Pat Robertson is at it again. This time, the televangelist dished out marriage advice to a woman who wrote his show asking for guidance on how to forgive her cheating husband.

The one-time Republican presidential candidate -- who once condoned divorcing an Alzheimer-inflicted spouse --  told the woman that men have "the tendency to wander a little bit."

"Stop talking about the cheating," he said on The 700 Club. "He cheated on you. Well, he's a man."

He urged the woman to focus on the good qualities about their marriage. "Does he provide a home for you? Does he provide food for you to eat? Does he provide clothes for you to wear?" he asked, adding that the onus is on the woman to keep the "home so wonderful that he doesn't want to wander."

Robertson has a knack for giving out controversial marriage advice. In January, Robertson said on his show that "awful-looking" women are to blame for a loveless marriage. And days after appearing at a campaign rally with Mitt Romney last year, he joked about wife-beating as a way to discipline a "rebellious" wife.
