it's not a sin for you to sleep with your husband. He is the one committing the sin. If you continue to sleep with him you should make him wear a condom. Why should you have to take the risk of catching HIV or a STD.

Why would you won't to sleep with a husband that broke his marraige vows.many innocent men and womem get aid's from there mates and die because there partners couldn't control them self's If he does it once he will do it again

It may not be sin be it could be very nasty in the area of STD's and that is risky. No one can tell you by scripture because it is not supported that you do this this is something you are caught up in.

I would not be sleeping with my husband if there was another woman involved, been there and wore the T-shirt at 26,before I was unmarried but the reality of his unfaithfulness and the chance that he could be sleeping with someone else made me walk out of sin straight into church two children and no daddy.

No man, no emotional heart ache,no hurt, and a salvation I wouldn't exchange for the whole wide world.

faithful . . . to Jesus . . . by having compassion for people who are wrong . . . and forgiveness ready > "'And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.'" (Mark 11:25) "He can have compassion on those who are ignorant and going astray, since he himself is also subject to weakness." (Hebrews 5:2) "Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted." (Galatians 6:1)

You would not see my feet for dust. I don't think I could go back to a man after he had had an affair. Forgive, yes. Go back, no. It is the ultimate betrayal.

It's not a "sin" for you to sleep with your husband knowing he is having an affair. It does show you are not thinking to clearly. As far as he is concerned, he's "getting his cake and icing too." Have you ever confronted him about this affair? Do you know for a fact he's having an affair? You should stop sleeping with him until he is willing to get marriage counseling and continue your stopage until AFTER the Marriage Counseling is completed, and he stops his affair. Be prepared though, he may elect to leave you for another. By the way, make sure the marriage counseling is from a qualified, Christian marriage counselor.

I take it that you are christian and your husband isn't. If he says he is, then he deceives himself because the bible is adamant in denouncing adultery as evil. Jesus came not to destroy the law but to fulfill the law. Thou shalt not commit adultery is still a commandment that needs to be obeyed, regardless if the pope says it isn't. Others said it perfectly. Do you really want to take a chance of obtaining STD's from his infidelity. That is a question only you can answer. Any husband that says he loves his wife and then sleeps with another is lying to himself and love does not exist within him.

Why would you want to? Show him you have self-respect for yourself and demand that he end the affair or leave. That's ridiculous that you would be willing to be second choice to your husband - why condone what he's doing and rewarding him at the same time? I wouldn't if I were you. He is in MAJOR sin.

The bible says that in marriage the "bed is undefiled". There is no indication that it would ever be a sin to lay with your husband. I would not take his infidelity lightly however. The issue needs to be dealt with. God Bless!

You could tell us what's really going on. For all I know, he knows you know and you have gone to a pastor and he told you it would be a sin to continue sleeping with him if he refuses to stop the affair. And so, for all I know, you are coming here in order to get a scripture to disprove your pastor's counsel, maybe because you do not want to risk having your husband rebel and choose her over you. Would it be a sin for you to sleep with him, in such a case? Fearing what your husband might do would be a sin, because you would be allowing evil to decide what you do. But should you cut him off? You're his wife. I'd say you have the best chance of knowing what to do with him. We love you, we are praying for you.

There is no scripture to support that it is a sin to sleep with your husband for this reason. But I do hope you are doing something about his unfaithfulness. He may very well bring physical as well as spiritual disease into your relationship. I hope all goes well with you.

You are not the one sinning, it is your husband. Does he know you know. He has no right to do this to you.
---a_friend on 1/25/09


as far as i know if you continue to live with him denying yourself too him is not a matter of your choice ,unless he agrees.you have not sinned he has.I assume you are trying too save your marriage?then i suggest you find out if he does.then go from there.my first wife got herself a boyfriend, while I was working 2 jobs,she didn,t want to give he up,so i left.and she was a profesing christian.
