I met my husband 21 years ago. It was an arranged marriage and we both were raised with strong Christian values. Despite the marriage being arranged by our parents I was very comfortable with the partnership because the Christian values we brought up with presented sufficient compatibility to make it work.
However, recently my husband confessed to relationships with another women. He also stressed upon the fact that the relationships were merely physical and did not involve any emotional angle.
I am finding it very difficult to trust my husband again and seek strictly biblical advice over this matter. Please help!
How do I deal with my husband’s infidelity biblically
The problem you mentioned isn’t a rare one. But before we proceed further you should understand that the fault is not with your husband. It is the devil that influenced him into such an immoral and sinister act. This usually happens when people stray away from God and the teachings of Jesus. The real issue isn’t that he cheated, the real issue is that he wasn’t praying enough.
It is said that the devil doesn’t approach you with a red face and horns, but in form of what you always desired. So, if your husband is feeling guilty of what he did and repents it, it is highly advisable that both of you blame the situation on the devil and forget it. It is also necessary that you pray to god together and move on with your life.
However, it is important that the same devil does not enter your household again . So, you should definitely consult a church and a pastor in your area on how you could keep yourself and your family safe.
