In my book, I have included a chapter on chasity, which is another word for purity in the marital relationship. There are many ways to tell if you or your spouse are loosing grip on purity in your marriage, which if left unchecked will ultimately lead to infidelity and probably divorce. I list 27 different warning signs to look out for to determine if you or your spouse are beginning to let down your guard. I will be focusing on these warning signs in future blogs so you can do a gut check to determine how you are doing.
I believe that heart and mind purity is something that everyone should strive for in marriage. While I understand that it is impossible to be perfectly pure, we can certainly do a lot to help ourselves and our marriages in this area. It is not okay to open ourselves up to all kinds of temptations to stray away from the love of one's spouse. Keeping ourselves loyal to our spouse in marriage takes a determined plan and consistent work over a lifetime. It is a battle many are losing, but it is a winnable battle.
As a Christian, I know that we can do all things through Christ who gives us the strength. The Lord will help us, but we must want his help and allow him to do it.
