I have to comment on question #4 concerning unfaithfulness. Jesus said fornication is the only grounds acceptable for divorce. My ex-wife and I have been divorced for four years because of her infidelity. I soon forgave her with God's grace, and now we are fairly good friends. That is a very good thing because we have two daughters who live with me. Your thread was right on the money, I just had to pitch my 2 cents in.

Forgiveness is a Commandment of Scripture

Forgiveness is a commandment of scripture and a real and necessary daily aspect of christian life.
Not always does God direct us to stay friends with, stay married to, or be close to the offender which we have forgiven, however. He never says in His Word that we must be best friends with someone who intentionally hurt a child, for example.
We are to pray for our enemies, Jesus says. But he didn't say we had to sleep with the enemy or pay homage to them.
Whilst Saul was trying to kill David, David kept his heart clean and continually forgave Saul. David had the opportunity to throw a spear at Saul, but chose not to touch Saul or hurt him. David had a completely forgiving heart toward Saul, who meant real harm toward him. David didn't, however stay in the same house or same area as Saul. He went to a cave and made himself safe.
