LAURA'S LOVE LIFE ADVICE: Should You Ever Stay With A Cheater, Like Demi Moore Is Sticking By The Allegedly Cheating Ashton Kutcher?

Although he’s a total cad, Ashton shouldn’t be served with divorce papers from Demi Moore quite yet; she should give their marriage another shot for the sake of their family!

If Demi Moore has never heard the expression, ‘fool me once, shame on you – fool me twice, shame on me’ – she better learn it, and fast. In the wake of Ashton Kutcher‘s cheating scandal, it seems like the gorgeous 47-year-old is magnanimously giving her hot hubby a second shot at love — but he doesn’t deserve this kind of gift more than once!

Don’t get me wrong — I don’t condone cheating in the slightest, and I think Ashton, 32, is a fool if he DID step out on his sexpot wife (who’s about 10,000x more beautiful than the 21-year-old piece he cheated with, Brittany Jones). But do we know all the particulars about their relationship, or what happens behind closed doors? No.

But are there reasons to stay with a cheater? Like I said before, everyone makes mistakes, but I’m not hopeful that men really CAN change. So do I think Ashton — though repentant now — will cheat again? YES. Just like the case of the golf pro himself, a Tiger (Woods) can’t change his stripes. But Demi owes it to herself to give it another go. She loves the man, as do her three daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, and she’s been married to him for five years. That’s nothing to sniff at.

But if she’s kind enough to take him back this once, he needs to work his ass off to deserve her faith. They need counseling, she deserves nothing less than flowers and chocolates and jewelry every day of the year and HE needs a leash. If she has to tug too hard on said leash, then it’s time to let him run free and pee on fire hydrants where he may.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do cheaters ever deserve another chance? Weigh in!

I think Ashton and Demi were never fit to be married in the first place. She is way too old for him and like I say playtime is over. She deserve someone her age who shares her life experiences. Ashton deserves someone his age who can share the experiences he has. I believe everyone def does have a soulmate. I also believe no one over 10yrs older than you could possibly be that soulmate! God made us all unique to love no matter what generation we are from. However, everyone deserve the chance to have compatibility with someone in their age range. She had her fun with her little boy toy time to let him go. He is ready to mature and perhaps meet the girl of his dreams. Not the mother of his past! Not to be rude Demi Morre is pretty yes but she couldn’t compare to any 21 yr old female! She had her younger years time to grow up and move on!

when he was younger he really didn’t realize how very old she was now that he is older he realizes how old she is. and all those young girls are probably throwing the choochie smell out left and right and he’s a sniffin. she staying with him because she doesn’t want to be like all the other hollywood older women no man, dating closet gays, always having to fight off younger women. bette davis said growing old is not for sissies.

You hit the nail on the head, she doesn’t want to be without a man, even a cheating one. The novelty of their marriage has worn off and AShton is wanting someone younger and probably have children of his own. He just needs to be careful who he chooses, for they are a lot of young girls that are just looking for a payday. To me, once a cheater, always a cheater.

I never liked them as a couple. I always thought that eventually Ashton was going to want biological kids and someone his own age. Lust and good sex can only last so long and when that wears off there is nothing left in common. Demi looks desperate trying not to look like his mother and keep up with Ashton.

Ashton is a swinger. Known fact, as is Demi. But he picked a really freakin’ stupid girl this time!

Ashton did not have an affair. That’s why Demi stays with him!

There are women who are financially unable to leave a cheater. Perhaps they lack work experience or education to leave and make a life on their own. It is especially difficult for women with children. Demi Moore does not fit in any of the above categories. It is really difficult in Hollywood to be single and she knows it. Hope they stay together for another 10 to 20 years.

is it really difficult to be single in hollywood? why? (not disagreeing, just don’t understand why it would be and hadn’t heard that before.)

Demi’s celebrity fame at this point has everything to do with Ashton I think.

good point. i’m old, so i wouldn’t need an ashton to understand who she is… but to the young crowd, he keeps her relevant i suppose. hadn’t really thought of that (i don’t think of them often!).

Just look at the drama that each celebrity couple goes through before they break up or get married and then break up. First of all, believe it or not, LA is a small town. A lot of the male stars (straight ones) date actresses who can keep them on the front page of gossip sites. Demi is over 25 with grown kids. You have your Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts marriages that are great. Then you have Mel Gibson who was married many years with lots of kids. It is just complicated out there. Very.

guess i had a mind block! makes sense… older person needs younger person to keep them relevant. i’m not too far from demi’s age, so i forget that she/we are OLD to the hollywood crowd! thx.

i just don’t understand in this day and age why people force themselves to stick together if they want to do other things. neither of these two need each other financially, they don’t have kids together, they’ve only been married for 5 years (for someone near 50, that’s just a millesecond in her life). cheat/not cheat/whatever. if you’re both enjoying yourselves, stay together- if you’re not, don’t. if he has a dalliance here and there, does it matter? i mean, it probably would to me, and i’d just say goodbye- let’s just be friends. but, if she’s too afraid of being alone, maybe she’d rather stomach the cheating. who knows. by no means do i think i know it all in this arena- i am actually saying, i don’t understand all of this forced couple nonsense. it’s not the 50’s where people were shunned for leaving a family unit. she’s beautiful and rich, and she already has done the kids thing— so why does she need to cling to any “other”, particularly one so void as asher?
