A 39-year-old man posted a question on the social media platform Reddit over the weekend, igniting a ferocious debate dividing people between right and wrong,Fox Newsreported.

The post has garnered more than 4,500 reactions and some 4,000 comments.


Sharing his personal story, the man asked, "Am I wrong for not giving my cheating wife another chance?"

He shared that his wife and he have been together for more than 14 years, and they have a seven-year-old daughter together. His wife recently "went away to Butlins on a girls' trip with her friends and sister."

One day she called him crying, "admitting to sleep with a man."

He said that the man in question "is supposedly 10 years younger than her, and she said she lied and told him she was going through a divorce. She says she doesn’t know what came over her, and she just wanted to see if she still had it but got carried away."

He further wrote, "I want to leave her. She's begging me not to, offering marriage counselling, never going out again, never drinking again, etc., and now her friends and sister are calling me too."

He wrote, "I feel like I'm insane. Am I wrong for not even considering forgiving her?"

The post since then has divided the internet, with many people telling him to leave his wife while others saying to forgive her and try marriage counselling.

One user wrote, "Say bye, it will happen again and again and again if you let it."

While another person shared a completely different point of view, writing, "Marriage counselling for sure. It is possible to get past this."
