Yes they can! Any broken relationship can be healed. It does not matter how devastating the circumstance, or even how long then chasm has existed. So why aren’t all relationships fixed? There is only one reason a relationship remains broken, and that is that one or more parties do not want it. A healthy relationship is never a matter of can’t, but a matter of “won’t”.
God has forgiven us through the blood of Jesus to those who accept it. It is hypocritical for a believer to refuse to forgive another, even if the other person is not a believer.
So, the real question is not “can they”, but “will they”? The choice is up to you.
