Gospel singer Tye Tribbett suffered from such terrible depression during the breakdown of his marriage, he contemplated suicide "almost every day". Tribbett's relationship with his wife Shante became strained after he admitted to having an affair with a woman from his choir, Greater Anointing, in 2009.

The damage to their marriage was compounded when Shante sought revenge by cheating on Tribbett with another man, sending him spiraling into a deep depression. He tells the Associated Press, "I thought it was something that'll never happen. I saw infidelity with my mum and dad who was a pastor, which made them split. I told myself that I would never do that. So when it happened in my marriage, it was like 'Whoa.' God broke down my self-righteousness, my pride..."

"When I was between my house and mum's home (during the separation), I was contemplating suicide - almost every day." But the couple, which shares two daughters, has since patched up its relationship, and Tribbett insists the union is now stronger than ever.

He adds, "Every second, it's like we are texting each other. We've been married for 13 years, but it's kind of like we are dating again. Personally, this is a fresh start for me as a husband and a father."

You're going to find judgmental people no matter where you go. Tye Tribbett made a huge mistake, but all of us, including myself, have made HUGE mistakes. The difference is that his life is revealed for all the world to see. And he's admitting to it, fixing it, and moving forward; the noble thing to do. A true man of God learns from his mistakes. No one is perfect. I'm not condoning what he did, but i'm not gonna judge him and call him fake. God's mercy endures forever. not just for you, but also for the people on the radio.

The world accuses us of being judgemental, but the first words out of their mouths are condemnation when another man falls.

He just did a wonderful thing,confersing or admitting tha you did is something that God said in His word,it is what he always want us to do as christans,if you humble yourself and show respect to God,surrender, he will always lift you up no matter what people say

I am so glad he didn't do it. God always allows us to go so low and then he picks us up and shows us that he is Greater than what we're going through.
