This is the story of a married couple who do not seem to be well suited for many reasons. In the story , the wife has a fling with an old flame. You do think that any marriage or relationship can survive when one partner has been unfaithful?

I have known marriages that have survived an affair. It would depend on the couple I guess. You can forgive but it is hard to forget. I couldn't do it.

I suppose it depends on the people.

@millie02 Yes it would. My best friend's husband left her for another woman. She took him back. They were married over 20 years. I couldn't have done it but they are happier now then they have ever been.

Personally for me unfaithfullness means end of relationship,as no trust left.

Many people would think this too.

I think it depends a great deal on the couple but it would certainly test a relationship. I don't think I'd be able to forgive such a transgression.

I know that I would not be able to.

If the unfaithful one really regrets what they did, then yes it should survive(that's my opinion), but only one time. Next time if something like this happens, straight divorce.

Yes, it can. It depends on the couple but many do work through it. I think you can actually come out stronger in the end. But it involves a lot of soul-searching and a willingness to look at things in a way that is not simply black and white. People are always quick to blame when sometimes they need to just try and understand.

even if it survives for some reason...it will be damaged.

Having a fling means you are not committed to the relationship
