一次不忠,百次不用? Is infidelity such an unforgivable sin?

The Crown
returns to 
Netflix with a second season on Friday, December 8! 


It took a while to get into the story in the first season but the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II's struggle as a young woman taking helm of such a big job and her marriage with Prince Philip went beyond the usual court drama - it was a modern love story that a lot of working women could relate to.

Judging from the trailer, it looks like the second season focuses on Her Majesty's dealings with challenges from politics, family drama (the wild life of Princess Margaret) and the rumoured infidelity of Prince Philip (who has just officially retired from public service).

Speaking of infidelity, my most recent Quartz story "Why this Taiwanese man is the dream husband of many women in Hong Kong, Taiwan and China" touches upon this subject.


Cheating is just so common that it is not limited to the wealthy class. I used to believe the Chinese saying of 一次不忠,百次不用 (never tolerate someone who cheats even for once). Emotionally, we (women) want to find the one and only that lasts forever. But at the end of the day, human beings are animals and perhaps we are not designed to endure a long-term monogamous physical relationship. Where is the middle ground?


Here's a video on the meaning of infidelity from The School of Life that might be able to answer this question.

The Crown season 2 might shed lights on overcoming infidelity in relationships. After all, the Queen and Prince Philip are still together today.
