The Bible teaches that marriage is between one man and one woman, and that they should love and commit to one another for the rest of their lives. When a spouse betrays his wife, what steps should we take? Exactly how does the Bible speak to this issue? In the eyes of God, adultery is a terrible sin that must be avoided at all costs.
The English Standard Version (ESV) of the Bible states that a man who commits adultery against his wife is a fool who lacks all reason. The book of Proverbs warns against engaging in adultery in chapter six, verse 32: "He who commits adultery lacks sense; he who does it ruins himself." Being unfaithful to your partner is a reflection of a lack of discipline.
Moreover, God will judge sexually immoral and unfaithful people harshly, as it is written in Hebrews 13:14: "Let marriage be held in honour among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, because God will punish the sexually immoral and unfaithful." Despite the fact that human flesh is inherently frail, it's still important to do what you can to keep from cheating on your mate, which is something God views very negatively.
