heart:

    I'm of the opinion that women should be less forgiving of infidelity and more discerning of character when choosing the men they decide to lie down with.

    Because of paternal insecurity. Until recently, men could not be certain of the genetic paternity of children born into their families, yet they would risk providing resources, (financial, etc.) for said child(ren). The possibility of providing resources for another man's child(ren) is what makes infidelity more aversive to men than women, imho.

    Then, I also think that men tie their manhood into sexual infidelity. That is, they might feel emasculated that another man provided something to their woman that they could not provide... maybe physically or emotionally.

    But, many men do, in fact, forgive infidelity. But, unlike women, who complain to all their family and friends, men are more likely to keep it a secret, because they think it reflects badly on them, I think.

    But, we shouldn't ask that men forgive cheating partners. No. We should ask that women DON'T forgive cheating partners.
