    Actor David Boreanaz made some surprising revelations about the effects his infidelity had on his marriage to Jaime Bergman.

    Last year, "Bones" star David Boreanaz came clean about cheating on his wife Jaime Bergman with infamous Tiger Woods mistress Rachel Uchitel. If you think that would end his marriage, you are apparently wrong.

    Boreanaz tells TV Week that the experience actually strengthened his ties to former Playboy Playmate Bergman, whom he married in 2001.

    "[The affair was] a bonding experience, in the long run," claims the 42 year-old actor. ""In a sacred ground like marriage, you find yourself out of it at certain times for reasons unknown that can be destructive. There could be a demon that kind of comes out and overtakes you."

    He characterizes the affair as one of those "extremely rocky" moments that all marriages experience.

    "Do I believe in giving up?" Boreanaz says. "No, I don't. I'm a fighter. I'm a lover."

    Boreanaz and Bergman have two children: A son, Jaden, aged 9 and a daughter, Bella, aged 2.
