Unbeknownst to him, Tierra was well aware of his adulterous activities and decided to indulge in her own sweetest payback by seeking comfort in the arms of his best friend, giving into the age old ideology that what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
Though Markel at one point changed his cheating ways, a new temptation crosses his path and he reverts back to his scandalous ways. Not willing to sit idly by while Markel continuously disrespects their marriage, Tierra begins and affair of her own, introducing problems neither one of them anticipated having.
