I’ll admit, I used to believe that old adage of once a cheater, always a cheater. I’ve changed my way of thinking.
But I agree with you, each situation is different and it’s unfair to apply a blanket statement to every one, not knowing the circumstances.
I believe there are some people who are just not cut out for monogamy, but feel compelled to try to live the status quo. Often, they fail, so they end up cheating.
Then there are those who just want to do whatever they want, while maintaining a ‘happy relationship’ on the surface for the world to see. I believe most of those people are probably narcissists.
Then there are situations similar to yours.
