Why do good women choose terrible men?

April 05, 2018

Dear Pastor,

You had a story posted by a writer whose initials were C.F. last year that really caught my attention.

The story was titled 'My husband wants to be a pimp'. After reading her story, I was agitated because, for one, she deserves better.

Two, it is clear that this guy is nothing close to being on her level. Three, scripture tells us, "Let the dead bury the dead, and don't be unequally yoked with unbelievers." And, from the looks of it, that is what it seems like she has done.

So many good and peculiar men like myself have prayed countless times for a good, God-fearing woman who is not afraid to soar to new heights, yet, these women settle for the scraps in front of them instead of pressing beyond the limits of those things that are trying to stop them.

Last, but not least, by being in prison, I see that I have missed out on meeting great women. But, thank God, I will not be here for the rest of my life.


Dear T.G.,

I think that what you are trying to say is that this woman made the wrong choice by having this man as her husband, while good men like you have never met good women.

You consider the writer of the letter to be a good woman, and you believe that her husband does not deserve to have this woman.

There is hope for you because you are looking forward to leaving prison. Hopefully, you will find a good woman. I wish you well.
