In this 21st century the idea of having a monogamous, faithful, committed marriage is becoming increasingly difficult. There is so many subtle ways designed to relax and wear down healthy marriage boundaries. Infidelity is rampart and becoming the norm for many. I wonder if one really thinks about the consequences of their actions. You are cheating! You, your spouse and life!
Infidelity is selfish. You simply disregard your marriage vows and go outside of the relationship to get your desires met. The question one should ask? Why did you get married after all? Marriage is a commitment between one man and one woman who agree to come together as one and cleave to one another! Was God included in those vows? Then there really is a problem!
Now many want to redefine what marriage means to suit whatever they want it to mean and leave God out?
There is a group called Poly-Boston. It is a group of 500 couples that is rapidly growing, they believe in “consensual romantic love” with more than one person. What is happening to our values? It is becoming increasing evident that there is a move to break down the traditional marriage.
Does not your fence indicate where your property line ends and begins? When you step outside the boundary of marriage to have sex you are defaulting on your relationship. Did you know your body belongs to your spouse and vice versa? You have and are continuing to also endanger your spouse’s well being!
When infidelity takes place there is a breach in the relationship. Marriages and families are being fractured left and right this is TRUE within and outside of God’s Church as well! Infidelity is an indication of a lackadaisical attitude towards marriage. The results and statistics are devastating! Allowing any and everything to become acceptable, and embracing the values of a declining society is unacceptable! Just because anything goes; does not mean it is okay for you!
You cannot undo what has been done! But you can start from where you are! Don’t play the outside game. Is it really worth the few moments of pleasure! You are not only cheating on your spouse you are cheating yourself! God knows! You now have a seducing spirit operating in you!
Keeping the dating going in marriage is important! It takes God, integrity, commitment, creativity and character to build a strong healthy monogamous marriage! Get it together!
