Q&A – Do I have to confess my adultery?

Q:       I am dealing with something and need some advice.  About a year ago I cheated on my wife.  I have never told her about it and the relationship I had with the other person is over.  Do I have to tell her about what I did?  I know that if she finds out she will want to divorce me.  I know that what I did was wrong, but I don’t want to get divorced.  Wouldn’t it be better if we just worked on the problems in our relationship and saved my marriage?

Peyton’s Tooth

Then when we were putting him to bed one night last week, we noticed it was just about ready and Suzanne asked him if he wanted us to pull it out. At first he was scared. Scared it would hurt and scared it would bleed. We told him not to worry, that it wouldn’t hurt and that if it bled, it would just be for a second.
