In your opinion, is this marriage valid in the eyes of the Catholic Church?

Scenario:

A young man and a young woman have been dating for a while and things are beginning to get serious.  The young woman tells the young man that she plans to remain a virgin until marriage and would not marry someone who was not a virgin.

The man assures the woman that he is indeed a virgin, and the couple gets married after three years of dating.

Five years into their marriage, the husband informs his wife that he had lied about being a virgin, and had had sexual relations with a few of his girlfriends during college.

The husband and wife have a great marriage, but now the wife fears that their marriage is not valid (null) in the eyes of the Catholic Church because of what is indicated in Canon Laws 1097 (Error about a quality of a person) and 1098 (Error induced by fraud).  She's afraid that her husband's lie might make the marriage invalid.

Please take a minute and read the Canon Laws mentioned above.

In your opinion, is this a valid marriage in the eyes of the church?

Thanks!
