Relationships Started In Infidelity Can Last? Don’t Bank On It

As an online divorce review site, we like to stay on top of what’s being said about divorce and relationships out in the blogosphere. That curiosity led us to a recent post over at Divorced Moms in which a contributor going by the name of “Claire” postulated that relationships started through affairs can make it.

“If you were cheating just for the excitement, or just to get back at your spouse for their prior bad acts…odds are you aren’t looking for a healthy relationship to come out of it anyway. I do think there is an exception though,” writes Claire. “I think that there are times, such as when your marriage is essentially over, and you are just in limbo mentally and emotionally, when a relationship that begins with an affair can end in a happy relationship.”

While the blog post is interesting, I wouldn’t put a lot of stock in the enthusiasm of the headline, which reads “Will My Affair Turn Into a Healthy, Long-Term Relationship? Yes!”

The further you get into the piece, the more you discover that Claire simply doesn’t have the credentials to back it up. She was married nine years prior, and somewhere in that time, she managed to have three kids with her husband before jumping ship for her new relationship. She even admits later in the piece that she is left “with a bit of uncertainty about the future of my relationship with 40.”

Not as much certainty there as the headline suggests.

The reality is that the vast majority of affairs are started for reckless and selfish reasons, and those are never good qualities for a long-lasting and meaningful relationship. It’s also no example of how relationships should be to set for your children. While marriage can be hard and ultimately not work out, it’s important to maintain your integrity and look for the same out of a partner. You won’t find such qualities in an affair.

If you have been affected by an affair and you’re ready to call it quits in your marriage, read our online divorce reviews for your next best options.
