“You shall not commit adultery.” These words of the seventh commandment seem clear, but Sironi expands our view to see that they are far more than a simple prohibition. Obeying this commandment requires more than abstaining from extramarital sex. It involves the commitment of body and soul to sexual chastity, a faithful heart committed to loving care, and a willingness to cultivate contentment in the spouse God has given you. This is a must-read for those who do marriage counseling.
