It is indeed heart-wrenching to break up with someone you deeply felt for. Even though we eventually do, it is hard to move on in most cases. If you've offered a lot of love to your former partner but they ended up cheating on you, well, they are evidently...for a lack of a worse term, stupid. What makes them even more stupid is their excuse for cheating. Moving on from exes with such hilariously dumb excuses to cheat on you seems like nothing but a blessing in disguise. Reddit user u/Starboy3210 asks "People of Reddit, what is the dumbest reason your (ex) partner gave for cheating?" Here are some of the most ridiculously dumb excuses exes gave for cheating on their partner.

9. Read all terms and conditions carefully

"'You never specifically said I wasn't allowed to sleep with [girl he had slept with before we were together]. I thought you meant I wasn't allowed to sleep with NEW people. ' This was well after a conversation we had had agreeing that we were monogamous and exclusive."-u/hveistuve

10. Reconsidering the idea of a romantic partner in...3...2...1.
