Mhmm. Most of the time, speaking the truth relieves the heart of burdens. Mends and molds old/ new relationships.
Had I known this person was married prior to the act? If I didn’t know, I would speak truthfully because I was naive to the person’s status. Of course, I’d still feel guilty, but was it completely my fault for her not telling me?
If I knew that person was married then I don’t think I could live well. On the surface, I’d want to lie and say no. Deny it and become blind to the whole situation. But I think I’d still have to say the truth because guilt will overcome me. I’ve become a huge part of ruining her husband’s marriage. Though, it’s also her fault for cheating. Based on my personal morals, I blame 90% of the fault towards the cheater more than the “home-wrecker”.
You say “throughout the relationship”. So am I still with the girl or no? And I’ve come to terms that after every relationship, I don’t think I’m going to remain exactly the same. I’m going to change in some way; either in my actions, activities or mind-set. So even after constantly proving myself “good”, I’m fine with them seeing me in a different light.
It’s not about men or women.
