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.

    I have seen the previews for your movie and had all intentions on going to see it with my husband. I'm sure most couples who are trying to save their marriage had the same idea however we never made it. And things went from bad to worse. Now I will go see it by myself because I feel it may give me some clarity about being cheated on and forgiving more times I can even remember. My problem is really with me.l'm mad at myself for allowing this man to abuse my trust.It was not until months later I realized 8 years of lie after lie. We are seperated now and live apart and slowly I'm starting to c me. So tomorrow I am going to go by myself to see your movie.Keep me in your prayers as I will keep you in mine. I will leave an update as soon as I get confirmation.Be Blessed

    I immensely enjoyed your movie, "Temptation". Many people I knew went to see it more than once and immediately responded to its story line. The singles ministry(St. James UMC) that I am apart of is having a Bible Study using yours movie "Temptation" as the catalyst for discussion on relationships and how we become complacent within them. If there are any particular points Mr. Perry you would love for the movie audience to understand, be aware of, please respond and expound on your own personal thoughts and feelings that would concern our church's movie discussion. As the facilitator of this discussion I would be honored by your response and would convey your views to the group. Thank you

    Yes, I've cheated on my mate before, well before we was married and after i had found out about that fact that he had a baby boy (I so desparately wanted to give him).I thought the baby was a new born but he wasn't when i found out about him and the DNA test was already done... So we where together for about two or three years before the baby was born... I didn't cheat with just anyone I went back to my ex-boyfriend which would have been my husband until he was caught cheating...I was pissed and hurt...I wanted revenge, I didn't know what to do besides give in to the temptation of my ex... I was wrong and i felt guilty, so I told my mate and ask for forgiveness and i decided cheating isn't worth it....Plus i'm deathly afraid of catching a disease.... So, cheating while being married is wrong so NO, I've never cheated on my husband....But on a boyfriend yes....I take my vows serious unless its heaven sent!!!!!But then I know I'm cheating on my soulmate with a man that doesn't actually LOVE (he cares) but doesn't LOVE me anyway....

    Dear Mr Perry, Thank you for your new movie, Temptati0n. It made me feel emotions that I should have felt a few years ago. I have made many mistakes and I know if I had seen your movie 2 years I would have made different life choices. I know your movie will help many people. May God continue to bless you and your family.

    Hi Tyler, Thank you for this movie, I have all your movies this is by far my Favorite. I am going to see it again.

    I saw the movie this past weekend and I must say it was a great movie. It had a message and of course these issues in the movie are real life situations that people often tend to "act like" they don't exist. I think Kim Kardashian did a wonderful job in her role. I believe many people don't give Kim Kardashian credit but she did turn her negative into a positive so I can respect her for that. What's wrong with that? I think the choice to cast her for the part was perfect!! Many won't get the concept and message of this movie because they can't be honest with themselves and see reality for what it is...I think we are all tested at some point in our lives and you have to live with the choices you make...(Good or Bad) Continue to make movies for all people to watch and get some type of message from it....Marquis B

    I went to see the movie and at first I kinda dozed off (just being honest) but after getting past the counseling session, I was wide awake and I must say that was the best movie you've made to me. I've heard different opinion about this movie but I have always like to see things for myself because everybody view things differently. Keep up the good work Tyler, you are so awesome. It had a great storyline and was so real that it brought back memories of when I was cheated on. People should just get out if they feel the relationship isn't working or get help to make it work, but don't drag the other person thru your stuff. But overall the movie was educational and inspiring. Thanks again.

    I went to see this movie with my fiance and it was great! I think that sometimes people think that the grass is greener on the other side but it isn't always that way!. Thank you for making such a great movie that can speak to the hearts of many. I had a Facebook friend post that some people were trying to write a petition to ban Tyler Perry movies. I don't know what got into me but I managed to tell this person what I felt about that. I told him that you are making positive movies that give inspiring messages to people. Your latest movie could have given someone the eye opener that could save their life and relationship. Thank you again for such an empowering movie and please keep up the good work. May God continue to bless you and all of the work that you do! Sending you support all the way from Texas...

    Ok! I have to give it to you Mr. Perry. I love Madea, but I loved this movie more. I found myself in a situation that was almost the same as the movie. I was confused. I recently got engaged, I found myself not to be excited when an engagement should be a beautiful thing. Well it isnt easy when you have someone on the side. I was this close today calling off my engagement there wasnt anything anyone could tell me to leave the side guy alone. When I saw this movie Judith remind myself so much of me. My eyes just about popped out of my head. I got the message not only that I understood the message. It isnt worth it let it go and I think its that time for me. Thank you Sir!

    Mr. Perry I was cheated on 3 times in 2 different relationships. Twice by the same man. I often wondered what was wrong with me? Why is it that I didn't seem to be enough? I had given my all and yet it wasn't enough. I left my own child behind to move in with this man & help raise his 2 children. He had no car ' I was his transportation, yet when a blast from the past came along he cheated & then brought me back an STD for my parting gift. I could have cheated many times but I was taught if its not working you simply tell them and get out before you make an unforgivable decision. Thank you for this film.
