Too many men find themselves asking this one question: "What if I can't forgive my cheating wife?" each and every day. It's a question that no man wants to confront but one that a growing number must confront.

Did you know that statistics show that nearly 60% of people admit to having cheated on their significant others? What's more surprising is that women make up nearly half of that 60%.

Cheating has, somewhere along the line, become much more culturally acceptable now than at any other time in our history. At the same time, women are finding more and more "opportunities" to cheat than ever before. Most of the time, cheating is a result of opportunity or getting caught up in the moment than anything else.

Women are working long hours in careers that were once dominated by men. They are, in many cases surrounded by men in the work place and beyond. They develop relationships with coworkers, friends, and even bosses that would not have happened in years past when women were either homemakers or in careers where they were virtually surrounded by other women.

Why Can't You Forgive Your Wife for Cheating?

Because you view it as a betrayal of you more than anything else and the one thing you expect from your wife, without question, is loyalty. The fact that she cheated is, in your eyes, a sign that she isn't loyal to you.

It's understandable to be upset, hurt, or even severely ticked off by her cheating on you. In fact, it's expected. You should not be happy that she cheated but should you forgive?

That's a question that only you can answer. If you're struggling with why you can't forgive though, it sounds like you're looking for ways to help you forgive her for cheating so you can save your marriage.

Is that right?

Here are a few things you need to consider.

1) She didn't cheat because she doesn't love you. Chances are she still loves you very much. Find out how she feels before you invest any time in convincing yourself to forgive and forget.
2) She never promised to be perfect. That doesn't mean that you didn't think she was or expect her to be. The truth of the matter is that living up to those types of expectations can be mentally, physically, and spiritually exhausting for your wife. In other words, she may have had weakened defenses to another man by sheer exhaustion alone.
3) She's still the same woman she was before you found out she was cheating. You loved that woman deeply. Remember all the reasons why you love her and you may find that there is plenty of good in her to warrant your forgiveness.

Even if you weren't able to forgive her in the past maybe it's time to offer that second chance you both want for your marriage. Now is the time to get your ex back before too much water has flowed beneath the bridge.

Stop living a life that is filled with the pain and regret of letting her go. Follow the instructions in this free video: http://www.magicofmakingup.com and end your pain and loneliness today.
