what is a "convoluted" relationship??

i have a good buddy who has been married for 20+ years and for the past year having an affair. (NOT WITH ME LOL)
we have often had philosophical discussions around this, as i cant fathom staying in a relationship and cheating.
he said to me his relat with his wife is "very complex and convoluted".
i think all relationships are complex, but what does convoluted mean re a relationship??

twisted how?

there is rumour locally that they stay together for public profile etc as my friend and his wife are both reasonably prominent figures. i dont know her well but others say she is not a warm person

all i can fathom is that it cant be a loving marriage if he has continued this affair for a year. well its not what i would consider a committed one, as to me love involves fidelity and respect.
