An Interesting Case of Infidelity

  • February 18th, 2010 by Pastor Darryl Curtis   |  1 Comment

            If you have any questions, comments or criticisms on this or any other topic, please feel free to let me know. It is easier for me to pick topics if I have your feedback. Thanks again for reading. I hope that you find a blessing here, and may the Lord be with you.

            In a counseling journal, I read the interesting case of a woman who obtained evidence that her husband was having an affair with a co-worker. The woman confronted her husband, who was contrite and promised to immediately cease the affair and break off with the other woman. The couple went into marital counseling, discussed the situation thoroughly, and at the end of the counseling, the man promised to be faithful to his wife.

            Six months went by, and the woman began to be suspicious of her husband. It was not for any reason that she could objectively state; her husband went to work on time every morning, came home on time every night, and never went out without his wife, a trusted friend, or to an event for which the wife was given the time parameters. The husband appeared to always be where he was supposed to be, and the wife could never catch her husband anywhere that he was not supposed to be. But, she was still suspicious, for some intuitive reason.

            The uncomfortable wife decided to bug her husband’s SUV. She put a sound activated tape recorder under his driver’s seat before he went to work the next day. When she listened to the tape, she heard her husband apparently having sex with someone, in the SUV, for about fifteen minutes. She didn’t say anything to her husband, but put the tape recorder back in his vehicle. The next day, she listened to the tape, and heard the same activity that she had heard the previous day. Just to be sure, she put the tape recorder back in his vehicle for a third day, with the same results.

            The wife confronted her husband with the audio evidence. He confessed that he had only stopped having sex with his lover for a short time when he was first found out, and that he and she had been having sex before work  for fifteen minutes every workday morning for about nine years. His lover was a married woman, and neither he nor she wanted to leave their marriages and children, but they both enjoyed the intimate time and pleasure that they had with one another.

            Needless to say, the woman was shocked, asked her husband to leave their home, and filed for divorce.

            The first question for you is: How would their marriage have been different if the man’s wife made love to him for fifteen minutes every morning before he went to work?

            The second question for you is: Do you have fifteen minutes to spare for your mate?

1Corinthians 7:4-5
4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.
5 Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
