Will SHE Look Like a Fool for Staying With Me? I’ll never forget when the leaders of the organization I worked for during my affair practically bribed Samantha to divorce me when it all came out. Some of these executives, if you will, were friends of mine for about 10 years who had been through all kinds of life experiences together, all to see them completely turn on me, my wife, and even my kids. They had helped dedicate and baptize my kids. They had been there with me at my greatest accomplishments. I had helped them in their greatest times and their worst times. Instead of rallying behind me, they ran away as fast as they could, considered me dead and even had personal funerals for our relationship. True story!Through a few sources I also heard they said my wife, Samantha, was “mentally off” for being willing to save our marriage and give me a second chance. Can you believe the complete audacity to mockingly label someone mentally ill for simply being willing to save their family unit, forgive an atrocity, and extend grace?Who is the mentally ill one now?True, Samantha, did in fact, have to consider the repercussions to attempting to save her marriage. Consider the gossip….consider the embarrassment just knowing your husband, in a high profile position, was cheating on her behind her back for two years. The shame of being looked upon in so many negative lights and labeled a bitter wife, a failure, this that and the other. The pain that came with looking at your family and knowing that all your closest friends for over 10 years had disappeared overnight. You can barely imagine the rumors and the outright slander that took place about me, but also, oddly and sickeningly enough, about Samantha.She took all of it and stared it in the face and said, and I quote, “I care more about how my family looks, than my reputation, and your reputation Samuel, and more than any of those *******************’s……. They’ve already shown their true colors.”Talk about no pride. Talk about a love for her kids more than a love for herself. Talk about a desire to be willing to be looked upon as mentally imbalanced all for the sake of seeing what can happen with a mere second chance.Who’s the mentally imbalanced one now?I’d say it was the ones who said their “marriage is over.”“They’ll never make it.”“She’s crazy for being willing to take him back.”It’s not a taunt but it is applause for a betrayed wife who was crazy enough, to give US, and Love, and Grace, and forgiveness, another chance.Thank you forever My Samantha.
