Can an Affair be Forgiven?
Certainly an affair can be forgiven, and if everyone concerned sincerely desires the marriage to be repaired, AND there is true repentance, AND they can each honor new vows of faithfulness, so be it.

Then there is the other side, when there seems to be no reconciliation. God is a covenant God and the covenant of marriage was broken badly. A broken covenant releases those in covenant.  Some have questioned if the injured parties can marry some one else?

Might I suggest that God is fair and just, and when his children are caught in a bad situation, He is able to offer plan B for a new future.  God has said that it is NOT good for man to be alone.

Let me tell you a story that is probably true - -  Many years ago there was a young married couple who enjoyed the company of some very good “Best friends.” One day they discovered that their mates were having an affair with the other party’s spouse, and these unfaithful ones had already decided they wanted to leave the present marriages in exchange for a new arrangement.

Our two innocent young people were devastated, especially because the one "adulterous" wife had not only been untrue, but she had also deserted her tiny baby and young toddler in order to have this other husband.

Our victimized persons seriously talked it over and decided that they really liked each other, and perhaps the most sensible and best thing they could do for the children and for each other, was for them to marry as well. So they did.  Love and respect followed.

The new wife raised those boys as her own, and eventually they had two more boys that were theirs. They have been happily married for many years with grown grandchildren and are actively serving the Lord. 
This was an unusual situation and they made the best of it with a happy ending
for at least two of them.

Great story. Reminds me of our Father's redemption. He turns our bad into good when we strive for Him. It's never perfect, but when God's in it, it's as close as we're gonna get this side of heaven.

God is a covenant God indeed. We are weak but He is strong and when reconciliation seems impossible, His grace can do amazing things. We just have to be open to His plan.
