It looks like you both decided that you would work things out. The choice of forgiving your mate and continuing the marriage comes with the responsibility of working hard to rebuild your marital bond. Ephesians 4:32 says “But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate, freely forgiving one another just as God also by Christ freely forgave you.”
The decision to work on once marriage is viewed in a positive way by God since the Bible does not treat divorce casually. It states that God views as treacherous and hateful the frivolous putting away of one’s mate, perhaps with the motive of taking another spouse. Matthew 19:6 says “So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has yoked together, let no man put apart.”
The Bible only allows for a married person to terminate his or her marital union on the grounds of a mate’s sexual immorality (Matthew 19:9). This means that after an act of infidelity, the innocent mate has the right to decide whether to remain with the unfaithful mate or to pursue a divorce. This is a personal decision (Galatians 6:5 “For each one will carry his own load”).
However, before making a hasty decision to end the marriage, contemplate. Divorce does not always end life’s anxieties. On the contrary, often it merely exchanges one set of problems for another. Important issues you need to think about before deciding on divorce are how this might affect finances, parenting (it might mean custody issues and single parenting), the effect of divorce on you, and the effect of divorce on the children.
