Have You Ever Been Cheated On? Have You Ever Cheated or Thought About It?

OK, so one time I had an accident in my car. I was so upset. I had the car towed to the shop and had it repaired. They tried their best to make it like new again. They fixed the damage and repainted the area where the car had been hit. But no matter how they tried to match the paint to the original color, they couldn’t. So every day after that, when I would go to the car, I would always notice that the paint didn’t match. Every time I got into the car I would see that area where the paint was different and it would always remind me of the wreck. And even though the car had been repaired it never rode or drove the same again. 

Later, I found out that because the car had been damaged it was worth less than it was before the damage. I thought about this the other day when I was thinking about people who cheat in relationships. When someone cheats, or you have been cheated on, the relationship is never the same. Sure, you can stay together, work on it and repair it, but every time you take a hard look at your relationship you will be reminded of it. I know many of you reading this understand what I’m talking about. The relationship was once so amazing and new and now has lost its value. You have tried to move on but it’s difficult to trust again. I get it, I SO GET IT!

That’s why I wrote Temptation, my new movie that opens this Friday. I WANT YOU TO SEE IT THIS WEEKEND! In this movie I talk about being tempted, I talk about how to forgive, I talk about how to move on from it, and I also talk about how sometimes the decisions you make when you decide to cheat can stay with you for the rest of your life. This movie is powerful. I showed it to several hundred pastors, then had them over to my house to talk about it and the sentiment was the same. This movie has the power to save relationships. So please go see it this weekend if you can. Bring your husband or your wife, your girlfriends and boyfriends, single's ministries and church groups. The subject matter is too strong for kids but it’s perfect for young adults and older. I can’t wait for you to see it. TEMPTATION OPENS EVERYWHERE THIS FRIDAY.

    JUST WENT TO SEE THE MOVIE AND BOY I MUST SAY THAT IT HIT CLOSE TO HOME. i WAS HOWEVER THE ONE TO DO THE ACTUAL CHEATING. DURING MY FIRST MARRIAGE I CHEATED WITH MY NOW HUSBAND AND GOT THE SAME TREATMENT THAT I HAD GIVEN MY EX. THIS MOVIE BROUGHT BACK SOME MEMORIES OF WHY I CHEATED IN THE FIRST PLACE. i AM NOT CONDONING MY BEHAVIOR..FAR FROM IT. IN THE LAST 13 YEARS I HAVE REALIZED THAT WHAT MY EX AND I SHARED WAS A SEASON FOR ME. WE DIVORCED IN 1997 AFTER 10 YEARS OF MARRIAGE AND 4 CHILDREN. I LATER MARRIED MY NOW HUSBAND IN 2000. THE ENTIRE ORDEAL WAS LIKEN UNTO THAT OF WHAT THIS WOMAN WENT THROUGH WHERE ANOTHER MAN PAID MORE ATTENTION TO HER AND WHAT SHE NEEDED THAN HER SPOUSE. THIS CAN BE THE BEST THING OR IN THIS CASE THE WORST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN. IT CAN EITHER MAKE YOUR SPOUSE STAND UP AND TAKE NOTICE OR SEND YOU STRAIGHT INTO TRAGEDY. i HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE BOTH SIDES AND NOW I AM ALL THE BETTER FOR HAVING GONE THROUGH IT. 13 YEARSLATER I STILL DEAL WITH THE QUESTION OF WHETHER MY SPOUSE NOW WILL CHEAT ON ME AGAIN AND HAVE TO STOP MYSELF FROM ACCUSING HIM AND TRYING TO BUILD THAT TRUST BACK. THIS CAME BACK ON ME FULL CIRCLE BUT WITH THE HELP OF GOD I AM WILLING TO GO TO THE LIMITS TO MAKE SURE THAT I WALK RIGHT IN GOD'S SIGHT NOT MAN'S SO THAT I MAY BE AN EXAMPLE TO MY UNSVAED SPOUSE. LADIES/GENTLEMEN PLEASE VOICE WHAT YOU WANT AND NEED TO YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHERS SO THAT YOU WILL NOT NEED THE VALIDATION OF ANOTHER PERSON.

    I saw the movie at a matinee. I'm 29 and have never experienced true love. Men mainly want to sleep with women first regardless if they are Christian men. Anyway I find myself alone day after day and this movie is a reminder not too steer off again. I gave my heart away once after I saw satan and feel into the temptation and lie that this may be my one chance to actually fall in love and everyone is a bit flawed I will just read the bible with him I thought until I started to forget the word in my own heart. It was my fault I should have kept my guard up with him. In the end he told me to go to church and I will be alright after I almost begged him to stay in my life in shame, humiliation and tears. Just as the mother shouted out satan in that movie to the guy before he pushed her down but I was afraid to give my body but I almost did and that was bad enough. God redeemed me even after I tried to give my body away to a guy just to get the other guy off of my mind. I was in pain Tyler, a pain I did not even know existed but one I had only witnessed and heard about and that other guy was an even bigger mistake and I could have gotten hurt by him. Now I know. It is difficult living a life of purity while trying to live in this world and love God and follow the commandments but it is better than living one's life as the ending of this movie.. God's supernatural love has been keeping me because I invited it in and I asked for it to sustain me and prevent me from making mistakes again. I did not realize my most valuable asset was, "My love", until my heart was broken and I began making all kinds of wrong decisions. I do not mean, "my love", in body I mean it in being, me as a person in existence. I had to forgive over time myself and all of the ears that closed on me when I needed to vent. I had backslide and did not even know it. Now I know what that means, now I understand the importance of grace and mercy while all along God was watching me. I know the power in my choice and who I have authority over. I'm learning TO BE love in waiting with patience and on earth...Now I am reminded again that.... When love leaves everything else takes precedence. I will not ever let it be taken from me through deception again nor will I deceive myself as a straight woman. Thank God for multiple chances and a renewed mind, body and spirit...

    Tyler, My husband and I went to see Temptation and it is a list see for all married couples and the engaged. It doesn't pay to commit adultery.

    Hello Tyler, I just wanted to encourage you with something I heard a few months ago - "When you acknowledge your critics, you give them your power and validate their words. They are not important until you respond." Author - T. D. Jakes wishing you the best and praying for your continued success. Ephesians 3:20

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Me and my girlfriends went to see this movie and we loved it. The value of this movie was just awesome. Devil vs. Jesus. Jesus always win...I'm 24 and married and its not easy but this movie opened my eyes a lot. Marriages get dry, dull, boring and all you need to do is COMMUNICATE with your spouse and work on rekindling your love. Gotta get it on DVD but gotta see it again with my husband the the movies. Love your work Mr. Perry! Can't wait to meet you one day. It'll happen soon I hope

    Mr. Perry, congratulations on your newest movie, Temptation. I've always enjoyed your movies and will contiue to anticipate anything with your name preceding. Unfortunately, after seeing Temptation, I left the movie theatre a little disappointed. I can relate to the character of Judith. It's unfortunate, firstly for someone so young to devote themselves naively to one person for so long, who forgets her birthday two years in a row, just to be 'tempted' by a wolf in sheep's clothing. Yes I understand the title of the movie, and you've made your point....but in the end, Judith's character is unable, from what it seems, to escape unhappiness. Other characters have moved on with families or fears conquered, but Judith character is left visually alone, lonely and with an isolating disease. This is what I think keeps HIV in the dark. The movie ends with a once very beautiful, smart, educated woman, who's highlite comes every 30 days with a visit to a pharmacy. Just wish you wouldn't have ending her life well before her death.

      I agree with you on the point that you made it seem like HIV+ people must live a life unfulfilled, alone and lonely. This picture only makes it harder for people people of color to come to terms with the disease that hits our community the hardest becasue of the stigma attached to it. So much stigma that it limits communication between would be lovers to a point where they don't even want to bring up the subject of protected sex. I love the film, but I still had a few problems with the ending. Perry never delved into the fact that Harley was a carrier, and had no consequences for his actions of spreading the disease to countless women. Was it because he is male and/or wealthy. And lastly, why is it that only the women suffered from their mistakes and have to continuiously pay for it for the remainder of their lives while others get to live and love again. Same thing happended in For Colored Girls.

    Mr. Tyler Perry....I am curious what do you eat for breakfast each morning? They say "a great breakfast refreshes the mind and offers the fuel to complete the day." I just saw Temptation. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Everyone did an exceptional job. I do believe since I could relate to Brice's character the most, his position and his level of commitment and determination truly pierced my heart. I was overjoyed with tears with the depiction of his character. He was truly phenomenal. For stronger character development, I would have like to see Judith journal some of her feelings as they were changing. Counselors are big capturing the moments as they transcend. I believe this would help us understand "why" Harley became the seduction she could not resist. I believe the conveniences of life were not her true inducements especially when she knew right from wrong. I loved it. I loved the music. Based on Brice's strong character, I do wish he would have stayed married to Judith. I just believe everyone needs to believe in God's second chances especially for the youthful view market. I hope you have a wonderful weekend at the box office.
