Sexless But Faithful By Choice
While in a sexless marriage I choose to be faithful. It is a choice I have to make every day, and sometimes even moments of the day as well. I choose to be faithful for my children's sake. How do I teach them to be faithful to their future spouses if I choose to be unfaithful? My choices effect both them and the choices they make regarding both their future spouses, their future children, and their future lives. I am not here to judge anyone else, I am just here trying to work out my own sanity. So long as the safety and security of my children does not come into question, (i.e. they continue to come first), the choice to be unfaithful isn't even a consideration to me. So even though I am in a sexless marriage I choose to remain faithful.
I am trying not to be part of a support group for others who choose to remain faithful,(choosing to remain faithful is dependent upon the circumstances of situation. It entails if there is any abuse...etc...). However, if support occurs from sharing this experience pertaining to my free choice, I am glad I could be a part of it,(i.e. we need to continue to support one another no matter what choices we make).
