Re: How an affair can save your marriage?! Really!?
If an affair is revealed or discovered, and leads to reconciliation where prior marital problems are resolved, then yes, that wake-up call can lead to a stronger marriage. We have/had members here on TAM who had that happen.
(Don't know if that's what the article is about, just going by the premise in the OP's post title.)
Love is an ideal thing; marriage is a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
CELIBACY IS NOT HEREDITARY.
