What are your deal breakers? Do you draw lines in the sand? Is there a point where you will say enough is enough? I believe most of us are fully committed to our marriage. We hold onto the words: “What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.” But I also know exceptions are made sometimes. Given the right circumstances, most of us can be pushed to the point where we draw our line in the sand.
My deal breaker was infidelity. I had seen so much of it growing up and I knew how much pain it caused. So, I became very afraid it. My fear even pushed me into a place of denial the first two times my marriage was in trouble. I was willing to accept my wife had had emotional affairs. But I couldn’t handle knowing she had been sexually intimate with someone else. When she confessed her first affair, I reacted so severely she immediately retracted it. And then, told me only as much as I was willing to accept.
