I just watched "Bridget Jones Diary" the other day (and paid attention this time). The movie has a number of intertwined stories of people leaving their spouses or significant others to be with flings, and they eventually turn around and come back pleading for a second chance.

I'm thinking, were I the one who was left while she explored other relationships, I don't know if I could forgive her. Ever. I wouldn't want let myself open to the opportunity of being hurt that badly again (hypothetically "again"). What's to prevent her from not having the same feelings again in the future? And why would she deserve something so gracious as a second chance, anyway?

Would you give that person another chance?
