“He’s the First Man in My Life I Wanted to Follow”: Cheating Wife Texts Husband 7 Months into Her Affair. His Forgiving Response Floors Her.

Growing up, Kathryn truly didn’t understand the meaning of love.

For multiple generations, the men in her family left their wives. That was the only kind of love she’d ever known. The kind that cheats, neglects and leaves. Needless to say, her perception of relationships was distorted.

“The word love was a fictitious thing,” she admitted. “Something that only happened in fairy tales.”

In college, she finally started to explore the adventure of dating, but after getting into a relationship with a man who abused her physically, emotionally and sexually, her perspective was only jaded more.
