On false hope and being strung along

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.

-Proverbs 13:12, NLT

Cheaters are known to string their partners along preying on their willingness to see hope in a miracle marriage restoration where none exists.

Like this Proverb says, such deferred hope makes the hearts of faithful spouses sick.

This website exists to help faithful spouses step away from the poison pills known as “false hope.” While blunt truth is rarely fun, it is the necessary cure to breaking free from the sickening cycle of hope and hope deferred… indefinitely.

Just because he treats you today like a friendly grocery attendant does not mean he has given up sleeping with the Other Woman and has decided to repent.

Just because she speaks to you civilly today does not mean she has stop messing around with Other Man like a hormone crazed teenager.

Just because he followed through on picking up the kids on time and dropping them off on time does not mean he is NOW ready to behave like an adult and repent of his sinful ways.

You get the idea.

Do not get ahead of yourself in hoping when their actions are telling you that they only have contempt for you and God!
