After infidelity has occurred in a marriage, many couples assume that the situation is hopeless and that divorce is the only option. They don’t see how the trust can be restored in their relationship. If you are dealing with unfaithfulness in your marriage, you might feel the same way. It might help to know that a great many couples have been able to recover from adultery. Many even say their marriages have improved and are stronger after infidelity than before. It all depends on how you handle the situation.

No family is perfect. Just as no one is perfect. We bring all of our issues, problems and concerns to the table and usually take it out on the people who are closest to us. Families weren’t designed to hurt one another, but to love and comfort one another. For Genesis 13:8 says, “So Abram said to Lot, “Let’s not have any quarreling between you and me, or between your herdsmen and mine, for we are brothers.”
