I always thought it was "twice and you're out" -- that is, you can repent of adultery once, but not twice. I suppose this is based on D&C 42:25-26: "But he that has committed adultery and repents with all his heart, and forsaketh it, and doeth it no more, thou shalt forgive; But if he doeth it again, he shall not be forgiven, but shall be cast out."

Grampa Bill comments:
Not at all certain of this, but it appears that this might be instruction rather than doctrine. That is the Lord here instructs Church Leaders how to handle recidivist adulterers... cast them out or excommunicate them. It is not offered as doctrine, binding the Lord's hands as to whether they can ever obtain forgiveness from Him. But I may well be wrong in my understanding of this passage.
Love y'all,
