She Had Two Affairs During Their 19-Year Relationship, and Her Husband One. But They’re Still Trying to Make It Work, Is It All in Vain?

Relationship therapy is something many couples seek when they wish to make amends. Yet, it’s surprising to see how many couples still seek such help when their relationship is perhaps past saving. 

A Twisted Love Story

Sometimes it’s better to end a toxic relationship to allow both parties to move on and become better people.

But this love story took a different path. This story is as twisted as they come.

Both partners want to make amends, yet neither of them is willing to let things go.

Jessie’s TikTok (@ellerbetings) shares many relationship stories exposing couples who have had affairs.

But this one couple takes the cake. They’re still together after the man cheated and the woman subsequently had two affairs. It’s astonishing. 

19 Years of Issues

Molly and Josh have been together for 19 years, but their relationship issues started long ago when Josh was unfaithful.

Josh shared that they got through this difficult time a long time ago.

Since the first affair was Josh’s fault, they had agreed to work on the relationship and do what they could to get through it.

They both agreed to put in the work to get back the love they had lost.

Yet, Molly shared it wasn’t something she could let go of and forget.

Even though she told Josh many years ago that everything would be fine between the two of them, it was not the truth, and it led her to do bad things too.

It might seem like Molly’s downfall, which involves a 5-year relationship with a man and a 1-year relationship with a woman, stemmed from Josh not “putting in the work” he said he would.

Josh even suggested that Molly wouldn’t have had affairs if he had put in more work.

Yet, Molly stated that isn’t why she did what she did. 

She Wanted More

Molly had asked Josh to be more present and speak more openly about his feelings for years. However, she doesn’t feel he delivered on this.

And the relationship subsequently broke down, leading to numerous toxic instances and therapy.

Toxic relationships require therapy, or at least someone in the middle, to calm things down.

And while Molly and Josh don’t shout at each other, the emotions and mood are tense, and Josh doesn’t get to say much about how he feels.

After Josh admits he feels like Molly is interrogating him, Molly’s voice raises, and she gets more upset.

Josh shares that he feels they have been working on things, speaking more openly, and getting to a better place.

Yet, Molly’s emotions prove she doesn’t feel the same way. 

Two Sides to the Story

Molly doesn’t agree that things have been going well, which is why they have ended up needing therapy to share their story and get help.

It might seem pointless to speak to a therapist if they need to break up. However, it can be a good idea so that both sides of the story can be told. 

His First Time Being Honest

For Josh, this is the first time he has been able to speak up for himself and how he feels.

Josh says they have been sharing more, and it seems this might be the first time he shares how he truly feels.

Maybe She Is the Guilty One

After all that he says and how calm he is, Molly still thinks he has an attitude and doesn’t care.

Maybe it is Molly that is truly guilty and not willing to help improve the relationship.

If things can work, both of them need to be level-headed and willing to leave things behind to move forward. Yet, how can they be when they are on different pages?

What are your thoughts on this relationship drama? Do you think it is possible to make amends after multiple affairs between two partners? Is it best for them to start new lives?
