For Integrity In My Husband
Why Integrity is Important in the Workplace
In his book The Millionaire Mind, Thomas J. Stanley asked 733 millionaires to rank 30 factors which led to their success.
The number one attribute, “being honest with all people,” tells volumes about the importance of integrity in the workplace: it is more than living out good moral principles – it is also critical for succeeding in the business world.
Corporate Integrity: It Starts at the Top
I used to be affiliated with a construction company whose owner ordered the workers to cut corners in every way possible without getting caught.
Some foremen were even chastised for taking extra care to do a good job. Did this philosophy work? No.
The company did make money, but the employees who took pride in their work went elsewhere, leaving a workforce who simply was not trustworthy and a company which had a shady reputation.When a new owner set a policy of always doing things right, the company slowly began to grow.
Those who continued to cut corners were dismissed and a new vitality began to emerge as the employees felt good about themselves; they began to love their jobs and became proud of who they worked for. Guess what? This company continues to flourish today. Coincidence? I think not.
Individual Integrity: We Are All Accountable
Writer and speaker Nicky Gumble punctuates this truth in the following story:
A man named Gibbo used to work as a clerk for Selfridges. One day the phone rang and Gibbo answered. The caller asked to speak to Gordon Selfridge, who happened to be in the room at the time. When Mr.
Selfridge instructed Gibbo to tell the caller that he was out, Gibbo handed him the phone and said, ‘You tell him you’re out!’ Gordon Selfridge was absolutely furious, but Gibbo said to him, ‘Look, if I can lie for you, I can lie to you. And I never will.
’ That moment transformed Gibbo’s career at Selfridges – he became the owner’s most trusted employee.
Integrity, for Gibbo, was so deeply ingrained that he disobeyed his boss without hesitation. Yes, he might have been fired, but I am guessing that Gibbo wouldn’t have wanted to continue working there anyway. In this case, however, his integrity was instrumental to his ascent at Selfridges.
Why Integrity Works
It is no surprise that employees with integrity shine.
They do not undermine their fellow workers, they work just as hard whether they are being watched or not, they can always be counted on to do their best, and they will be honest enough to admit it if they have made mistakes. They won’t pass the blame, but they will share the credit. They are an inspiration to others, creating a positive and upbeat work environment.
If you were in charge of hiring and networking, wouldn’t you dig beneath the surface of a potential employee’s resume to learn of their integrity? Of course you would. Therefore, if you are that employee, your services will be coveted, both when you are hired and for years thereafter.
How Are You Doing?
- Do you leave work early when there is no possibility anyone else will find out?
- Do you accept full responsibility (or your share) when things don’t go well?
- Do you share the credit when things go right?
- Do you confront wrongdoing, even if it means confronting a supervisor?
- Do you hide legitimate income to avoid paying taxes on it (such as not reporting cash payments)?
- Do you claim tax deductions you can’t document?
Because we tend to be blind to our own shortcomings, I challenge you to ask a friend – one with integrity – to tell you honestly whether you are more Gibbo or his boss.
The answer is critical to your future success.
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.”
Luke 16:10 (NIV)

Time For Real Talk – The leverage you have when your husband won’t leave the other woman
by Sarah P.
Note: This is the first installment of a two-part series where Sarah P. will address the leverage one has when their spouse won’t leave their affair partner. This week she addresses when the husband won’t end the affair and next week she’ll dig into when the wife won’t leave her affair partner.
It’s one of the worst feelings in the world: feeling you lost control of your marriage and have possibly lost your husband for good. Your husband was selfish enough to have an affair and yet you feel you don’t have a say in what happens next. Or perhaps what hurts the most is the feeling that you are not enough.
But, here is the thing—feeling you are not enough and actually not being enough are two very distinct things. Unfortunately, feelings are powerful and they can make or break you because they inform your perception of yourself. This will influence how you carry yourself and even how you make decisions.
After your husband has had an affair, one of the biggest feelings (lies) you will have to overcome is that you were not enough. Otherwise, how could he have done what he did?
He did what he did for many reasons, but mostly because he was selfish and did not have enough integrity to stop himself. He is a flawed person who did not think of the harm he would be doing to his family.
But, regardless of his actions, you still have power – and a lot of it. You have more leverage than you could ever imagine and you can use your inherent position of power to get him to think twice about the other woman.
Understanding Your Power
You might ask yourself what kind of power you have when he won’t give up his affair partner. The power that you have has to do with the nature of a man’s feelings when he has an affair. When men have affairs, here is what you need to know about how they feel about you:
- When a man has an affair, usually, his love for his wife is not diminished.
- When he has an affair, usually he does not want to give up his marriage.
- A man can have an affair that is purely sexual and he can separate it entirely from his life as a husband and father. (1)
- A man’s greatest fear is that his wife will have a sexual affair with another man. (Yes, this is a great paradox and a double standard. But, feelings are not logical).
- A man has conflicting feelings for his mistress. On one hand, he is in lust and carried away by the heady cocktail of drugs the brain produces. (I call it “lust dumb”). On the other hand, he has a nagging feeling that he might have done the wrong thing and that the other woman isn’t so great.
- A part of him knows the relationship with the other woman can go nowhere because she is inherently untrustworthy.
- Ninety percent of men choose not to leave their wives for their mistresses. (Whether their wife leaves is a different matter).
- A man can still be in what he considers a generally happy marriage while still having an affair.
- Beauty is usually not a motivation for cheating since only 12% of cheaters think their mistress is more attractive than their wives. (2)
- About 70% of men never believed themselves to be capable of cheating. (3)
All of the above points make no sense to most women. But, knowledge is power and knowing his perspective on all of this allows you to see exactly where you stand. When you know where you stand, you can easily see the leverage that you have in your marriage.
How You Can Proceed When Your Husband Won’t End the Affair
The first thing you must do is to make sure that you do not carry yourself a wounded warrior or a woman who is second best. In fact, you should carry yourself as a woman who is the best because you did nothing wrong and you had the integrity to stay true to your marriage. Therefore, instead of walking around you are afraid you are going to lose him, make him earn you back.
You can do this first by carrying yourself with confidence and by developing a full and meaningful life outside of your relationship. As Linda and Doug have mentioned several times over the years, self-care is vital.
Why not take up ballroom dancing without him, join a co-ed walking or jogging group, or go to the gym and get a personal trainer (perhaps a male one at that).
Perhaps getting a haircut and color and updating your wardrobe with a couple of outfits that fit well and make you feel good about yourself. Why?
Are you doing this to get him back – to punish him?
All of this might sound superficial to you at first. But, if you think about it, you will soon realize that all of these things serve to build your confidence both inside and out.
When you take time for yourself, you are saying to yourself that you are worth it and others will take note. You will naturally carry yourself someone who matters and who deserves to take up the space around you.
Naturally, your husband will wonder what’s going on and start to think more about you and less about the other woman. After he sees a change, he may begin to fear that he will lose you. This is a big deal since he never stopped loving you and his intent was never to lose you.Finally, if he still doesn’t budge, it may be time to coolly and confidently ask him to leave. As you ask him to leave, you may remind him that he chose to pursue certain endeavors that are destructive to your marriage. Then, simply tell him he needs to start packing.
You might be thinking that everything I have said to this point is hogwash, too harsh, or un-Christian. But, I beg to differ since I attained this perspective after reading a book by Dr. James Dobson of Focus On the Family. The book is called Love Must Be Tough: New Hope for Marriages in Crisis and it provides advice that sounds 100% counter-intuitive to most of us. (4)
Dr. Dobson openly admits that many men will have their cake and eat it too if they are allowed to do so. He says that the most powerful thing that a woman can do is to ask her husband to leave and to stand by that decision.
There will be no going back and forth, no crying, no listening to his manipulation and protestations of love. You do not have time for that and you will simply make sure he leaves. If he does not wish to do that, ask a male family member to come over and help him pack.
This is not the time to worry about his feelings, because he did not worry about how his actions would impact you or your children. (If the children ask, tell them that you two have some things to think about and the thinking is better done separately).
If you are a Christian, I urge you to ignore your pastor or friends who tell you that a Christian woman stands by her man. If you are not convinced by what I say, you must read the book by Dr. Dobson, who is an authority on Christianity, to get the whole Christian perspective.
You must understand that when your husband has an affair, the last thing you want to do is to “give him grace.” I need you as a woman to put on your sassy pants and refuse to take it.
What purpose does any of this serve if he moves out—doesn’t that get you further away from your goal?
No again.When he is asked to move out, a major shift in his thinking will occur. He will look at the other woman and blame her for what happened. He will start to look at her in a critical light and wonder if she was worth it. He will pull away from her.
When he starts being less attentive to the other woman, her nasty side will ly rear its ugly head. The other woman will begin to act clingy, become demanding, and require more of him. She will give him ultimatums and order him to make choices he doesn’t want to make.
Suddenly, it’s not so fun anymore because real life hits him smack in the face. He will be ripped right off Fantasy Island only to be thrown into Fatal Attraction as the other woman stares him down with angry, bloodshot eyes. At that point, it will sure stink to be him.
You see, being a woman of integrity also means standing for principle and doing what is right. Both common moral codes as well as the Ten Commandments forbid adultery. If he will not give up the other woman, then refuse to be an enabler to adultery by allowing him to continue to live at home. But, forcing him to move out is also the very thing that will bring him back.
Even though it might seem frightening, please know that you have always been the one in the right and standing up in this way to his adultery could be the best thing that can happen to your marriage.
A final word: if this article makes sense to you, please order a copy of Dr. Dobson’s book because it contains all of the reasoning behind why it’s best to take a stand.
But, it also provides the details of how to correctly pursue this course of action. My articles can only scratch the surface of topics and get you thinking in the right direction.
But, always consult a professional before proceeding with life-changing events.
Many blessings to you and always remember that you are not alone on your journey and there is relief in sight.

7 Things I Do When My Husband Insults Me by Word
Kate Gitman 6 months ago — in Family
I’ve been living with a man who insulted me by word for 6 years. After we got married I’ve noticed that he could get too irritated for no reason. My husband became angry to the point that he could insult me by word, which was so poisonous for our relationship.
To be honest, I had never faced such situations before, my parents have almost ideal relationship even now and I simply didn’t know how to react to such behavior. I had nobody to help me and I’ve made quite a lot of mistakes when trying to handle his temper.
Luckily, we’ve overcome that terrible period and now I know what to do when my husband insults me by word.
1. Stay calm
This is the most critical factor that determines the outcome of the quarrel. Once you give up and let your emotions out, the results may be much worse. Every time I used rude words in response, he got even more furious and uncontrolled.
It’s really hard to pull yourself together and keep back everything you want to say at the moment. But remember that in intense situations people often say many unnecessary things they don’t mean at all. Psychology experts claim that you should talk in a calm, quiet manner.
The opponent will have to calm down too, at least in order to hear what you say.
2. Don’t tolerate
For a long time I ignored my husband’s attacks and thought that it would pass. On the contrary, he started to criticize, mock at me and use rude words even more often. He d to try my nerves and see how much I could stand.
I’ve realized that tolerance of his insults was the worst thing that I could do.
You can ignore the insults of some unimportant people a rude assistant at the shop or a waiter, but when it comes to your close people, and husband in particular, tolerance is something you should strongly avoid.
3. Make use of humor
While humor is viewed as one of the best and most powerful ways to respond, I found it extremely difficult to use humor when my husband insulted me. The feeling of resentment was so strong that I just wanted to cry with rage.
Can you imagine how it feels to make a pleasant face and start joking instead? However, this is exactly what you should do. The main thing about humor is that it undermines the power of rude words and relieves tension.
Try to make a mockery by exaggerating the insult or adding something.
Apart from ungrounded rude words, insult also implies criticism and sound judgment. Sure, this is no excuse for those who use insults, but from time to time it’s better to pay attention to the words. My husband’s words and opinion were important to me, and sometimes I found a great deal of truth in his rude words, even though they were painful.
‘You’re so messy! You’re good-for-nothing wife’ that’s what he told me one day when he entered the kitchen and saw the stock of dirty dishes in the sink and some leftovers on the table. You know, I started to be a more organized as for my household chores. No, I’ll never justify his behavior, but sometimes there was a part of truth in his rude words.

5. Have a frank conversation
You can use many tricks to handle your partner’s hot temper, but sooner or later you’ll get tired, just I did. I couldn’t stand such behavior any longer so it was necessary that we have an open dialog and make things clear. I chose the moment when he was in a good mood and asked him to have a talk with me.
To be more precise, I asked him to keep silent and not to interrupt. I told him everything I felt. I described my feelings and emotions and it seemed to work! He realized that words can hurt more that physical violence. When you decide to talk to the person who insults you, try to be as polite as possible.
The conversation that is meant to reconcile you shouldn’t develop into a new fight.
6. Don’t take things personally
I know how hard it is, but try to be cool-headed and realistic. You don’t think that all those words he says are really true, do you? In most cases verbal abuse is more painful than physical one. Insults hit your sore point, ruin your dignity and self-esteem and diminish your importance as a person.
While physical violence leaves scars on your body, an insult leaves scars on your soul. However, try to distract yourself from the insults and don’t take them too personally.
I mentioned that sometimes you should take your husband’s word into account, but you should see the difference between a pure insult and a sound criticism.
7. Leave him alone
It always works and gives desirable results. When I saw that he was getting angry and started insulting me, I just left him alone under any pretext. This is really simple and effective way to handle your partner’s anger.
Say with a serious face that you have an appointment and leave him alone. Say that you need to help your children with homework, work in the garden or think up anything that enables you to leave the room. Be sure your partner would be rather disappointed and puzzled.
Don’t mock or play the fool. It’s important to look serious and significant.
Someone would say that quarrels and insults are an integral part of any relationship and they cannot lead to any consequences. But when you feel that your beloved goes too far, you shouldn’t tolerate that. Word abuse is as harmful as physical one, even though it’s not so visible. I hope my experience will help you to handle your partner’s anger and insults.
