In a marriage if both husband & wife have cheated & had sexual relations with other people, does this break the nikah?? Or does the husband still have to give 3 talaq to end the marriage?

sex outside marriage is a massive sin, for which both of you should sincerely repent and vow never to do again.

however, it does not break a persons marriage. To dicorce his wife, the man says talaq to his wife just once, not 3 times. ONce is enough. Giving a triple talaq is a major sin, and only a single divorve should be given. That way, if the 2 people want to remarry in future, they are still able to.
