There are times when we, as the betrayed, cannot understand the thoughts, the depression or the addition that controls our husbands. More often than not, the affair is an act of pursuit to gain the adrenaline men seek as part of their chemical make-up. This then becomes the "thing" they seek, they chase and crave through addictions to whatever is holding them in bondage.
Recently, I was shown a letter that Martin Luther King Jr. sent to his wife during his pursuit in life. It sums up what many of our spouses are feeling inside, but can't put into words.
"At a time when I need you, I cannot call you, and I have done this to myself… to us. At this late hour my thoughts are with you, and all you have sacrificed for this struggle. So many have sacrificed and so many have been lost. I wonder how many we must lose…. I pray for discernment and guidance as we journey on. I pray that I can justify the faith you once had in me. I too, often feel that heavy fog you spoke of. Only you and our family, clears the haze…. I love you.”
