My husband left me 6 weeks ago for a much younger woman. I turned it over to God, trying to walk in peace. My husband wanted to come home but still see this other woman. I said "no". I have not sought a divorce. Now my husband says he cares for her a lot and it will be hard for him (haha) but he loves me and never wants a divorce. I have started moving on without him.
I need to know if God wants me to embrace this wandering husband and be glorified in the restoration of my marriage? In order to serve God should I open my arms again to this man? I do believe God restores marriages, that it was never his plan for divorce in the first place. Though I have been freed by my husbands adultery, doesn't God ask that I forgive instead of divorcing? Isn't that what the Lord would ask of me?
I have confused myself greatly as all the answers I find in my Bible tell me to stand as a virtous woman and honor my husband. I am not responsible for what he has done, I am only responsible for my own actions.
Please prayerfully advise.
