Show Notes Chapter Markers

It's hardly ever simple.  People who cheat on their spouses are usually good, decent and normal folks who have greatly lost their way.

Most people who have an extra-marital affair say later "I never thought this would happen to me."  And hardly no one can anticipates the painful journey of working through this depth of betrayal.  Fred and Terry Reed, both part of the Seacoast Family, walked this road after Fred was unfaithful for 25 years.

In the course of telling their story, Fred shares how he justified his multiple affairs for so long, he describes the relational power shift once he was caught and tells why complete devastation was the only path that could have led to his healing.  He also marvels at the grace he received from God and Terry.

Terry explains how she coped with an unhappy marriage for so long and shares whether she accepts any blame in the affair.  She describes how "trusting God" was the only way she could hang on long enough to see if "blue skies" with Fred was ever possible again. 

They are now happily married and now use their experiences to help other struggling couples.  Both found much of their healing through the love, support and guidance from their church family.
