I wonder how many would stay with a man after the affair was with another man and not a woman?
I can't see how one would be worse than the other.

Now, RR... "we" make a lot of assumptions on this board ...... those who know her... (not me, I just know some who know her)... say she is a lovely and Godly woman...

All I know is our household could operate for several years on $138K, never mind the $85K bonus awarded just before the scandal. A request such as this seems 'way off base to me . . .

And if, in fact, she is so, then she is in a world of pain, and disillusionment as well; both for a huge personal betrayal, and for being a party to such a hypocritical and greedy ministry.

How do you compare this with Jim Baker and his ministry of old.

I have stayed in a marriage after an affair (several affairs, to be precise) because of concerns about the kids and finances. And if it had been with another man, I'd have still stayed. I am divorcing now. The kids are gone, finances have stabilized, and we both knew it was coming for a long time.

With all due respect, though(seriously), I think you'd have a hard time weighing in objectively on this one .... I think I know you well enough already to say you're tougher and less vulnerable than many (if not most) women would be in this situation. I'm not talking about being "hardhearted", but about being "resilient".
