"But a man who commits adultery lacks judgment; whoever does so destroys himself.
When I was growingup in St. Paul, my parents fought all the time. They told me it was natural as parents as they try to convey their issues and work it out together. There were times where I got really bothered hearing them fight. In fact, it affected my social life going to school. I was very quite, shy, and passive somehow when I was with my friends or classmates. It seem like I was holding-up this anger inside and I didn't know where to release it-really didn't have anyone to confide or talk to about how I felt.
I remember several times my mom would say "I want a divorce" or "I don't know why I married your dad". This really hurted me because I didn't want to see my dad or mom to separate. I remember saying this a couple of times as I matured, "You two brought us (my siblings and I) to this world together, so you need to stay together to bring us into the world! Then you can get divorce, but till then you need to finish the job you started". Looking back at this, I personally feel parents have to be careful what they say in front of their kids. I wished my mom had another adult she could express our feelings to. I feel parents need that extra support or sometype of fellowship of other adults that are close to share; instead of their kids. Parents need to model for their children. Children are the real victims of their parents actions: adulther, divorce, abuse, etc...It's sad that they can't just speak up on how they feel!

"Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand."-Matthew 12:25
"..Now Joseph was well-built and handsome, 7 and after a while his master’s wife took notice of Joseph and said, "Come to bed with me!"
8 But he refused. "With me in charge," he told her, "my master does not concern himself with anything in the house; everything he owns he has entrusted to my care. 9 No one is greater in this house than I am. My master has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?" 10 And though she spoke to Joseph day after day, he refused to go to bed with her or even be with her.
11 One day he went into the house to attend to his duties, and none of the household servants was inside. 12 She caught him by his cloak and said, "Come to bed with me!” But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house.
13 When she saw that he had left his cloak in her hand and had run out of the house, 14 she called her household servants. "Look," she said to them, "this Hebrew has been brought to us to make sport of us! He came in here to sleep with me, but I screamed. 15 When he heard me scream for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house." ...

"Discussion about Divorce and Marriage
Then Jesus left Capernaum and went southward to the region of Judea and into the area east of the Jordan River. As always there were the crowds, and as usual he taught them.
2 Some Pharisees came and tried to trap him with this question: "Should a man be allowed to divorce his wife?"
3 "What did Moses say about divorce?" Jesus asked them.
4 "Well, he permitted it," they replied. "He said a man merely has to write his wife an official letter of divorce and send her away."*
5 But Jesus responded, "He wrote those instructions only as a concession to your hard-hearted wickedness. 6 But God's plan was seen from the beginning of creation, for `He made them male and female.'* 7 `This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife,* 8 and the two are united into one.'* Since they are no longer two but one, 9 let no one separate them, for God has joined them together."
10 Later, when he was alone with his disciples in the house, they brought up the subject again. 11 He told them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries someone else commits adultery against her. 12 And if a woman divorces her husband and remarries, she commits adultery."
Did you know that adultery is more than "cheating" on a married (1 Corinthians 7)woman as many you think? It is also having emotional thoughtful lust towards a married man/woman! Today is Wednesday, June 2nd of 2004 and I decided to write on this issue after some recent unfortunate circumstances. Some people think committing adultery isn't wrong, so I decided to share them with real-life experiences to give them a bigger picture=>

"SUPERIOR, Wis. - It's not unusual for a divorce to end in anger.
But a woman who lives in Superior, Wisconsin took things to a new level this week with a traffic-stopping gesture that was carried out at the expense of her ex-husband.
The angry former spouse put all her ex-mate's belongings out on the front lawn with signs reading "Free" and "X-Husband Sale."
As if that wasn't enough, she flatted the tires of the man's SUV and spray painted the truck with the word "Cheater" in block letters.
The spectacle triggered enough buzz that it became a must-see stop for motorists to check it out, and even stop for pictures. It created enough of a traffic hazard that Superior police decided to tow the GMC Yukon away.
Superior Police Sgt. William Lear told the newspaper there's no law against spray painting a vehicle in one's own yard.
"If it's a running vehicle and someone wants to paint their own car, they can do it," he said.

"A young woman recently sent this message to columnist Ann Landers: "A man who engages in extramarital affairs teaches his sons that this is OK behavior. A woman who stays with an unfaithful husband teachers her daughters to do the same." A good father, added the letter writer, "remains faithful and demonstrates to his sons what it means to be a good husband. A good mother does not condone...bad behavior from her husband."
According to Dr. Archibald Hart, a psychology professor at Fuller Theological Seminary and author of Helping Children Survive Divorce (Word Publishing), children often are the forgotten victims of divorce. He says divorce is damaging to children because:
*It signals the collapse of the family structure; and the child starts to feel alone and frightened.
*The divorce creates conflicts of loyalty in the children; children often feel pulled by love and loyalty in both directions.
*The anger and resentment between the parents, which is so prevalent in most divorces, creates intense fear and anxiety in children.
*Divorce represents to children the loss of many important things such as home, school, neighborhood, church, friends. Deep depression often is the result of this painful loss.
What, then, are the ingredients of a happy, good and enduring marriage? In his book of enduring wisdom and significance, Three to Get Married (Scepter Publishers, Princeton, NJ), the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen pointed out that faith in God and the development of a spiritual and psychic bond are essential elements of a good, happy and enduring marriage. He observes: "Marriage involves a soul, a mind, a heart, and a will as much as it involves reproductive organs.... The union, therefore, may be described as psychosomatic, in the sense that it affects the whole person, body and soul, and not merely the lower part alone." When Archbishop Sheen says three are needed to make a marriage happy, good and enduring, he is talking about a husband, a wife, and God....
"..But Corona, who is married, was also charged with adultery, becoming the 13th person in the state's history to face the charge...
New York outlawed adultery in the early 1900s. Only 12 other people have been charged with the crime in nearly 40 years, according to reports.
Adultery and public lewdness are both misdemeanors, punishable by up to 90 days in jail or a $500 fine.
Some residents of Batavia said they agree with the decision to charge Corona with adultery.
"I think she should, I mean if she's married," Danny Bastedo, who lives near the park, told WHAM. "Why do this if you're married?"
Bastedo added, "I think it's disgusting. I mean, that's totally wrong. I mean 5 o'clock in the afternoon, come on -- that's crazy."
Corona said her behavior in the park was inappropriate, but insisted, "If you were a passer-by, you would not see anything was going on."

"(CNN) -- After a three-week trial and one hour of deliberations, an upstate New York jury on Monday found Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan guilty of second-degree murder for beheading his wife.
In February 2009, Hassan, who founded a TV network aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes, went to a police station in the Buffalo, New York, suburb of Orchard Park and told officers his wife was dead, police have said.
Aasiya Hassan had been decapitated, with prosecutor Paul Bonanno saying during opening arguments that the long knife used by her husband had left marks on his office's tile floor.
Hassan gave his own closing arguments Monday. Earlier in the trial, he had dismissed his attorney, Jeremy Schwartz, who by trial's end was acting as his legal adviser.
"Mr. Hassan has felt that throughout the tenure of his marriage, no one had listened to his side," Schwartz told reporters after the verdict. "It was important for him in the two hours that he had for summation to get across his side and how he saw his marriage."
Hassan listened quietly to the jury verdict, Schwartz said. Hassan has the right to appeal after he is sentenced, Schwartz said.
According to prosecutors, Aasiya Hassan had filed for divorce less than a week before she died.
On the day she died, Aasiya Hassan agreed to take some of her husband's clothes to his office after he had moved out of their home. He had told her he would not be there, prosecutors said.
"The defendant viciously killed ... and desecrated her (Aasiya's) body because six days earlier she had dared to file for divorce. Dared to seek a better life for herself and the children," Assistant District Attorney Paul Bonanno said in the prosecution's opening statement.
Schwartz, then his client's defense lawyer, said in his opening statement that the couple's marriage was a "sad and unhealthy relationship" and that Aasiya Hassan threatened to embarrass his client and take away his children.
"It ended with 'Mo' Hassan in fear of his very life," he told jurors. "Mo Hassan killed his wife, but he is not guilty of murder in the second degree."
During the trial, Michael and Sonia Hassan testified that their father had become violent in the past, CNN affiliate WIVB in Buffalo reported.
While both said the couple argued, neither recalled a case in which Aasiya -- their stepmother -- instigated a fight.
Police earlier said they had responded to several domestic violence calls at the couple's home, but no one had ever been arrested.
Hassan was the chief executive officer of the network Bridges TV, and Aasiya Hassan was the general manager.
He launched Bridges TV, billed as the first English-language cable channel targeting Muslims inside the United States, in 2004. At the time, Hassan said he hoped the network would balance negative portrayals of Muslims following the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Hassan fired three defense attorneys before the trial. Schwartz was the fourth to be dismissed, though he stayed as an adviser."
"NEW YORK (AP) ―
Deanna Favre says her religious faith and an outward focus are helping her overcome the allegations of improper behavior that have been leveled against her husband, Brett.
Deanna Favre was interviewed Thursday on "Good Morning America" about a book she co-authored with Shane Stanford called "The Cure for the Chronic Life," which is about getting past hard times and patterns of unhealthy behavior.
During the interview, Deanna was asked how she's handling the accusations against Brett Favre, who is being investigated by the NFL for allegedly sending suggestive messages and lewd photos to a woman who worked for the New York Jets.
Deanna Favre says: "I'm handling this through faith."
She did not address whether the allegations against her husband are true or false.
" 9 I took you from the ends of the earth,
from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, 'You are my servant';
I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you

12 Though you search for your enemies,
you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you

Her Affair Destroyed (and Saved) Their Marriage
""Hello, my name is Nancy, and I am a cheater."
It is said that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence--but is it really? Nancy C. Anderson--author of Avoiding the Greener Grass Syndrome--believed that there was greener grass outside the boundaries of her marriage, but she soon learned that it was a lie.
This is video of her testimony, which she shared on The 700 Club in 2006.

"(CNN)–All I had ever known up until I was 10 years old was chaos in my home.
I was the oldest of four children and the atmosphere was volatile for all of us. My father and mother were in constant conflict, making divorce seem like the only possible outcome.
Having married young, they were still trying to figure out how to make life work. They often argued about how to handle finances, especially when there was little money to go around.
I could have ended up a casualty of a broken family, like so many of the kids around me in inner city Baltimore. But my life was forever changed the year I turned 10.
That was the year my dad turned to Jesus. He’d been invited to visit a nearby church for a special event. While there, two men asked him if he knew if he’d go to heaven when he died. He said he wasn't sure.
The men explained Christ’s sacrificial and all-encompassing atonement and, for the first time, my dad understood the path to salvation.
CNN’s Belief Blog: The faith angles behind the biggest stories
He didn’t just accept God’s salvation; he immediately became fired up about God and the Bible. He became an instant evangelist. Whenever my dad wasn't working, he’d take me along to pass out biblical tracts on street corners or in visits to the local prison.
If I went downstairs to get a glass of water late at night, I’d see Dad reading the Bible or praying on his knees. He had to do that when my mom wasn't watching.
My mom didn’t like my dad as a sinner, and she liked him even less as a saint. She did everything she could to make his life difficult. But my father did everything he could to show her love.
When my mom would start with him, he would stop what he was doing and start praying for her on the spot.
One night, my mom came down the stairs with tears in her eyes. My dad was reading his Bible.

She told him that she could not understand how the more she rejected him, was unkind to him and tried to prove that believing in God was wrong, the kinder he was to her and the more he invested in God’s word.
“I want what you have,” she said, “because it must be real.”
They got down on their knees and my dad led my mom to Christ. He led all of us kids to him too and modeled the value of making God the central focus in all that we did.
He held weekly Bible studies at our kitchen table and instilled a love for church in his kids. On the Wednesday nights that he had to work late, I would walk four miles to get to our church. Dad taught me to view all of life through a spiritual lens.
my dad had not exhibited the courage to change, my home would have become another statistic. I would have ended up a casualty, and my own four children might have ended up casualties, too. It is common for children to end up as statistics when men do not accept their God-given responsibilities.
Forty percent of our children go to sleep at night with no dad at home, and the percentage is even higher among minority groups and in the inner city. Divorce is part of the problem, but many men father children without helping to raise them. They have become like the abominable snowman – their footprints are everywhere but they are nowhere to be found.
When fathers come home after a tough day at work, they should come home to serve, like my father did, teaching lessons around the dinner table and leading the family in worship and prayer.
For 35 years, my father had to lift heavy boxes as a longshoreman. But on Sunday mornings, even if he had to work all the night before, he'd wake us up. And I'd say, “But dad, I'm tired.”
He'd say, “No, son. I'm the one who’s tired. But we are going to church. Because for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

CBN News: The Stoning of Soraya M.
"CBN News. Monday, June 29, 2009
The story of another Iranian woman who faced torture and death hits theaters Friday.
The creator of The Stoning Soraya M. hopes the film will open the world's eyes to a brutal practice that is still taking place today.
Zahra is an Iranian woman who meets a French journalist and exposes a brutal tradition in her village. Her niece Soraya was stoned to death.
The gripping story is the focus of the feature film directed by Cyrus Nowrasteh.
"In modern-day Iran, the victim is accused of a crime. Usually it's adultery or sex-related crime, for which stoning is the punishment," he explained. "And it is usually women who are the victim."
In this film the victim is Soraya.
Her husband, Ali, wants to dump her and marry a 14-year-old. He then falsely accuses Soraya of cheating. The punishment is being buried waist deep while the men in the village throw stones at her.
And this is a true story based on an international best-seller first published in 1994.
Zahra is the brave woman standing up to the men.
She's portrayed by Shoreh Aghdashloo -- who actually left Iran 30 years ago, shortly before the islamic revolution.
Turning the light on a dark injustice is what moved big name stars like Jim Caviezel to be a part of the independent film.
Some reports suggest 1,000 women have been stoned in the last 15 years in a number of countries including Iran, Nigeria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan."
