It’s so hard to tell what is “right” and what is “wrong” in these very complicated situations. For one thing, none of us will ever be able to know the whole story since we are not actually involved in any of the relationships. There is probably a lot of information that will never come to light and a lot of falsities that will never be corrected. Nevertheless, there is always a media spin on these situations and like it or not there will always be couples who are well liked and those who are vilified. And this is something that is especially true when extramarital affairs are involved.
Ideally, it’s nice to think that these are just people who met at the wrong time in their lives, but at the same time there have been plenty of situations that could have been handled with more tact. These couples have weathered the storm of their affairs and now many of them face the greater challenge of remaining together. It will be interesting to see who is in it for the long haul and which duos are going to split (if they haven’t already).
