Not reading or someone isn't listening. Which is it?
Let's play a game. Would you kindly answer these questions?
1. Are you living your life honestly and with integrity?
2. Let's assume that there would be no negative consequences to any action you might choose to take.
What would you need to change, if anything, to bring your inner thoughts and outward actions into alignment?
3. As a father, you have a responsibility to support and help raise your children.
Who is the best role model for your child: (i) a man who faithfully, but passively, stays with his wife in a loveless marriage out of duty, (ii) a man who "wakes up" in a loveless marriage and takes action to force change (including the possible dissolution of the marriage), (iii) a man who cheats on his wife but stays in the marriage "for the children" or (iv) you supply the action.
What characteristics does the man in your choice above exhibit that you think make him the best role model?
What principles is he modeling for his children by his behavior?
