Hurmat-e-musaaharah taking place even though one was uaware of the ruling

Q: If you don't know about the ruling of Hurmat-e-musaharat, and you find out about this rule about a one month ago, what happens? Will hurmat-e-musaharah still take place or Allah will forgive him? 

A: It will take place. Taubah will get the sin forgiven but the hurmat will not be cancelled.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
