—his best friend's wife in flagrante delicto with another man, then uploaded the video to You Tube.
In the past I've continued to date someone who had cheated **on me**; we continued to date for two years after that, and it was wonderful.

I don't care if people “make mistakes.” I don't care if we're “all human.”Cheating is not a mistake you make when you truly love someone.
