If you haven’t heard by now, Tichina Arnold’s husband Rico Hines has been up to no damn good and she made certain all of their friends and family knew exactly what his secret extracurricular activities consisted of. That story got us thinking. At the very pinnacle of feeling betrayed, disgusted and even afraid for your own health – would you have forwarded your cheating husband’s sex videos to your contact list? What, if any actually exist, are the appropriate ways to deal with being cheated on?

We already know dragging homeboy’s worldly possessions outside or filling a tub with his most expensive sneakers and setting a fire aren’t competing for the top spot in that list.

And perhaps it all depends on how you find out your significant other has been unfaithful. Are you on a Maury stage or are you walking into your apartment to catch him in the ultimate act of disrespect? Do you calmly tell him it’s over, pack your things, quote a bible verse and leave? Or do you mentally plan his downfall and disappear from his life without a word?

If you’re living with this person and on an even more complicated note, if you share a mortgage and a child or two with this person, your response and the way you handle the news will differ dramatically from someone in a 1.3 year relationship who can just stop by, collect their duffle bag of overnight necessities and vow never to return again.

Have you been cheated on before? How did you find out and how did you respond?

    I think immediate dissolution of the relationship is the appropriate response.
    I don’t ask for a lot from a long-term partner, really. Fidelity, no use of hard drugs and don’t beat me are not unobtainable stipulations. If the person cannot adhere to those, the only truly firm dealbreakers, they are clearly not the right partner for me.
    Did she go too far? Well, in my opinion, not really. He may have been humiliated, but I find it hard to feel sorry for him.

    WHY? Nobody wants to see that!

    Moving foward and never looking back is the best decision to me. I was cheated on years ago. I was bitter as hell until I decided to move on and breath off the communication link. Years later, she contacted me through Facebook (I hate Facebook) and we had a conversation.

    She talked about how her life is going great. However, her love life has been rocky. Men have cheated on her and used her. I won’t lie, I giggled inside.

    Moral of the story: Move on and let karma handle it!
