How could it be that we let our love fall?
There were times in our life that we had it all.
As the weather got colder, my attention did shift,
but I could never be ready for this.
Yes, my attitude changed. Then you cut me so deep.
Is it possible to push a woman to cheat?
So I pray not for gold nor for worldly riches.
I pray for strength, wisdom, and forgiveness.
Did I not tell you enough how beautiful you are?
Do I deserve the bleeding of this never healing scar?
Would it be different that night if I said please don't go?
That me and the kids love you, that you're food for my soul.
But I didn't; swore and hollered with names,
Not knowing our love would never be the same.
Then you told me what happened and I started to cry,
And I felt like half of my spiritual body had died.
As much as you're sorry, should I take some of the blame?
Should I forgive and forget? Would you do the same?
Is our marriage worth saving? Have I any more to give this?
I ask the Lord for strength, wisdom, and forgiveness.

I did wrong in my marriage, but I never cheated on my wife with anyone. Yes, I was wrong for giving a coworker my phone number and she kept calling my phone and my wife started asking why was she calling so much. I can say I was wrong. I love my wife, and I want my family back. Please God.

My heart aches, my eyes fill with tears as my world falls apart around me, as I realize how people hurt one another without a thought of how lasting the scars will be. Where is the compassion, the understanding? Has everyone become cold hearted to other's emotions? There are days the pain is too much to bear, and days when I'm ready to take on the world ‘cause you've made me feel so loved. My life is like a roller coaster ride. Our emotions are hard to control but with you and our children by my side and God holding our hands, our love will see us to the end.

I came here looking for something to put my emotions to. I knew my husband was cheating, I was in the same room, I watched. I should have said no and I didn't because I cheated on him before we got married so I thought it was even, but it has hurt him and hurt me. I feel bad for not saying no but he should of known to say no too. I guess this poem helps sum that up for me though.

I know how it feels to love someone so deeply and then be betrayed by their cheating. To forgive is easy, but to forget is not. To this day I still think about what she did. I'm married now, but she is still doing those things. I feel bad for my 4 year old son who has to see her doing it.

You must not forgive an infidelity if your spouse does not repent. If your spouse repents then you forgive but after that you can not trust and do not be naive, you must surveillance your spouse constantly under mutual consent, because that care is essential, and you both need counseling for each individually and for your marriage. God help you!

I have been where you are and my husband cheated on me a lot of times and I forgave him everytime, because it is what Christian married couples should do, but to the person who cheated... They seriously need to seek God for deep repentant heart. As I prayed for my husband and deep repentance for him, He left. and divorced me 5 years later and is a miserable man to this day.
