It's very hard to read. Very hard to accept. Very hard to try to understand.
I always thought it would be the ultimate deal breaker but when it actually happened, turns out it wasn't. And these kinds of statistics played a role in my decision to try to work things out.
I don't believe that I could stay knowing that he would continue to cheat - for a huge number or reasons but mostly for self-preservation.
Work it out because you want to, because you love him and because you want to fight for the relationship. Don't work on it out of fear or allow statistics to fuel your decision. Only you now how you feel what someone else would do is irrelevant.
Been with a cheater as a young woman and promised myself I would have the strength to never put it with it again.
Of course it's not an unrealistic expectation to expect your partner to be faithful if it's not an open relationship. I've been with my husband almost 20 years, he is the love of my life. If he cheated, I would boot him out, no ifs or buts. No way I would settle for a man that wasn't grown up enough to keep his willy in his pants.
Studies in this area have, IMO, lots of confounding factors. You have to rely on people to be 100% honest for a start
All I'm saying is don't put huge stock in studies like this- work things out based on your individual circumstances.
