Mary Mary's Tina Campbell opens up about her husband's infidelity

If you've ever been cheated on by your spouse, then maybe you should read this. Tina Campbell, the other half of gospel group Mary Mary opened up to Ebony magazine June issue about infidelity in her marriage; how her husband of 13 years had an affair for two years; how she first wanted to harm him and divorce him, then learning to forgive and working things out.

Tina on discovering her husband was having an affair:
“Once I became aware [of the affair], I initially wanted to kill my husband…I was considering adjusting the will, the living trust and all that kind of stuff. I did physically try to stab him. Several times…I never got to the point of physical harm, not really, but my words…My words hurt. ” 
A few days after the online publication, Tina posted a message to her fans on her website asking for prayers. See it after the cut...



Hi fans and friends. It’s Tina. I hope all of you are well and I thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown my sister and I over the years.
Well, I'm actually writing you on behalf of my husband Teddy and I. I’m assuming that many of you have seen or heard about our article in Ebony that discussed the challenges of overcoming infidelity in our marriage. Well since the article, the challenges have worsened. My hope turned into hopelessness & despair and I became unwilling to forgive and fight, until God showed me myself.
My husband’s struggle, was with sexual immorality BUT I have struggled with anger, rage, unforgiveness, pride, just to name a few, for over 2 decades. The devil wanted to use strongholds that took hold of our lives in our childhood, to remain and destroy us as adults. So now instead of being mad at each other we’re mad at the devil and we’re ready to fight.
Today we began a 30 day fast (May 24th-June 22nd) for complete deliverance & restoration. If u are able to, please fast and/or pray daily that God would answer our prayers and give us a deeper love & commitment to him and to each other. We believe he still works miracles and he can give us the greatest marriage we could have ever imagined. We can pray alone BUT your prayers will certainly help.
Some Scriptures To Target Your Prayer
2 Chronicles 7:14
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
James 5:16
“Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”
Thanks in advance. Talk to you in 30 days.
Tina
Tina and Teddy got married in 2000 and have four children together.

This is the reason why men will always cheat, because women keep forgiving them.
I dated two women I considered marrying, one who would find out about my cheating and forgive me, and another who I knew would leave me if she ever found out, guess which one I married, of cos the forgiving one, so I'm eating my cake and having it

Men wil always cheat!always

God does miracle and relates with us his children in different ways. Has she considered if God wants her to move away from this man? Does she know this could be the message? I doubt fasting and praying would heal a throbbing penis.

It is only those who have been affected that know the true meaning of hurt relating to infidelity. I went through such once and forgave my husband; the second time I literally prayed that he died, because he felt entitled to cheat because we were going through stuff. It is well my sister, the Lord will heall your home. Anger is one emotion a Christian cannot afford: it blinds us &erodes all channels of communication. Don't give up on yourslves. GGod will lift you above yourself and heal your hearts & home IJN

This is terrible and lovely on the part the lady was reconciliation. Infidelity in marriage at times in hard to bid bye and forgive your partner especially if you have been so faithful with all the challenges. Is right to pray and fast about it and may God change things for better. Your hubby must be committed at heart not to get to those evil and bad ways and watch out for signals that transmit and translate to such wrong habit.

Thank God for his mercies. Marriage may seem challenging but God always sees us through. I have come to realise that once we see our marriage the way God sees marriage (valuable,precious and loved) then who are we to say our marriage is struglling or challenging when God says its valuable. Its high time we confess and speak Gods words over our marriage.

Cheating kills the heart. I was busy keeping myself intact for a boyfriend who we were planning marriage. months to the marriage i learnt he had been cheating on me. not with one two but three girls. some of them he told me about and i advised him and we even prayed about it yet he slept with at least two of them behind my back.my heart was broken. need i say more. cheating kills the spirit. I dont know what trust is again i tell you.

Its so painful when some1 you love and trust so much betrays u and sleeps with someone else.. I've had the same challenge in my marriage but by the grace of God we are working on it.. My husband is a wonderful, loving man.. I just feel the distance and not being together for over a year made him do things he wldnt think of ordinarily.. We are praying, fasting and working on our issues as a couple because the pain I feel in my heart can't be described...

When a man cheats, you count your loses, dump his silly ass n move on.everyone is entitled to a happy life, why be the one sitting home crying everyday while the man is eating his cake n having it. If u r in the developed world, take him to the cleaners. Once any partner cheats, the marriage is over. Wonder when women will ever learn.many women are better off single than being stuck in stupid marriages.

Please remember that this is a cheating husband, not a violent wife beater. If you will not divorce a wife beatr, you might as well just write your obituary. My friend is currently in hospital with a dislocated jaw. She is not talking to me because i notified her family about the torture she has been enduring for 8 months since their wedding, i may have lost a friend, but i defintitely saved a life. Be warned

These women sef, they go too far and take small issues so personal. After 10 years, you're not happy for him that he's still got his game on. So other women in other parts whose husbands choose to marry 4-5 women should go manic and pieces their husbands. You even go as far as Stigmatizing your husband with the Sexual Immorality tag. You without sin carry leg waka leave the man, naa. But you can't because his koko belongs to you and you'd rather cut it than let another woman have it, shey? Just tell us you need and excuse to loose weight because your competition is thinner... Who wan follow you starve 30 days? We follow chop Koko, 13 years?

Would God really suggest to her to leave her husband? Wouldn't you think that God will always act according to His word? Am I wrong to consider that since God instructs us to forgive one another that this should also count? I believe she's doing the right thing. The only caveat is the hope that the husband is truly repentant.

Marriage is a scared union.
God cannot 'want' her to move away from her husband.
Even as children of God, when we stubbornly refuse to adhere to His voice and marry His perfect will for us cos that's not what we want for ourself, He still grants us HIS permissive will.
HE MIGHT let us go thru a lil trial and all but wud always see us thru.
Please do not take GOD to be man!
