The Bible makes it quite clear that marital vows should be taken very seriously. “I do” is a pledge made to God as well as to your spouse. Unfortunately, we live in a world where those vows are frequently broken. That’s why we applauded this married woman’s answer to a man’s utterly inappropriate approaches!
On the social networking site Imgur, a lady known only as littlesb79 knows what true love looks like. She’s married to a wonderful man who has been there for her through thick and thin. So she didn’t think much of it when a new “friend” started talking her up.
During the election, the two had engaged in some political banter on Facebook. The woman never expected anything out of the ordinary because her Facebook status was plainly set to married. Their exchanges had always been short and to the point.
Until one day, he crossed the boundary entirely and thoroughly.
The man texted her and suggested they go out. The married woman respectfully declined him, pointing out that she has a spouse. Clearly, it was supposed to be the end of it. However, this individual misunderstood the message.
“Are you married? Okay, I’m the same way, but we’re not going to tell. It’ll be enjoyable “He responded.
Doesn’t it make your blood boil a little? You’re not alone, to be sure.
The “in sickness and in health” section of this married woman’s vows had already been fulfilled. Her spouse had demonstrated his devotion to her and their marriage in several ways. So this man’s blatant disdain for marriage’s sanctity set her on fire. And she wasn’t going to put up with it!
Who knows what this man was anticipating from the married woman’s reaction. But it wasn’t likely this:
“When I got diagnosed with cancer last year I didn’t have the heart to tell my boys (whom I have always protected) that I could die. My husband had to look in their eyes and say that I was sick. He subsequently took care of me during multiple surgeries, emptying drainage bags, giving me blood thinner shots, holding my hand while [I] was in pain and going to get chemo infusions. During this time there was a song lyric that would constantly loop in my head: ‘Love is watching someone die.’ So my question to you is… who is going to watch you die? Get your house in order and please stop messaging me.”
When he read her response, I’m inclined to guess the man’s face looked something like this:
This woman deserves praise for demonstrating what marriage should be like to this cheater. We sincerely hope that her words strike a chord with him and prompt him to reconsider his motivations.
