  1. (DUBAI)  I am hurt, I am bearing forgiving my husband from the past 18 1/2 yrs he has to have one woman or the other in his life every time. Yesterday he threw the remote in my face and hands. They hurt. I cannot please him anymore in bed, not with his queer ways. I told him I will never have physical relations with him till he comes to Christ and gets off other women. O God, help him to be free. Cancel the apointment of death. A tired mum cum wife who wants to end every thing.

  2. (SOUTH AFRICA)  1) for the past few years I have enjoyed going away once or twice a year with female Christian friends for weekends (no husbands, no children). Is this okay according to Gods Word? My Husbands is backsliden but never complains about this. 2) Our daughter had a baby 10 months ago. Ive been sleeping over by them every week to help her. Is this okay with God or should I stop?

    Want to please God not man. Need Scripture for guidance. Thanx so much. Heather

    1. (USA) Hi Heather, I’m not sure what this has to do with “what Bible verse has helped you most in marriage,” but your questions seem “relatively” simple to answer (even so, you need to pray about whatever I write, as to whether God leads you according to what I write).

      As far as “going away once or twice a year with female Christian friends” I really can’t see any problem with it, if it doesn’t cause problems in your marriage. I get together with Christian female friends, and my husband Steve gets together with his Christian male friends from time to time, and we’re happy for each other. We just make sure that we honor each other and it’s not at times when one or the other would feel neglected.

      As far as your “sleeping over” at your daughter’s every week to help her with her daughter, it depends upon what God shows you. Are you doing this to show that you condone her live-in relationship with the father of your grandchild, or are you doing it to help your daughter? I personally, probably wouldn’t feel comfortable sleeping over, but rather finding other ways to “help” without spending the night unless they were married. But I can’t really tell you what to do. Pray, seek God’s heart on this, and do accordingly.

  3. (USA)  Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as god in Christ forgave you.

  4. (USA)  1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    I try to read this daily to keep my heart guarded with what God says Love is.
