Watching This Couple Open Up About Cheating is Both Heartbreaking and Inspiring

One couple gets a rare chance to talk openly about cheating within their relationship.

Cheating on a partner is almost always one of those things that totally obliterates a relationship. The worst thing about cheating is that it's a huge breech of trust — something that's essential to a healthy and loving relationship. So, more often than not, it seems like cheating leads not only to a breakup, but a really messy, we're-not-talking-ever-again breakup.

But one couple that sat down with the Scene, a video series from Condé Nast Entertainment, has a cheating story with a different trajectory. Taking advantage of a rare opportunity to sit down and talk to one another in a civil, calm manner, two women whose relationship was dotted with instances of infidelity opened up to one another about the reasons behind their decisions to cheat, and what they decided to do with their relationship in the end. Spoiler alert: These two didn't fully call it quits, proving that not all stories of infidelity have to end in total devastation and heartbreak.
