“I thought my life is over. I thought my marriage was over. I would lose my family,” country star Dave Robbins was grappling with his own unfaithfulness in the living room with his wife.
His wife hit him with a surprise question: “Do you think you’re saved?”
He had grown up in church: “I thought I was saved. I grew up in a church, knew about the Bible, knew about Jesus, but I didn’t feel saved. I felt separated, ashamed, full of guilt, full of fear, tormented, just tormented.”
Dave Robbins is a founding member of the multi-platinum country band Blackhawk, but ever-burgeoning success only increased temptation for him.
“I have spent an entire lifetime struggling with temptation. I have struggled with alcohol. I have struggled with sex. I have struggled with pornography.”
For seven years in his marriage he struggled with porn and almost ended his marriage with infidelity.
Dave decided to become sober. “I thought that would fix everything and all the other stuff would stop as well.”
But it didn’t.
He was living a double life.
There was another woman in his life. He tried to keep his wife in the dark. He was sexting random women.
For some reason, he thought the solution was to leave his wife and kids. That way, he would be free to pursue his wantonness. But as he pondered this “solution,” ultimately he felt miserable.
“It was sociopath stuff. It was crazy. I was just a dead person.”
Dave’s wife, Mary Lynn Robbins, finally figured out his secret schemes. Read the rest of how to save my marriage.
