WHAT IS THE YOUNG WIFE’S SOLUTION TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND ADULTERY?

TRUTH OVER LIES DAILY

Q: What advice would you give a young wife who is the victim of domestic violence and whose husband does not work and has committed adultery more than once?

A: Here’s what I would say to that wife:

1. Fast and Pray regularly, at least weekly for 24 hours. God is the only one that can move on your husband’s heart and change him (Proverbs 21:1).

2. Forgive your husband for all his wrongdoing and adultery, and don’t retaliate (Romans 12:17). Vengeance is God’s. If you don’t forgive your husband for his sins, God cannot forgive you for your sins. (Mark 11:26)

3. Call the police when your husband is violent. Keep yourself safe from harm. If he won’t stop being violent, you can separate from him until he behaves in a safe manner. (1 Corinthians 7:15) This does not give you the right to commit adultery (divorce & remarriage), but just to separate and have peace.

4. Be obedient and respectful to your husband and follow his leadership even if he makes mistakes. Let him make the mistakes that he needs to make while he learns and grows in his responsibility (Titus 2:5). The only thing you can’t obey him in is if He tells you to break God’s laws.

5. Give up control and relax. When you are obedient to God and also to your husband, you no longer have to be afraid. The responsibility is no longer yours, everything is now on God and your husband. God will reward you for being obedient.

1 Peter 3:1 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
