After a Coptic couple is married and the Holy Spirit unites them into one, what happens spiritually if adultery is committed? Is this bond broken instantly or only after divorce?
I found out my dad is cheating on my mom, so I told her. My father blamed me for being a home-wrecker and trying to start problems. The issue was eventually resolved between them, but once again, a year down the line, I found out that he is still cheating on her. I didn't want to get involved because I'm not sure what the right thing to do is in this situation, but I did eventually tell my mom, and she stopped talking to him. Then, she spoke to a priest who advised her to speak to him and to come together. I know my dad will not stop his ways so should I keep fishing for information or just let it go? What should I do if I find out again?
Your Grace need to address the deadly issue of adultery because it is affecting many families, and therefore silence must be broken. Homosexuality and sex outside marriage is rampant these days. I firmly believe in marriage covenant and I am committed to it being obedient and submissive to my husband. However, I have discovered that while I am at work, my husband uses chat lines to practice sex with men, married women and young girls. He does that day and night. He thinks he is not doing wrong. But he was raised as a Christian and therefore knows what is right and what is wrong; not to mention he has a STD, that is why I am worried about his soul and that he will go to hell if he continues like that. I have often quoted to him the verse in Proverbs, "
whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding; He who does so destroys his own soul. Wounds and dishonor he will get, and his reproach will not be wiped away
" (Proverbs 6:32-33). I love him dearly and am ready to forgive him in spite of the hurt he has done me and the deadly harm he is doing to his soul. If God commands me to leave him I will be ready to do so with love in my heart for his own benefit.
