I found this amazing site (www.MarriageMissions.com) which takes a Christian approach to building and enjoying a longlasting and fulfilling marriage. It talks about soooo many things in regards to marriage… being married, preparing for marriage, overcoming problems in marriage, and etc.
I absolutely love it because it has given me a different outlook on certain situations one faces while married. Best of all, it uses scripture to support statements made.
Today, I started browsing the section about extramarital affairs. Although Im sure there are hundreds of thousands of sites that touch upon the subject, this site gives insight and tools to help prevent and overcome extramarital affairs. It truly is a more common issue than I think people realize. These days, husbands and wives do not have to lie to their mistresses (whats the male version called???)). There are people who WILLINGLY involve themselves with married men and women. There are women who, for some strange reason, feel there is no problem with being with a married man on any level. Some even go out of their way to be that other woman… as if it is a title they are proud to wear. Ignorant women ((like those featured on a recent Dr, Phil episode)) like this are not rare. Knowing this, wives (and husbands because men are the same) should be more proactive in ensuring home is taken care of.
I dont place blame on anyone who has been or is currently being cheated on by their spouse. Although I do believe it takes 2 to make a marriage work, the fact that your mate decides to step outside of the home is not the fault of the spouse who chose to remain faithful. Even if there are no problems at home, infidelity may still become an issue because we are ALL human. The Bible warns us of “sexual immorality” and temptation. God instructs us all to be cautious in our dealings so as to AVOID situations that may allow the devil to get the best of you.
I could go on and on BUT I encourage you all to view this site… www.MarriageMissions.com. Even if this isnt an issue in your marriage (and I hope that it IS NOT) this site provides a lot of useful information. 🙂
Just thought I’d share this smidge of very important info: “Statistically only 3% of married men marry their affair partners and if they do only 3% of these marriages work”. In other words, you reap what you sew. #GodIsGood
