Quoting Quiverfull: Wives Cause Affairs?

Quoting Quiverfull: Wives Cause Affairs? November 24, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Lori Alexander from Always Learning – Can Wives Contribute To Their Husbands Affairs?

Editor’s note: Lori goes into Biblical Gender Roles territory with this blaming bit of crap. No Lori, not having sex with your husband for any number of reasons legitimate or ridiculous, does not mean that the man is going to automatically cheat. Cheaters cheat because of something deficient in them, not their spouse in most cases. Who wants a man that weak and unable to control his animalistic nature? This type of thinking reduces men to beasts.

Women have told me {Lori} that married men should be able to have extended times of celibacy and be fine with no sex since godly single men like Paul lived without ever having sex and did not have affairs. There are so many things wrong with this statement including the fact that a Christian wife is NOT the one who should be determining the frequency of sex in the marriage. There is a BIG difference between a single, godly man who does not have to live just feet from an attractive woman that he is not to able to touch or have intimacy with and a married man. More so, a husband by marital contract and promised vows is living in anticipation of having regular sex, unlike a single man who has not been willing to be married to a wife and meet her needs. It takes an extra large dose of self-control for any married man who is being sexually deprived from his wife compared to a single man, especially when anger sets in over the unwarranted and often unkind situation.
