If you’re a good guy, can infidelity be overlooked? Shockingly, Caroline Manzo's answer is yes. In a revealing interview with In Touch, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star opens up about her views on marriage — and says that when it comes to her 28-year-marriage to husband Albert, she would never throw the towel in over one mistake. “If Al cheated on me 25 years ago, one night, that was then and this is now,” she tells In Touch of a topic she writes about with brutal honesty in her new book, Let Me Tell You Something. “No one on this planet could say with 100 percent certainty that their partner never cheated. I have no indication that he has, but if it didn’t happen yesterday, last week, a month ago, I’m not worried about it.” EXCLUSIVE: Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice Make Peace
Caroline admits that the earlier years of her marriage were a struggle — having three children in three years and almost no money. “We could hardly afford diapers,” she says. “Those were tough times.” Caroline’s happy to have powered through those years but says that if Al did stray, she would understand and forgive. “If your husband is a good guy and a provider and you have a tremendous connection, you can’t throw your marriage away over a one-night stand,” Caroline tells In Touch. “My husband is my best friend. Marriage is worth the fight. I would go to hell and back for him and he would do the same.”
