You Asked: He Cheated and Gave Me a STD

Dear Sugar

I just found out that my fiance cheated on me and gave me a STD. I love him and I want to be with him, but I just don't know if I can trust or forgive him. I don't know what to do — I don't want my son to have a broken home but I can't tell if I will ever be able to move past this. Please help. — I Was Cheated Wendy

Dear I Was Cheated Wendy,

I am so sorry to hear about this Wendy. Cheating is one thing, but cheating and risking the health of someone you love is just absolutely unacceptable. When you're in a committed, loving relationship, it's imperative to be truthful with one another and he completely deceived you so I don't blame you for feeling confused.

You say you don't think you can trust the man that you plan on making your husband, so I think you already know the answer to your question. Although you don't want your son to have a broken home, you both might be better off if you end this relationship before saying I do. You deserve respect and commitment from the man you're with so if I were you, I'd put your health and your son first. He knew what he was risking by cheating, so although you love him, you need to love yourself more. Good luck.
