26 May UFI Reader Poll Results: “If your spouse committed adultery…
“If your spouse committed adultery, would you be willing to consider keeping the marriage intact?”
Here is the response:
73 Percent Yes, if my spouse was truly willing to change
16 Percent No, that’s it for me
11 Percent I’d stay married no matter what
We came to ask this question because of the high pro-file ending of the Shriver-Schwarzenegger marriage. We really had no idea how our readers would respond to the question. It appears that the vast majority of the readers are willing to give the marriage a chance.
We acknowledge the wisdom and the sacrifice of the wronged spouse who understands the critical importance of marriage and recognizes the great harm that is inflicted by divorce – and is willing to dig deep and give the marriage a second chance.
The number that said they’d stay “no matter what” was probably the most interesting response. We’d be interested to hear what the thought process is that leads to that decision. Anyone want to give input?
