Does A Leopard Change Its Spots?

Every now and then, I come across an article that falls under the title "the truth is stranger than fiction". In Tysons' Corner, Virginia a man has chosen to wear a sandwich board stating that he's a cheater in hopes of winning his wife back after infidelity. Whether or not this is some sort of strange publicity ploy is still up for debate, but its an interesting tactic in winning your spouse back after being unfaithful. I would say that as much as 25% of our divorce clients have dealt with infidelity at some point in their marriage, and I don't think that most of them would take someone back just because they decided to publicly announce to the world that they cheated. Would this work if your spouse had cheated on you? Do you think that it would help your relationship and ensure a better marriage? I'm always interested to hear other people's perspective on the articles that I post to this blog. Let me know if you think that this guy and the parties' marriage has a chance of survival.

I do not think a leopard changes it's spots. A person can change how they react to something, but once a cheater, always a cheater. Remember when a woman steals your husband, the best revenge is to let her keep him

There are two kinds of cheaters: The chronic cheater and one who will do it once and never again. I personally know someone who is the later. The later can change it's ways but the chronic cheater however, can't. If the person cheats on you once, it may still have a chance but if it happens twice, get out of the relationship as son as you can because that leopard will never change it's spots.
