Save trouble with has_many belongs_to relationship

I have a bit of code in a controller that looks like this:

@current_festival.monitor_preferences.each do |pref|
if pref.user_id == @me.id
pref.preference = params[:monitor_pref]
#pref.save
end
end
@current_festival.save_with_validation(false)

the Festival class has_many :monitor_preferences
the MonitorPreference class belongs_to :festival

In the configuration above, the monitor_preference is not saved with the
new
value from the params[:monitor_pref]. However, if I uncomment
pref.save,
then it is saved.

Why doesn’t the @current_festival.save_with_validation(false) not save
the
monitor preferences? FYI, the @current_festival.save… IS saving other
values in this method correctly, and I have validation set to false
because
not all required fields are completed at this point.

If anyone can tell me why this save is not happening, I would be
grateful.
Thanks,
Shelby

When an Active Record parent model instance is saved you only get
automatic
saving of has-many-associated child objects/records when either the
parent
or the child is a new record (i.e not yet saved to the DB). Otherwise
you have to save explicitly.

Some work has been done to investigate the possibility of automatically
saving (updating) existing associated objects if a change in their
attributes
has been detected.
