While marriage infidelity is seemingly grounds for divorce in the Bible, it doesn’t always have to end that way. Thousand of couples who have had adultery occur in their marriage, have gone on to live many happy years together. I’ve seen firsthand how this can happen. Years ago, I (Joel) fell into marriage infidelity myself. Today, Kathy and I enjoy an Outrageously Happy Marriage. Because of our hardships, we are able to teach others, how they too, can repair their marriages and end up with an Outrageously Happy Marriage!
Why is there so much infidelity in marriage happening in the church? There are so many reasons. Hard hearts, Stupidity and Bad Character. The traditional marriage teachings in the church have not helped. Wrong marriage teachings create unhappy marriages. Unhappy marriages create opportunities for adultery. We offer answers. Real answers. We are glad you found us. You can learn what God taught us to have a healed marriage – and begin a new life.
Yes, there must be forgiveness from the offended spouse. If Kathy wasn’t able to forgive me, then we wouldn’t be enjoying the bliss that is now our marriage. Yes, forgiving infidelity in marriage is not easy – but if you both are committed to a healed marriage, and if a husband will lay his life down for his wife, loving her as Christ loves the church, forgiveness can be offered fully. We will help you and the first place is the advice that is provided in our two books, The Man of Her Dreams/The Woman of His! and Book 2: Livin’ it and Lovin’ it! Infidelity and marriage are both very touchy issues that are debated in different corners of the church. Our position is that adultery, when repented of, is not grounds for divorce. Adultery is a deep wound though that can haunt a marriage for years to come. It is incredibly important that you learn how best to handle the pain and memories. There is a right way and a wrong way. Beside the two books we offer, we have so many other wonderful resources that will help you to not just keep your marriage together, but to experience true joy together that you never thought possible.
