At the end of the day, it’s your decision to make, whether to give a second chance or not. It all boils that to what your values are and what you can bring yourself to live with. I personally believe that cheating is totally unacceptable in a relationship. I won’t be able to be truly happy in a relationship without trust and I don’t think I can fully give myself to any cheating partner ever again. I could care less if it was a drunken mistake, or any slip up whatsoever. Cheating is cheating, no matter how you want to slice it.

From my experience, once trust is broken, it never truly returns. I'm yet to find anyone who ended up with a great partner or marriage on the second try.

It depends on you. For me, I have given cheaters a second chance and even if they do nothing wrong, I will never be able to trust them again. The relationship is ruined because they can't win my trust back. Once it is gone, it is gone for good so for me, the answer would be no.

Here's the problem with people who cheat. If things got bad to the point it happened once, the chance of it continuing is very likely. I feel if someone cheats, that's it, they made the choice to break their relationship by cheating, and therefore I wouldn't give them a second chance. If my GF cheated on me, and she didn't admit it to my face right after, then that's it, I wouldn't stay with her if I find out. 

I just think, once a cheater, always a cheater. As well, trust goes right out the window once someone cheats. So I think it's best to move on, because if someone truly cared and loved you, they would never cheat on you.

I would say you should listen to your heart. Have a sit-down and understand the circumstances that led him or her to cheat on you. You may discover that it was just a short time lust or something like that. That is something that can be assumed to be "water under the bridge" and forge ahead. 

Is also important to have an expert's opinion.
