Can a person be repentant while still in a full on affair? My husband claims that while he was in his 2 year affair that he was repentant the entire time. This doesn’t make sense to me at all since repentance is about a change of heart which results in a change of behavior. During the affair he didn’t tell anyone or get any help-so how could he make such claims? Deceived still?
