Dear Fonseca,

My family is reeling from my wedding last weekend. My maid of honor got drunk and then made a speech that rocked the room. She stunned everyone when she said she and my husband had relations when I was out of town on a business trip. It happened very early on in our relationship. This brought the wedding to a halt. My husband and I haven't seen each other since because I'm staying at my parents' house. He's begging for a second chance and said the night he spent with my maid of honor meant nothing. He also said it was so early on in the relationship that it shouldn't count as cheating. Should I give him a second chance or not?  I'm on the fence.
