after all, isn’t that what we promise each other in our wedding vows? But from what we see in this ministry to marriages, is that it doesn’t seem to make much difference.
Over and over and over and over again, from the correspondence we receive and the comments posted on the web site we read of spouses cheating on each other.
I just wanted to scream and cry at the same time (especially for this heartbroken bride).
I looked for and found Steve in the other room, hugged and thanked him for not putting me in the place of wondering how to handle that depth of grief and betrayal, and how to continue on in our marriage, because of his cheating.
Why get married if you want to date someone else eventually?
That’s what I’ve thought of repeatedly when a spouse writes and tells us of her or his spouse dating someone else.
Many times the ink is barely dry on the wedding certificate and I wonder, WHY?
Why make the promise if you have no intention of following through on it, or if, when you are tempted you won’t do what it takes so you don’t give into the impulse to cheat on your spouse and on God (because when you make your wedding vow, God is included as one of the “witnesses” of your promise)?
