Adultery often causes lasting damage that no amount of repentance can undo. It is extremely hurtful to the spouse.
It often leads to divorce and leaves the marriage partners embittered and disillusioned. It robs and deprive the children of the love and security of a healthy family and denies them a good role model for their own future marriages.
Children born out of families with conflict or divorce are more prone to anxiety, poor school performance, drug abuse and disturbing behavior.
These problems can persist into adulthood. Adult children of divorced parents tend to have lower educational attainment, lower income, more children out of wedlock, higher rates of divorce themselves, and a lower sense of well-being.
