Keeping the Faith

One of the main problems faced by relationships everywhere is that of unfaithfulness, perceived or otherwise. I believe that it is an obstacle present in every relationship, and no one is spared from the wiles of our fickle heart. We often put ourselves in the agony of being hurt by a party we deem of as unfaithful, or bear the enormous weight of conscience's struggle with the many what-ifs that are presented before us.
It is a problem that should never be tackled alone.
<blockquote>Two are better than one,
Because they have a good reward for their labor.
For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls,
For he has no one to help him up.
Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm;
But how can one be warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.
And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiates 4:9-12</blockquote>
It is something that every human heart is susceptible to. Our hearts, designed the way they are, are often swept up by the emotions of the moment, caught up in the raptures of ecstasy, sometimes choosing it over the stable, less volatile nature of matured love. Acknowledge that you too could be unfaithful, and it will be easier to see why your partner chose the way they did.
I'm not condoning moral flippance, but neither do I think that self-righteousness is any better. The threat of unfaithfulness in a relationship is a stepping stone by which a couple can draw closer to each other, and to God, who loves us despite our own weaknesses. Understand him, so that he will tell you the inner-workings of his heart. Love her, so she well trust you with all of hers.
