Consequences of marital infidelity
Illustration case of marital infidelity
Mr. JJ has been married to Ms. PI for 15 good years. God blessed their marriage financially and gave them two handsome boys and a pretty girl having respectively 14, 12 and 5 years old.
Everything was going well for this peaceful home until the day when Mr. JJ was called on a four-day service’s assignment out of his country. For a particular reason, he was obliged to return back home rather than expected. Just after arrived at airport, wanting to keep first in touch with his parents, he decided to visit them directly. To his great surprise he will find there his children without his wife.
After talking a while with his parents, Mr. JJ brought back home his three children. As soon as he arrived, he entered joyfully in his house up in his bedroom where he will find his wife practicing adultery on their marital bed.
Shocked by this awful fact, Mr. JJ will unfortunately have a heart attack and will die instantly.
Oh that’s very sad, do you guess the consequence? Due to financial instability caused by the death of their father, these three children for whom a bright future was designed have regrettably ended up as gangsters causing incredible crimes in their community.
According to a study carried out by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) based in United States, about 25% of husbands and 15% of wives had an extramarital relationship.
These figures give us a substanti
al indication of how infidelity can produce a negative impact in a single home like we have seen in our illustration and much more globally in a nation or whole world scale.
‘‘But did He not make them one, having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth.’’
