Relationship Advice From Pat Robertson

Move over, Dr. Phil (Photo by Getty Images)So, your husband cheated on you? Eh, just get over it.

That’s the advice that former Southern Baptist minister and televangelist Pat Robertson offered during Wednesday’s episode of “The 700 Club” when a female viewer wrote in to ask how she could regain trust for her philandering husband.  

"Here's the secret. Stop talking about the cheating. He cheated on you, well, he's a man….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?

“You’re praying, 'Oh God, keep me from hating for what he did when he was with that stripper in that hotel room ten years ago and I’ll never forgive him’ kind of thing, please help me…start focusing on the good stuff. 

“Give him honor instead of trying to worry about it. 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.”

He goes on to explain that the Internet and magazines are filled with “salacious pornography” to “entice a man” but that her husband was “captured” (against his will, right?) and it’s a woman’s job to free him.

So that’s it, ladies—after decades of analyzing men by way of television shows such as "Sex and The City," reading countless Cosmo articles, and navigating a post “He’s Just Not That Into You” world, that’s the only relationship advice you'll ever need. Here are four more pearls of wisdom from Robertson.

If a husband strays, it's the mistress' fault:
On the affair between former CIA Director David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell: “The man’s off in a foreign land and he’s lonely and here’s a good-looking lady throwing herself at him. He’s a man.” (Not that Pat condones "immorality", of course...)

"50 Shades of Grey" is a gateway to sex addiction: “The thing that shocks me—shocks me—we always thought this was a male thing, a boy thing, a guy thing. But now, it looks like 30 percent of women are involved in pornography—and they’re getting addicted to it!”

If your husband flirts with other women, don't nag him: “You need to make yourself as attractive as possible and don’t hassle him about it…he’s not going to cheat you on, he’s just playing. But you need to not drive him away and start hassling and hammering on him."

Having marital problems? it's 'cuz you're fugs: "A woman came to a preacher that I know, and she was awful looking. I mean, her hair was all torn up and she was overweight and looked terrible, clothes bad and everything. And she said, 'Oh, Reverend, what can I do? My husband has started to drink.' And the preacher looked at her and said, 'Madam, if I was married to you I'd start to drink too.' We need to cultivate romance, darling! ... You always have to keep that spark of love alive. It just isn't something to just lie there, 'Well, I'm married to him so he's got to take me slatternly looking.' You've got to fix yourself up, look pretty."
