During the zenith of her turmoil with her unfaithful husband, many people disparaged her, criticized her and some were even accusatory. Knowing her type of pain and betrayal personally, I championed her strength to continue on and to stay strong for her children. If you are currently experience such a betrayal, remember God is your refuge and hiding place (read Psalms 32:7).
Some sources have reported that the Edwards children will live now with their father. Grapevine sources say otherwise and they will be raised by the eldest daughter. I dunno.
What I do know is that Elizabeth Edwards’ death and life raised a question that demands some critical thought.
Question: is it possible for a person to be a bad husband/wife and yet be a good parent?
Some say “NO” because the core issues of honesty, truthfulness and integrity lie at the root of any relationship, hence a person that dishonors his most intimate relationship will likely dishonor the relationships with others.
Others say, “YES” because the marital relationship is completely different from the parental relationship, thereby meaning a man/woman can be a good parent in spite of their inability to be a good mate.
What say you?
