Sorry friends for having to keep the details of the last 70 days or so very brief…I am in a lot of pain and really can’t re-hash…so I hope the following suffices:
I was neglectful and cruel to my wife for a good many years. We will be married 9 years in Feb 2010, and have 2 beautiful babies. She ultimately suggested divorce…then we started trying to work on it…then she cheated on me once…we are now reconciled…but her infidelity has wounded me like I cannot describe.
Given that Jesus cites adultery as the one cause for the dissolution of marriage…I suppose therefore that I would be within my rights to pursue a civil divorce? Would if have to be annulled? At this point, we have been enjoying (only been 1 1/2 weeks on the reconciliation path however) intimacy, friendship and happiness like we’ve never known in our marriage. She tells me that we are perfect, and that I’ve been the husband she always wanted me to be. She might have that…but she has a “wounded” me…each day, I suffer greatly at the thought of what she did. I don’t know if I can hang on, in truth.
