Yep. When my STBX got busted down a rank for his first affair, back in 2005,he came home crying, said (I still remember his exact words to this day), "I fucked up bad." I had known about the A (but couldn't prove it) for a year by then, so I wasn't at all surprised. I was just relieved to finally have it out in the open, and see that he looked honestly sorry. Yeah, my mistake. A couple weeks later he was back to treating me like shit, and I asked him why he'd even cried that day. I said, "Were you crying about possibly losing me, or were you crying about getting in trouble at work?" He said, "Getting in trouble at work." The saddest thing is that I was so messed up that I stayed with him anyway. :(
Don't fall for those tears. They mean nothing.
