1 Corinthians 7:10-15

Peter: "Yes, she can take that, though I am not sure those comments were meant for domestic problems, but you may well be right."

For ANY problem. The bible soes not say any specidic trespass.

By the way, it's Matthew 15-18.

Steveng on 6/8/14: So you would take it that the husband is sinning against the wife, and the wife should take the method given in Matt 18 (or Luke 17).

Yes, she can take that, though I am not sure those comments were meant for domestic problems, but you may well be right.
---Peter on 6/8/14

Do what the bible says to do.

First, confront your husband personally. Ask if he is willing to quite and that you love him so much that you will encourage him daily with loving words. Proverbs 15:1, 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Ephesians 4:29-32. Tell him the pros and cons about his habit and that you know he can overcome it through pesonal encouragement and prayer. James 1:5, Colossians 3:13, 2 Cor 5:7-8 Allow him to talk about his habit.

If he does not listen take two others along as witnesses. If he still doesn't listen, take the issue to the church. Read Matthew 18:5-18

Many people will mislead you in the wrong direction. Do it God's way.

Remember: love conquers all.

Elena I have only now seen your reply to Mrs. Washington dated 5/31/14. All you say is horrendous. Through a charity I work with I have come across many (mainly men) like this one and your late husband. Other humans cannot help them when they are not prepared to help themselves and we have to hand them over to God in prayer. Very few make it and die young in appalling circumstances. I'm so pleased you are free of this now and Mrs. W. must free herself from it also if she is not to lose everything (which could include her life).

It's so wonderful to see you here and hear about just how far you have come. All glory be to God.

MrsWashington on 5/21/14: I will say a few things, without knowing your husband at all, so what I say may be silly.

The first things is to see whether your husband is willing to work to get out of this. If he is, you can push him (but you must push him HARD) to work on it. But he must be willing to fight it.

You must also be willing (I am not sure if this is something that you, as a wife, must accept) to accept a good amount of 'damage'. Any vice causes damage.

How much damage are you willing to take?

Chocolate in large quantities can be toxic to human beings.

That's why it shouldn't be given to small mammals, such as cats and dogs.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Cluny: "Rx meds are NOT the same thing as recreational drugs."

Drugs are drugs. The drug doesn't know whether its Rx or illegal. All drugs are poisons, some of which have occasional beneficial side effects. More people die from Rx drugs than from the illicit variety.

Hello,from experience,let me say it
" get out,far away as you can!" IF HE CONTINUES,IT could be your life,on the line.I lived it.They believe their own lies,crackheads are the smart ones,come to cover up until it gets out of control.He will hurt you,physically,emotionally,intentionally.Leave now! My husband got to.the point he beat me,raped me,tried to make me sell my body! I beat him,up. police locked me,up.It was only yrs.later,they believe me.
Now! He is dead. God gave me poetic justice.
He does not care eventually even.for himself. Drugs are bad.
Love of Jesus!

Rx meds are NOT the same thing as recreational drugs, though even the wrong mixture of the first can bring problems.

And Xanax can be mean stuff, from what I've heard.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 5/30/14

I had a daughter who was taking prescription pain meds and Xanax. It is so hard to be around with family who have close ones on drugs. It just seemed she couldn't beat it then she got brain cancer. Her life was a tradegy and God delivered her out of her misery. I sure miss her and love her so much.

Have you ever live with an adddict? Ms washington...skip the ultimatum ... seperate...and do what Cluny suggested.
---aka on 5/24/14

I recommend you conduct an intervention and make the demand that he goes into rehab or you'll hit the road. It may be that he has to lose you before he sees the error of his ways. Also, pray, pray, pray, and then pray some more!!! Our God is a miracle worker.
---trey on 5/22/14

Forgive me for saying this, but the same mistakes of the first marriage are often repeated in the second.

I would suggest you go to Co-Dependents Anonymous (CODA) or NarcAnon (for families of addicts) and learn how to stop your own self-destructive and enabling behaviors that have TWICE led you into bad marriages.

Christ is risen!
