Yes,respect should always be there.He/she may cheat but it doesn't mean that respect will no longer be there.There are so many circumstances wherein respect must come first. Since it is cheating then it is about loyalty and honesty .

Nope not really. Unless I respected their actions in other circumstances if you wanna put it that way, but either way the person who cheated would be thrown out on their behind.

I think a person should at the very least text or call the person they are about to cheat on and break off the relationship.

Well, it's a subject I have a hard time gauging. I was with someone for 3 and a half years who was a little bi-polar & for the last two years of our relationship they stopped being affectionate towards me & eventually ignored me a large portion of the time. It's easy to ask why I stayed with him, but sometimes in relationships you can't get yourself to see a healthy perspective, so you let it slowly eat at you. But when someone I admired for years told me they had a crush on me, I ended my relationship, with hopes for the warm fuzzies again, something simple & sweet. But the sad fact is that the other person was in another relationship. I ended up becoming the cheatee-on-with, not through sex, but I still know it's the worst way I've betrayed someone.

A few years later, I found out my previous partner had cheated on me multiple times. Which is why they pulled away from me, because their conscience was heavy when near me & they felt disgusted with themselves. Thus resulting in my diminished self-esteem, ending in my own betrayal of someone.

A lot of the time getting affection or attention is merely because we have a low self-esteem. It's a gamble whether you want to have faith in someone knowing it's a weakness not easily gotten over. As for me, whenever someone tries to get close to me now, I can't stomach it. I can't even trust myself.

I have a hard time respecting the action. But I still love people I know have lied to me or have beliefs and attitudes I don't entirely agree with. Often relationship issues are complicated. Still the honourable path is to leave the first relationship cleanly before getting involved with another. I have trouble respecting a person who cannot manage that.

someone who is the third party in a cheat? it depends on how well informed they are of the relations involved. If you don't know you're helping someone cheat I can't see how that's your fault. On the other hand. If you knowingly participate in someone cheating on a third party you're just as guilty as the cheater IMO.

If they have the will to change after what they did then yes. But if all they want to do is play mind games and cheat on every girl they're with just for fun. Then no, the human emotion isn't fun to toy with.

I have some very hard and fast rules for people who cheat.

If you cheat, you have given up on your right to a happy relationship by destroying one.

If your significant other is willing to forgive you, you need to devote yourself to their happiness and be glad you aren't married to me

If you cheat, but where in such a state of mind that you were incapable of rational thought (sloshed out of your mind), you are not ENTIRELY responsible (you still put yourself into that situation).

I see cheating as a much more heinous crime than most people, but I'm just wired that way.

NO!!!!!! That doesn't mean I don't understand.

Hmm my silence and my eyes pretty much gave it away. Something dies in you and tbh what's the point of seeing them let alone respecting them?

Once you cheat, all respect is lost for me.

Well, I find there are always exceptions to the rule. Claiming any absolutes show how close minded and arrogant you are. Each case should be judged seperately.

yes, I would still respect someone, I wouldn't look at them the same way but I would still respect them.

Without respect you are basically treating someone like dirt and you would not be any different from the person who cheated.

I would have to say I do lose respect for them. I suppose it depends on the situation as well. I just feel as though there is no real reason to cheat, if you have feelings of intimacy towards another person, do the right thing and break up with the person you're with before doing it. It's simply not right to do that while your with someone else.
