I have personally have been through a marriage that was nothing but a lie. I was married to a man who served in the United States Navy. I took my vows very seriously. I was not marries in the house of God but, marriage to me was and still is a very sacred relationship between a women and a man. I was married for a little over nine years to a man who was committing adultery for the whole entire marriage. I tried counseling to save the marriage but it did not save the marriage. He was not ready to put an end to cheating. It was an evil poison to our marriage. The adultery destroyed my self esteem. I became extremely depressed. It took away the confidence I had in trusting people in general. It made me angry and my kids became affected by the whole thing. It has taken me through some emotional rides that I had to surpass and overcome. I always look to God for my strength to heal and continue on.
