The short answer is yes, but let me elaborate. First of all, there is no excuse for infidelity. I don’t care what the situation is, because whether you’re dealing with an individual issue or relationship issue, most of the time, with very rare exceptions, you have options. You can address those issues before you cross the lines of fidelity, even if you have the worst partner in the universe, if they’re not meeting your needs, you can take them to counseling so they can talk about those issues, or you can end the relationship, so there are no excuses for infidelity.
