Katherine Poxon, 22, and Stephen Swallow, 44, both admitted planning to attack her husband Steven when they appeared in court today.
But Mr Poxon has forgiven his wife for her affair and they are now back living together with their young child in Pontefract, West Yorkshire.
He was even sat in the public gallery at Leeds Crown Court, where she and Swallow were due to stand trial for conspiring to murder him, before they pleaded guilty to conspiring to cause him grevious bodily harm.
A previous court hearing was told that the young mother had allegedly asked her lover Swallow to kill her husband after he threatened to take custody of their child if she left the marriage.
The hearing was told that Poxon had allegedly sent her lover a text message to 'get the job done'.
