Purely to apply jumper cables to this board, I relay the following.

A therapist (PhD., psychology; woman; in her 60s; a therapist for 40+ years) states that an affair can sometimes help a long-term relationship (10+ years, say). Apparently, Esther Parel (look up her books) shares that view.

What say you?
Yes, it can, so long as the cheating partner does not get emotionally involved with "cheat-ee."
Yes, but only if no. 1 above is true and also, the cheater discusses it with his/her partner.
No, any cheating on the side is ALWAYS going to hurt the long-term relationship.
