I wouldn't go that far, but IMO trust is the essential bind toward a relationship and if that's not there, then there's no point. If you did cheat, you should come clean, otherwise what's the point. It's like you're living a lie.
In terms of "scum" I think there's a lot of other things that fill that label, like spousal abuse. I'd trade out "scum" for "put" maybe. You know, being unfaithful can happen to a lot of otherwise decent people, but spousal abuse just means you're the bottom of the barrel.
