Eva Longoria knew her husband cheated during their marriage — and gave him a second shot at love. Should she have?

There’s an old adage that goes ‘once a cheater, always a cheater’ and I firmly believe that. Unfortunately, so should have Eva Longoria Parker, who, blinded by love and a desire to make things work, admitted that she forgave hubby Tony Parker for cheating early in their marriage only to have him do it again; the two are now divorcing. Should you ever take forgive your man for being unfaithful?

Here’s the problem: at some point or another, every man has cheated in some capacity. He may have simply thought about sleeping with another woman instead of actually doing it, may have kissed someone else drunkenly during a night on the town, or he may have completely fallen head over heels for someone else. There are varying degrees.

Tony slept with another woman early in the couple’s three-year marriage, but the Desperate Housewives star is now divorcing him for exchanging hundreds of texts with a former teammate’s wife. He may not have actually been unfaithful per se the second time around, but the emotional infidelity was too much for Eva to handle — and rightfully so. Why sit back and painfully wait for the inevitable to happen?

Be wary if you decided to forgive your man for cheating. As contrite as he might be, he still knows he’s got another shot…you took him back once, and you might do it again. For your sake, I say kick him to the curb! He doesn’t deserve your mercy.

Have you ever been cheated on, HollywoodLifers? Did you take him back? If so, did he do it again? Tell me your stories below!
