Q&A: How Can I Love and Forgive My Spouse Who is Fighting Continual Sin?

How can a wife love and forgive her husband while he is fighting continual sin? In our case, it's emotional adultery. How do I respond in love while I am hurting? There's sin on both sides - in him and in my heart, too. This feels like a taboo topic considering that my husband has not physically acted on these desires or thoughts, but I believe that sexual purity is not just physical but emotional too. Do our thoughts matter?

Do you desire to love and forgive your spouse, even in the midst of pain and struggles? Juli shares practically what it looks like to love and forgive someone who has deeply hurt us.
