    There was a comment re: being pushed to have an affair. That appears to be a justification for something that can never be justified and sounded as if almost sought to minimize the sole personal responsibility of the person who chose to violate the sanctity of the marriage. While spouses influence one another’s feelings of acceptance and satisfaction, no spouse pushes another to have an affair. While dissatisfaction may exist on both sides of a marriage, both always remain responsible to themselves, to their spouse and to God to maintain, and not destroy, the sanctity of their marriage. Marriage vows are a three party covenant. It is disastrous when one of the three parties in that covenant chooses to violate it – and adultery is never “a mistake” – but it is always a decision. No one mistakenly removes their clothes in the presence of someone who was not their spouse and engages in sex. That is a choice the person may (or may not) ultimately regret, but it is not a mistake..
