“I always tell people to look at your spouse’s heart. See where the relationship with God is. I think when trust is broken, initially you are not going to trust that person, but you can trust God within that person. You can see that the person is being transformed.” - Dr. Kim
“The job for the spouse who has been offended though is to give them a chance. If you never take that risk again to trust them again at some point, you won’t ever have the marriage you want.” - Dr. Kim
“Begin to pray for your spouse to believe the truth about what you say and do. Continue to share how important it is to you. But know that until that trust is rebuilt your marriage is going to be limited.” - Dr. Kim
