Once you have ended an affair, should you tell your spouse or let sleeping dogs lay.
Why would you tell anyone that you had an affair? Especially after the fact? Move on.
I would seriously question your own motive for telling your spouse. If there is a reason that he or she needs to know, for example, if you think you may be carrying a sexually transmitted disease, then I believe that you have to tell your partner. If you are just trying to offload or feel less guilty or brag or make yourself feel good or better in any way, then think before you say anything. Why should your spouse suffer because of something you did? (By the way, when I say "you" I'm speaking to anyone in this hypothetical situation, not to any one person specifically.)
