Adultery is one of the sins mentioned in 10 commandments. God takes it seriously and here is why.
Here is what the Bible tells us:
“Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.” (1 Corinthians 6:18)
When we lie, the words come out of us. The same is true with other things, but when we have sex outside the marriage, we sin within our bodies. If you are a Christian, your body is the temple of God. Ponder this truth for some minutes.
And, of course, adultery ruins the relationship. It makes husbands wonder if they are the real fathers of their kids. It makes wives cry long nights suspecting their men were with other women. It breaks the hearts of kids!
These 7 facts on adultery are surprising and even shocking:
What’s the high cheating season?
Researchers tell us that most adultery is committed during the summer in June, July, and August. Mostly men get involved in quick relations, and they use these women for sex. For them, it’s nothing serious. In the summer people become more lighthearted. They get vacations and relax. They sort of shed all the obligations, including the marital ones!
When does woman cheat?
Ovulation is the high time for ladies when they feel more prone to cheating. This is the time when a woman can conceive the child. She feels the inflow of energy in all her body cells. She is in a good mood and wants more intimacy. That’s why so many adulteries end up in unwanted pregnancies.
Who cheats more often?
Well, the risk group includes folks with depression, those with divorces in their family history and those who love fun and excitement.
Mostly unhappy women cheat!
Male adultery is more related to their physical needs in intimacy. When women cheat, they are moved to adultery by their emotions. Most of these ladies are unhappy in marriage. They have a lack of attention from their husbands; they do not trust or respect their men and look for ways to sooth their pain. So, if you wish to be sure your wife stays loyal, make her happy!
Men cheat because they can!
Once a male sees an opportunity to do it, he goes with it. He thinks he just got lucky and did not know what he does to his marriage, soul or body!
Will they cheat again?
Can you know that for sure? Well, their response at being caught determines the future. If the person realizes what they have done and truly repent, they lessen the chances of it happening again. If there is no remorse, most likely they would keep on doing it.
You can prevent adultery!
Is it possible? Yes! If you make your marriage your top priority, you can do it. Marriage is an investment. It requires our time, attention, efforts. If you invest yourself in your partner on all levels: body, soul, mind, spirit, you have high chances of them being loyal to you!
Adultery cannot be blamed just on one person. If that happens in your marriage, examine your life and try to fix what you have done wrong.
