    Did he really have to confess after 15 years??
    Probably.

    The insidious cancer of the cheating had finally eaten away enough of his resolve to continue the lie, I'm guessing. Good for him, in that sense. Should have come clean at the outset, or avoided the affair altogether, but what's done is done.

    IMO, confession is always the best option, if one foot has already gone down the ugly path. She needn't have attempted murder. Had he suspected that, perhaps he should have left her, then put it in a memo. Might have been safer, that way.

    But, for me the breach of trust is one of the things that is absolutely verboten. Tough to repair, once done.

    Taught the wife to shoot. Best thing in the world for our marriage.

    Actually, I was raised to value the marriage covenant. But on top of that, Scripture speaks pretty clearly on this one and I don't want to mess with God OR my wife. It would be rough to wind up in judgement early, and the more so if I would have to stand in front of a righteously angry Judge. [Can't figure out how to do a decent play on words with the gun make at this hour - apologies.]

    That's one way to get rid of a wife without alimony I guess.

    While I would never cheat to begin with, it doesn't hurt that my wife has to qualify with the M16 regularly and likes shooting the 870 that sits in our safe. I have no doubt that my shelf life would be short indeed if I ever strayed!

    I wonder if we should revise the marriage vows to "Til death us do part. AND if I cheat on her...death is a given".

    Same here, and my Wife would hit all shots not just 2. Or worse yet, I'd never see it coming since she is a sneaky red head.

    That woman just wasn't using her brain. Why kill him when she can "book" him on a "guilt trip"on a regular basis for the rest of his life. After a few years...he would be BEGGING for death.

    Men...sometimes NOT confessing is the best option. I guess he was having trouble living with it and it almost killed him.
    I have a different take on it.

    First of all, I think that confession is good for one's mental health when otherwise one would be carrying around a burden of secret guilt and fear of discovery.

    Second, I respect a man that is able to admit his mistakes and ask for forgiveness. Admitting your mistake is the first step toward correcting it.

    Third, choose your mate wisely. He married someone that he had trouble remaining faithful to, someone of questionable mental stability given her latest actions.

    Something makes me think that this wasn't a "Honey I'm sorry I cheated on you...." type of confession....It was probably more like..."Yea, I slept with her & I'd do it again given the chance...."
