Re: Does cheating once make you "A cheater"?
OK, I'll play. I'm 53 years old. I cheated once, when I was 29, in a marriage that was dying before my eyes. I've never done it again, nor would I. And I greatly resent the analogy to some kind of addiction (once an addict, always an addict) -- I made a decision in a certain set of circumstances, and I learned that it was a poor decision.
So, no, I rather hate the simplistic nature of "once a cheater, always a cheater", although I realize many of you find comfort in that.
