I agree with jpumkin.. The sexual & emotional betrayal is more painful, but the lies are more damaging. Lying while looking directly in the eyes of a crushed BS is just selfish & cruel.

Would be interesting to take the time to average male/female responses on this. I'm surprised many males actually hate the lying more than the cheating:

For me 2% lying 98% cheating.

Another thing I hate. Being a male victim on this board, seems to be a considerable minority here. The shit just never ends, eh?

I'm going to add that I was hurt more by my WS blaming me for the breakdown of the marriage and for her affair as a result.

Yeah, the emotional rape and sex aspect hurts to the core as a man, but what ended my M with absolute certainty and conviction, was the lying with malice, namely the extreme gaslighting of me.

MY exWW POS bitch wantonly, and with such ease made me look completely crazy in the eyes of my poor DD many times... For the endless emotional suffering she laid upon my DD, allowing her to live in agony because of her soul destroying choices of a true COWARD, she can rot in hell. I hate her for that, and feel no shame/guilt in saying it.

It's not a zero-sum game. For me, it's 100% cheating and 100% percent calculated deception; either one is unacceptable.

I can accept that the cheating was a bad decision (note, I didn't say a mistake).
However, the lying on top of it? That just compounds the bad decision exponentially.

So for me:
Cheating: 15%
Lies: 85%

WH didn't have a PA or ever tell the OW he loved them so the cheating wouldn't have been that painful. It was all the emotional and psychological abuse that hurt the most. Not only lying, but the gaslighting and accusations against me as well. I was so busy defending myself and feeling guilty that I couldn't see what he was doing. So much abuse to cover up something so insignificant.

99% emotional abuse
1% cheating

I think I was closer to 50/50 early on, but I'm probably about 85 lying, 15 cheating right now. The lying is so difficult, but I'm still pretty hurt by the actions as well, and more so the emotional part then the physical part.

About 50/50 for me.

The cheating/sex was worse to think about at first. I might have been able to get over that part with time and remorse. The lying is what made me end it file for D.

What hurts more the lying or the actual cheating?

YES!

No life should be passively relinquished due to the toxicity of others and taking steps to protect yourself may very well be the most important steps you will ever take.

The lying is about 90% for me. He still hasn't admitted to anything that I haven't confronted him with. It makes me wonder how much more I don't know.

90% lying and continued lying, 10% cheating

I would also say my anger was also caused more by the lying than the actual affair.

I do believe I could have forgiven (in time) the physical cheating. But the lies? For so long? With me literally sobbing in front of her begging her to stop? Never. And of course logically, the cheating IS lying so....

Nope.

my feelings are in this order

betray of trust, lying, the home wrecking (my home and the OM's home), everything else, the actual cheating.

this order may be because my father had an A and he and my mom got D recently.

What really broke my heart was the EA, not the PA. What broke my spirit, my trust, my entire belief system was the DAMN LIES and TT. So, for me the lies are so much worse than the A. IMO lies are a bigger betrayal because it's directed at YOU. I am still grieving over the lies my WH has told me. I will never be the same again because of them.

I may have been able to get over the cheating.
I won't get over the lying.

Doesn't help he's still lying!
