Re: Do you regret cheating on your spouse for any reason?
Peace, I have a very similar thread in the Coping With Infidelity section, and a similar one in the Life After Divorce section, where I ask if anyone regrets their divorce.
None too surprisingly, almost all of the respondents regret their affairs in the CWI thread, but there are no regrets in the LAD section.
But I have to stop and think: these are the people who either were caught having affairs or had a change of heart and confessed. These are the people who ADMIT their culpability. I'm sure there are many who are not remorseful, perhaps even a little proud of their infidelity, who simply will not answer, until someone else has the courage to do so.
Likewise, in the LAD section, these are respondents who either left abusive marriages or they simply grew apart-or, perhaps, they still harbor resentments toward the ex. Again, people who ADMIT their feelings. Of course, I geared the questions toward the ones who initiated the divorce, and I strongly suspect that there are quite a few who do indeed regret not giving the M another try, but it's too late, and some of them were probably warned against it by family and friends, perhaps even posters here, but they feel that they must prove to everyone that they made the "right" decision, which, incidentally, is why I think many people in abusive relationships/marriages refuse to leave the toxic situation.
