to not understand how fast cheating can be forgiven?

Recently a work colleague who is in a long term relationship started hooking up with a guy from work.

It was found out by her partner over the weekend and this week he's still taken her away for her birthday. With loads of happy smiling photos.

How in less than a week can it be forgiven?

Another friend (a couple of years ago) found out that her boyfriend had kissed her best friend. Boyfriend was forgiven almost instantly, and the best friend was never seen again.

My old room mate found out her boyfriend had "potentially" cheated so they had to go to the clinic together to get checked out. Later that night shes cooking him dinner??

Are these just the people I tend to know or aibu to not understand how anyone could get over that so fast?

All you see is the public face of their relationship - you don't see what goes on behind closed doors, and you can't see into their hearts.

I doubt they get over it. You don't know what they're feeling inside.
ime, people tend choose what's less painful and / or what's less frightening. Perhaps it's less painful and/or scary for those people in your examples to stay than to end the relationship.

Guessing the man says : I'm so sorry - it was her that came on to me you see - it was all HER fault.
Get rid of the woman.
Solved.
Simples.
Yes I agree that you only see the public show they put on to save face.
