Jesse James Engaged to Kat Von D

Have You Ever Dated a Former Cheater?

This time last year, Sandra Bullock was married to Jesse James and had yet to rock her new blunt-cut bangs. In her 2010 Golden Globes acceptance speech, she said about her husband: "I never knew what it felt like for someone to have my back, so thank you." So much has changed in a year. We found out Jesse cheated on Sandra and had a thing for women with tattoos, some of which were Nazi-inspired.

Today, Jesse announced that he's engaged to Kat Von D. In a statement that makes Sandra's Golden Globes acceptance speech only more heartbreaking, Jesse said: "2010 was actually the best year of my life because I fell in love with my best friend." What about the trip to rehab and that teary interview about how much he missed Sandra?

Kat and Jesse had a whirlwind romance, but I'd be a little concerned about marrying a guy with such a recent history of infidelity. But I guess each relationship can be different. Have you ever given someone with a cheating past a chance to prove he can be faithful to you?

what I really want to know is what percentage of the "yes, and it turned out right" are actually being cheated on without their knowledge.

Just to be clear...Kat wasn't the "trashy whore" he cheated with.

Searching Soul, I came here to say the same thing, he sure does look unhappy. Hope everything works out for everyone, though.

wow! they actually look good together...they fit together. I seriously don't get why some women dig doing a married guy...seriously what do you think he'll do to you?!!

I would never. Even if I found out a while into the relationship, I'd end it. I've been cheated on, and I never want it to happen again.

My ex broke up with the girl he was with before me by telling her he had kissed another girl, because he was too chickenshit to just say he wanted to break up. He then proceeded to cheat on me twice (WHY did I take him back?!) and then break up with me over the phone. That experience has left me with two beliefs that I don't think will ever change: once a cheater always a cheater, and to never waste time with a guy after he's broken my trust

If I knew someone had a past history of cheating I would never date them, I just wouldn't be able to fully trust them! To cheat on someone as classy as Sandra bullock with a trashy wh*re like Kat just shows what a complete douchelord Jesse James is! If she believes shes the one and that he wouldn't cheat on her, shes just being plain stupid and naive. I doubt this relationship will last!

He looks pretty unhappy with this new woman. The expression on his face, the body language...this looks like a disaster waiting to happen. She probably enables him and does'nt care about what he does on the side as long as her needs are being met. He's a serial cheater, not a one time offender and that habit is hard to kick. Cheating is his MO and I don't think that's going to change because he found a new woman to be with. They both look a little crazy and I hope this does not end tragically. He has a lot of inner work to do before he's good for any woman.

I dated a cheater, and he cheated on me. On the other hand, I know a couple that has been happy together for years, and they met while they were married to other people! :O My anecdotal evidence contradicts itself, and comes from a small sample size, so I'll just stick with my previous belief that each person and each relationship is different. And confusing. :p
