Q: My husband keeps cheating on me even after I confront him. We have 5 children. I don’t want to leave him, but he just won’t stop. What should I do?
Asked by: Florence
A: My dear sister, you can’t allow your husband to continue to live this way.
Look at it from his perspective, he thinks he has the best of both worlds. On the one hand, he has a wife and five children, and he can give the appearance of being committed to them. On the other hand, he can have multiple affairs and get away with it.
What you need to do is go for help. Because if you simply put up with it, you’re an enabler—you’re helping him to continue in his sin. And you’re giving the illusion that somehow he can continue to misuse you, and misuse his family, and he can get by with it. So sit down and confront him; tell him that you are going for help and that he can no longer live his life in secret. The truth is going to come out, and he had better experience some deep repentance and accountability because if not, he’s not only going be in trouble with you, but he’s going be in trouble with his pastor, his counselor, and others that you’ll bring into this mix.
I am praying for you, and I trust that your husband will step up to the plate and have the courage to do what is right and finally submit to God.
