It happened again. Another broken heart resulting from infidelity. Just like with the last boyfriend, he hadn’t even confessed. She’d only found out because of that suspicious-looking charge on their joint credit card. He’d finally come clean when she confronted him, and she ended the relationship, devastated. She’d told him from the beginning she had a long history of cheating boyfriends and could not take one more deception. And yet there she was, in the very same situation…

Then there’s the friend who called yet again at 11:30 at night after her boyfriend admitted that he no longer loved her and couldn’t bear to spend another night with her. It was the fourth time a scenario like that had played out and she couldn’t believe it had happened again.

Or how about the woman who finally found the courage to pack her bag and leave six months after moving in with a boyfriend who suddenly began verbally abusing her the moment her boxes were unpacked? She wanted to know why every relationship ends up this way, in yet another cycle of abuse that seemed to appear out of nowhere.

What do you say to these women? Do you offer them sympathy? Share your own horror stories…
