Many women's clothing and jewelry brands promote women as bold, strong, and independent, but yet, for many women, their lives seem anything but that. It is not easy to walk away from a failed relationship or a cheating partner. We, as normal humans, may not understand the reasons for putting up with a cheating partner. But we have to accept that many do, and the reasons must be fairly compelling to take such a life-altering decision.
She is afraid of change
It has been a long time since she and her partner have been in a relationship. They have mutual trust for each other, and they have shared a comfort zone. On being cheated, it is hard on her part to accept this harsh reality. She is filled with fear and uncertainty; change scares her. She cannot get over the illusion of a happy love life, so she decides to stay with her cheating partner.
She is too attached to him
Love is powerful when you believe in it. Betrayal and infidelity do not rule out love fast. She wants to be safe in the "love cocoon", and this makes women do extraordinary things like forgiving infidelity. If she is married, then she is serious about her marriage vows and wants to abide by each word. The bitter end doesn't tear her apart, instead she wants to forgive and continue.
A strong past with him
She must have invested in energy, time, and money. She is ached with her partner's infidelity because of strong emotional involvement in the past. So, moving on becomes difficult and she gets wrapped up in her own fear of the impending unknown. She believes her love life, may improve so, taking him back seems the best option.
Social circle gets affected
In many societies and cultures around the globe, society frown upon a divorced or separated woman, she is considered a potential threat to all her married friends. So, people start distancing themselves. In order to keep her social life active and healthy, she covers her partner's infidelity and showcases a normal healthy marriage.
