My wife has cheated on me many times and I have taken her back but she feels she is not in love with me anymore and has no right to be with me because of all she has done. Do I let her go?

The choice is yours: Please Read- I Corinthians 7:10-16.

That's your decision. According to the Bible, you have valid reason for divorce - and that's adultery. If she's not a Christian, you have another valid Biblical reason since she feels she has no right to stay. It might be advisble to get marriage counseling from a Certified, Christian, Marriage Counselor. There may be a root problem you aren't sharing.

It sounds like she may have an addiction to sex, love, or both. You have to ask yourself if she is truly willing to address these sereous issues? I wish you luck

The bible says that a person (you) can get a divorce if your spouse is unfaithful.

The other reason the bible says you can get a divorce is if your spouse is an unbeliever, the unbeliever can get the divorce if he or she wants to leave. But the saved one is not the one to get the divorce in that situation.

Are you both Christians? You can let her go based on the fact she has probably committed adultery. If she's a non-Christian, you can let her go at her request based on 1 Corinthains. However, assure her she can stay with you if she wants too. You can divorce her for adultry if you so choose, but if she's a non-Christian and wants to stay, and you are a Christian you must let her stay, except for adultry.

Jason, Tough one here. Is your wife a believer? If so, her being "in love" with you is biblically irrelevant as far as her actions - she is bound. However, her infidelity allows you to divorce.

My suggestion is, if you haven't already, get biblical couples counseling. If it ends up she is determined to leave the marriage, then be released.

Keep us posted so we can be praying for you and the children.

Well, she is not free to do what she pleases. If she does not love you, this is because of the degradation of her cheating > betraying is anti-love, so she can not be loving anyone, really, while betraying you and your children. Saying she does not deserve you does not excuse her from all she needs. I don't think God considers her free to go.

Cynthia, will you be moving to Vegas,too?
You all should have a reunion when you arrive there.
---Lynda on 2/7/08

Well, I could quote the entire Bible to you but I won't because I do not know it all. The answer that I will give you is this YES,YES,YES, LET HER GO,GO,GO.

Blessings Jason, I am going through the same situation right now, and I let my husband go. It is a tough decision but a learning experience as well, especially when there are children involved. I do understand what you are going through. I hope everything works out for you. Seek guidance from God, for He will never leave you nor forsake you. God bless Jason!
---Cynthia on 2/7/08

Thanks all who posted. If she wont choose then I have have to choose for her and will separate myself from the situation. Too bad our children have to go through this.
---Jason on 2/5/08

Wow, looks like you're in a tough spot.
I think she'll probably end up running off and you won't have to worry about your decision. It will be made for you, I hope you are prepared. Don't be too hard on yourself, you tangled with the wrong tiger.
---Kimberly on 2/5/08

If this is your desire, you are certainly within right to do so, but that's really only a question you yourself can answer. You know the details of your marriage. What do you think?
---kady on 2/5/08

hey man,some tough situation you got there.but if you love her,and she WANTS to go,then let her go.won't do you any good to cling if she's already made up her mind.and if she's really sorry,she can't keep doing deserve better.
---namya3893 on 2/5/08

I have had the same question/problem. Yep, let her go man! Be glad it's over! Move on. Another 'bus' will pass by. I found this out and glad I did! You just can't see through all of the fog right now--but you will some day!

You might as well let her go since she left you a long time ago anyway.
---Susie on 2/4/08

she feels she has no right to be with me because of all she has done.

Jason Buddy, get a backhoe to bury that one if you have to see it's NEVER mentioned again unless by her searching.
Then deal with it from within to the point that you'd have her even at the worst of times.

If she's doing this to please God please help her understand what her marriage means to God- as a searcher of this knowledge she'll keep herself pure and you'll be the only man in the world. Banish your fear.
