Why is Latina Vanessa Bryant staying with her cheating hubby, Kobe?!

I will never, ever understand women (and men) who stay with their cheating spouses. I think it's one thing if it happens only one time, the person confesses and apologizes right away… then I can see MAYBE forgiving a person. But if the man pledged to be faithful and then repeatedly cheats on you, WHY are you still with him?

Case in point: Vanessa Bryant.

The long-suffering wife of LA Lakers basketball star Kobe Bryant has reportedly been cheated on many, many times. The two finally seemed to have called it quits last December but now, just days before finalizing the divorce, they seem to be working on a reconciliation AGAIN!

Seriously, WHY, Vanessa, WHY?!

That's the only thing I really want to ask you. Why would you go back to a guy who has cheated on you in the past? Do you really think he can change? Cause I sure don't.

Not to mention the fact that there is literally no other reason for her to go back, either. And by "no reason" I mean "no financial reason". They married pretty young and never had a prenuptial agreement, which means she'll get quite a nice amount of Kobe's fortune when the divorce is finalized. In fact, he's apparently already signed over the deeds to his three mansions over to her. So… again, Vanessa, WHY?!

Okay, so maybe she still loves the guy. Or maybe she's actually doing it for the kids. Clearly she doesn't need to do it for the money. Though, let's be honest here: living with a lying spouse that you can't trust and are probably fighting with (cause, really, how can they not be fighting all the time?!) is not healthy for your kids. And, on top of that, being with a man who may love you but clearly doesn't appreciate you isn't doing anyone any favors either.

So I'm hoping that she'll wake up pretty soon and realize she's making the biggest mistake of her life by reconciling with Kobe. I mean, his basketball skills aside, he's clearly not a very good husband. And she deserves better.

What do you think of Vanessa Bryant reportedly reconciling with cheating husband Kobe Bryant? Do you think she's motivated by love or staying together for the kids? Share with us in the comments below!

I think when you've been with someone that long, and put up with so many years of yes glamour, but mainly bullsh**, it's not so easy to just let it go or throw it away. She's put most of her life and best years into this marriage, let alone two daughter caught in the middle of all his. So I don't blame her at all for making the decision to reconciliate with her husband. She's only human. P.S. I LOVE KHLOE KARDASHIAN!!!

In my humble opinion, whether we understand it or not it's their perogative to remain married or split up.  We simply get to wach from the sidelines (literally and figuratievely;o)

To Harry Beever : I have to say that what you chose to opine is a rather simplistic generalization of an entire community.  Whether a married couple chooses to stay married  or not is their decision and being Hispanic has nothing to do with it.
