Where do I begin? My husband and I have been together for 7 years. We've been married 4 of those and we have a 6 year old son. Shortly after our son was born my husband, then fiancé, started talking to a girl (she was 18, literally a girl) he worked with. Then he started leaving me (a first time mom) at home with our very young son to go hang out with this girl and her newborn. When I found out he said I had "changed" and I wasn't fulfilling his needs. Of course I changed! I grew up and became a mom and being a mom to a breast feeding newborn is exhausting! Long story short I forgave him and we got back together. Since then we got married and I found out he's had five others that I know of. He swears he hasn't had any physical relationships with anyone but me. I love him but I hate everything he's done. It's so hard to get past the anger. He swears he's never doing it again because he wants to be a good husband and good father. Is it possible for someone to change in this way? I believe people can change I just don't know if cheaters can change. Is it possible to forgive a perpetual emotional cheater?
