Celebrity Divorces: Sandra Bullock and Jesse James (When Is "I'm Sorry" Not Enough?)

This post deals with a question raised by the ongoing divorce saga between actress Sandra Bullock and her alleged cheating husband, Jesse James. The question of the day is: When is "I'm sorry" not enough? In other words, if your own spouse, "Sluggo," committed adultery, would you take him back if he said, "I'm sorry?"
According to numerous news reports, James has not only apologized for his alleged infidelity, but also has indicated that he knew he would eventually get caught if he committed adultery. Also, as an apparent part of his cathartic confession, James has also been reported as essentially saying that threw away and "self-sabotaged" his own marriage.
Is this enough for Ms. Bullock to take him back? I have no idea. And frankly, I believe that it's a decision to be made by her, or between the two of them. But how would you react if you were the victim of adultery? How do people decide when it is appropriate to take back a cheating spouse, or when they should see a divorce lawyer?
What do you think?


  1. I can only speak for myself, I would not continue on in a marriage if my spouse had been unfaithful.
    I have an extremely low tolerance for cheating-if you are not happy in the relationship-I prefer that you leave and file for divorce rather than to cheat and just assume I will never find out about it.
    I find the whole aspect of it extremely rude and cowardice.
    The moment I find out he is cheating is when sorry is not enough. :-)
    Have a great one, cheers!
