This interesting question came to me following a conversation during my weekly Bible study at church. As we discussed the topic of how evil thoughts can control and consume some individuals, one of the participants mentioned that their spouse knows how to assist them in fighting the urges and actions that surface surrounding infidelity. This person’s spouse apparently knows the words and actions to take in order to rein them back in if they appear to be getting too close to someone of the opposite sex. This, we are told, helps to prevent relationships from taking a wrong turn. They went on further to explain a spouse’s job is to protect the other spouse from traveling a road that leads to cheating, because one spouse can’t do it by themselves.
My first thought was if a spouse really could protect the other from becoming an adulterer and then my last thought was should they? Should I be responsible for consistently keeping tabs on my husband, warning him when he maybe getting too close to another woman and watching over him ensuring he does not have an affair? Whew, that wore me out just typing it. With all my other life responsibilities I cannot and will not add making sure my husband doesn’t cheat on me to that list.
