The biggest problem I had with the whole episode was the "What was really wrong with him?" part. It has strong bearing on whether he had cheated before. Was the aneurysm a prior condition or was it a result of what I decided (because the writing certainly didn't seem clear to me)was poisoning from the carpet in the motel?

If he had the aneurysm before, yeah, Bob could have had loss of impulse control and cheated for the first time.

On the side of Bob being a habitual cheater are 2 things:

The look on Bob's face while hugging his wife after telling her he would never do that to her. It suggested to me that he was back to lying to protect her (and his (lovely) ass).

Then there was House's comment that "playing flag football" was a euphemism for having sex. It doesn't sound like something you would use for marital relations.

The Kawasaki Syndrome apparently caused the aneurysm to kick into overdrive, which I don't really buy. Not that it didn't happen to Bob in their fictional universe, but that it can't happen in real life. And it's pretty common for House to discover there is more than one thing wrong with the patient, usually after four wrong diagnosis, one of which being cancer. ;)
