Whether others repent should not affect whether we forgive them.

    I have been married over 30 years and sealed in the Temple to my husband. A few years ago he hooked up with another woman. Moved in with her and lived with her a couple of years.
    He finally left her. He now lives on his own and I have struggled to be his friend. I have prayed a lot and felt that I had to always be forgiving. I told him, I forgave him for cheating.
    He has a lot of problems and one of which is his anger. He not only hurt me but his children. Through the past year, I have made a constant effort to work hard to become good friends for the benefit of ourselves, children and grand-children.
    At first, he was constantly yelling at me, blaming me for his problems and I would walk away very hurt and deflated.
    One day, I said to him, ” I have been commanded by my Heavenly Father to forgive 70 times 70 and I will do just that. He has impressed on me very strongly that, “You are his child and His Son.” It is not my place to hurt his son. There for no matter how much you hurt me, “I will continue to forgive you.” That is what Heavenly Father expects of me. Since, that day he has been very careful in the manner in which he talks to me.
