It would be easy for him to tell everyone of my transgressions. Especially since there are rumors all over town that he cheated on me with the girl that I found the messages from. He promises me that nothing happened between them other than the messages so I have to believe him. He has nothing to lose at this point, especially since I was honest with him and told him about me and the OM.
I told him that I would tell that I was the reason for our issues. That I would tell of my infidelities. He continues to tell me not to do that, that this is between him and me and it's nobody elses business. I think that is very Godly of him!! He doesn't have to protect me like that, but he is. I sent him a text to tell him thank you for not telling and that although he told me that he has fallen away from God, it is a very Christian thing for him to not tell of my wrong doings.
Agreed - protection of your wife = Godly characteristic!
Praise God for that blessing as well.
