Tina Campbell of Mary Mary is asking her friends, fans and loved ones to lift up a prayer to help save her marriage.
In the May issue of Ebony, Tina revealed that she and her husband Teddy have dealt with infidelity in their marriage, and that she almost got physically violent when she found out that he’d cheated on her.
“Once I became aware [of the affair], I initially wanted to kill my husband. I was considering adjusting the will, the living trust and all that kind of stuff,” she confessed. “I did physically try to stab him. Several times-I never got to the point of physical harm, not really, but my words. My words hurt.”
Since sharing that explosive tidbit with the world, things have only gotten worse in her union, and she reached out for help on Mary Mary’s official website with an open letter. After relaying the appropriate pleasantries, Tina candidly dove into the heart of the matter.
“Well, I’m actually writing you on behalf of my husband Teddy and I,” Tina wrote, assuming that most of her fans had read the revealing piece in Ebony. “Well since the article, the challenges have worsened. My hope turned into hopelessness & despair and I became unwilling to forgive and fight, until God showed me myself.”
Although she pointed out that her husband has struggled with “sexual immorality,” she admitted that she’s been having to fight a few battles of her own. Specifically, she’s been wrestling with “anger, rage, unforgiveness, pride, just to name a few, for over 2 decades.”
Initially they believed that their issues were with each other, but it is their belief that the devil is at the root of the problems in their family. “The devil wanted to use strongholds that took hold of our lives in our childhood, to remain and destroy us as adults. So now instead of being mad at each other we’re mad at the devil and we’re ready to fight,” Tina wrote.
On their own, Tina announced that she and Teddy have begun a 30-day fast to deliver them from the problems plaguing their marriage and restore their once happy home. However, she feels that a little back up from her supporters will be invaluable.
“If u are able to, please fast and/or pray daily that God would answer our prayers and give us a deeper love & commitment to him and to each other,” Tina requested. “We believe he still works miracles and he can give us the greatest marriage we could have ever imagined. We can pray alone BUT your prayers will certainly help.”
From there, Tina finished off her letter, suggesting that fans use the scriptures 2 Chronicles 7:14 and James 5:16 in their prayers.
