Rick and Lisa have been together for ten years. Rick feels the spark is gone, counselling hasn't worked and tells Lisa he is unhappy and wants to try being apart for a while. Lisa disagrees and says that since Rick cheated on her 3 years ago he has no right to end the relationship after Lisa forgave him and put work into rebuilding and gave it three more years. Rick feels guilty and takes it all back and Lisa is satisfied they can work it out.
Lisa is your friend, though you know Rick well. What do you do or say and to who? There is a second part to this but I'm just curious as apparently my opinion was "wrong".
Does a cheater really give up the option of ever ending the relationship once they cheat and repair the relationship?
