“Help! My spouse is in love with someone else!”
We’ve heard those horrible words in different forms so many times from those that write to us, here at Marriage Missions. It’s bad enough that their spouse has cheated on them. But then the cheating spouse claims that he or she is in love with their affair partner. And the spouse who is left behind, who is telling us his or her story, is devastated!
And understandably so!
“Infidelity is one of the most thoughtless, dishonest and cruel acts of self-indulgence imaginable.” (Dr Willard Harley Jr.)
And we couldn’t agree more with that statement! Infidelity is cruel to the nth degree! Just the thought of having a spouse, the person who pledged to love and be faithful to you for the rest of your lives, the person you have given every part of your heart and body to —just to think that this person could throw your love and commitment away and pledge love to someone else, is inconceivably cruel! No one deserves to hear that “news” from his or her spouse.
