How to Forgive and
the Wounds Brought on by Adultery
Need To Go To The Root
of the Problem!!
Are you hurting, angry and resentful because your spouse committed adultery? These are normal feelings to have after finding out your spouse has been with another person sexually, intimately and emotionally. Having a successful marriage after adultery has four main aspects that need special attention, they are: Forgiveness, Accountability, Managing Emotions and Self Healing/Marriage Restoration.
Forgiveness = If your spouse is truly sorry for their behavior and they have a need for repentance and a willingness to work on inner healing and save the marriage then it is your duty to forgive them.
Accountability = rebuilding trust with your spouse. Both husband and wife need to work at this. The cheater needs to be accountable and the one who did not cheat needs to accept and trust spouse again. We can't do this without putting God FIRST in our lives.
Managing emotions = It's normal to have strong emotions after finding out your spouse had an affair, but at some point in time those emotions need to be dealt with through forgiveness and accountability. The truth is you will never forget and there will be times that the pain will come back into your emotional bank but that doesn't mean to keep throwing stones at your repentant spouse.
Self Healing and Marriage Restoration = Marriage sanctified and blessed because you have restored yourselves and marriage to God.

you are the one who cheated on your spouse and are seeking to be

people don't know that marriage
belongs to God? They believe marriage is created for their own
happiness and selfish desires, but that is not the way God designed
marriage to be? God designed marriage for couples to serve one another
in real love. This is your purpose for marriage. Not until
couples start working together to bring the roles of marriage to the
table can marriage be restored.
cheat because they feel intimately and emotionally separated from their
husbands. Husbands cheat because they feel intimately and emotionally
unattached to their wives. Who or what is causing the emotional bonds of
marriage to break? Couples do it to themselves by NOT managing marriage
according to its Creator!!
Have To Change Our Perspective
the summer of 2010, on the CBS evening news, they called the prevalence
of adultery happening in marriage today as the “Tiger Woods
Syndrome”. Do you see how
the world views immorality? Of course you really cannot expect these big
time newscaster’s to say that the adultery
pandemic that is wrecking havoc on marriage today is because of
Godlessness—they might get fired! Oh no, they have a script they must
read and read it they do!
news broadcast went on to say that 80% of all marriages will be affected
by adultery, by either one or both spouses at some time in the lifetime
of the marriage. Is this
surprising to you? Well, it is not to us because we know what it
takes to restore a bad marriage. Frank and I have
already been there and done that.
it is true that someone who has trouble keeping his or her marriage bed
pure has an addiction and it can very well be called a syndrome, but
what causes the addiction or the syndrome? To fix the root
of the problem the addicted individual needs to seek inner
healing, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually—they need to fix
themselves. No one can do that for them. They
have to want to do that for themselves! Sex therapy is not going to
repair years of wrong thinking and depravity within the heart and mind
of an individual.

adultery and fornication cause us to be poor in love and sick in our
