I'm curious what your takes are on this specific scenario:
Middle aged husband is in an unsatisfying/"boring" relationship with his wife. It's substantially influencing their livelihood and their children dislike their constant fights. Husband loses control of himself when near a close coworker and cheats on his wife. He feels rejuvenated and then intentionally does it again repeatedly. Eventually he realizes how important/precious his family and relationship is. He stops cheating and focuses on being a better husband. His relationship with his wife is now excellent and they feel closer than ever.
Fast forward a year. The husband decides that it would destroy his wife if he told her what he did. Decides to never let her know because everything right now is happy in their family and it might ruin their children for potentially no gain.
What do you think of the husband and his actions? Would you risk destroying the relationship and ruin the kids lives just to get the truth out? What if you knew that everything would always be ok if you kept it a secret?
