The Two D’s

When a person engages in an extramarital affair, it is inevitably accompanied by deception and deservedness (an attitude of entitlement). For healing to move forward, these two ingredients need to be removed as thoroughly as possible. This episode will explore the nature of deception and deservedness so you can learn if trust can be rebuilt.

Something to Think about

In this episode, we acknowledged that:

  • As difficult as it is to come to terms with the act of adultery, secrecy and deception can be and even more troublesome quality to accept.
  • When an offending spouse responds to the problem with an in-charge or demanding nature, it illustrates a lack of true contrition.
  • The offending partner will need to maintain patience, perhaps for an extended time, as efforts are made to get a broken marriage back on track.
