One reader says, “There’s a distinct possibility that she was just using you to get her education and debt paid off. You did nothing wrong. It’s not your problem if she finishes her education or not. She is an adult and can get a job just like everyone else.”

Another Commenter Thinks

Another responder writes, “You didn’t acknowledge her side of the story. Cheating does not necessarily mean that she hated you and abused your trust and money for the whole time that you were together.”

A Third View on The Story

A different person states, “Just throwing her out with no notice when you know she can’t support herself seems a bit vengeful. The way you tell the story makes it seem like you’re not just breaking up with her; you deliberately want to hurt her as much as possible.”

A Final Perspective on the Matter

Another person comments, “Cheating is absolutely a reason to throw away a relationship of any length because the kind of person who will cheat once will do it again eventually.”
