For most men, any act of infidelity from their women would imply the only direction their relationship can possibly go is down.
Derrick busted his girl with another man who would later come to explain himself as an old friend of his girlfriend.
What surprised people was the fact that despite busting the two in the act, he was as calm as the sea on a hot summer as he sought to know why the two would resort to such a betrayal.
People online sympathised with the man as they also applauded him for not taking the sinister route which would have potentially caused harm to one of the parties.
Another video emerged online of Derrick having a conversation with the man who munched his girl , and again, it gained a lot of respect.
Barely days later and Derrick has pulled another fast one on everyone as he announced that he had forgiven his cheating girlfriend and the pair was ready to move forward.
In the post, the lad posed for selfies alongside his girlfriend whom they share a son together.
“No one is perfect. To my love and mother of my kid Emily, I forgive you.I wish you long life and wisdom, we have come a long way,” he wrote.
So what made him go back? Well according to Derrick, his lady stood by him when he had nothing and that sort of loyalty meant their relationship was worth fighting for.
“The fact you stood by my side when I was nothing, I wrote down the bad things but there was more of good things than bad, I'm not perfect and no one is. I love you queen,” he told his lover.
