As helpers, how can we provide guidance for constructive communication between spouses after sexual sin has occurred? Groves offers an answer by drawing on wisdom from Ephesians 4:29. He outlines a framework for confession that prioritizes what is best for the spouse who was sinned against over what is comfortable for the offender. How unusual this is in our culture! Such an act of selfless love, grace, and honor can be sustained only by dependence on God’s forgiveness and support of the offending spouse.
