As Oscar Wilde once said, “Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same.” It’s a quote many married couples can relate to – especially those who have strayed. Not everyone, however, believes that adultery equals the end of a relationship. Many couples soldier on and survive cheating scandals, and some even say that infidelity has made their relationships stronger. These famous folks, for example, all found a way to work things out – something that can’t be easy when your face is plastered all over the tabloids.
20. Bill and Hillary Clinton
Perhaps one of the most famous cheating scandals of all time occurred back in 1998, between then-President Bill Clinton and his 22 year-old intern, Monica Lewinsky. But Hillary Clinton stayed by her husband’s side through it all, and Bill by hers. And he was still standing proudly beside her when she accepted the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2016.
19. Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin
When Congressman Anthony Weiner accidentally tweeted a photo of his genitalia to the masses, it looked like his political career – and his marriage – was over. The New York Democrat attempted a comeback mayoral run in 2013, but it imploded when, incredulously, he was once again caught sending lewd photos of himself to women. Through it all, however, his wife and top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin has rather amazingly stood by her man.
