The "once a cheater, always a cheater" is often used to warn people against getting back with someone who cheated on them. But not everyone heeds this warning. Many people choose to get back together with, or remain with, a partner who cheated on them. Maybe they're convinced that it was a one-time "mistake" that won't happen again. Or maybe they're just blinded by love or infatuation. Whatever the reason, it's a risky choice that many, many people have made, with mixed outcomes.
In a popular Reddit thread, someone asked: "Women who have taken back partners who cheated on you, how did it work out in the long run?"
