Pat Robertson argued on a recent episode of "The 700 Club" that if a man cheats on his wife, she should focus on making the home as "wonderful" as possible so that he doesn't "want to wander."

Robertson began by saying the wife should focus on the good about her cheating husband: "Does he provide a home for you to live in? Does he provide food for you to eat? Does he provide clothes for you to wear? Is he nice to the children? ... Is he handsome?"


"Give him honor instead of trying to worry about it," he continued. "But recognize also, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit and what you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander.”
