Often times, unhappy people meet other unhappy people in a similar situation, and start an extramarital relationship, a.k.a. an affair. And no, it’s not always just about sex. Many times, an affair serves to fill an empty emotional void. But, with the extreme stress and social pressure they’ll both face, can a relationship that starts out as an affair succeed and end up as a happy, long term relationship?

Yes It can. But both parties have to let go the past and concentrate on the future in order to make it work. And if that fails, they should all just have 3 somes with the other partners Grin

At times it does work out , but many of them end up being one of those relationship that end half way
cos both of them started just to be there for each as a result of betrayal and emotional pain they have experienced.
All  in the name of sympathy and to assuage feelings of loneliness which the left partner has created in their life

When ppl are used as a tampon for others' wounds, it rarely could end up well!
