You want it white as snow but you got it as black as charcoals. How do you want it, how did you get it, don’t be disappointed love it the way you have it.

Never try to share your love or affection with another partner. Prov. 5:23
There is an adage that says SIN IS SWEET BUT IS DEADLY. There is a serious danger in going out of your marriage to gratify your desire, you may never come back. This does not mean you will remain with the person immediately, you can still be with your spouse but your affection and attention is already sever and divided. It a dangerous thing to have your soul scattered in your marriage. Some never come out of it. It is an automatic passion killer for your spouse.
The word of God in proverbs 5:23-27 encourages us to keep our heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
May you have a happy and successful home in Jesus name.
