So here you are, happy in a loving, committed relationship and yet at every turn there is temptation. There’s the attractive assistant manager in the office down the hall, the client who always seems to be flirting with you or an attractive member of the opposite sex that approaches you when you are out on the town with your friends.
One person might ask for your phone number or email address. Another starts to talk to you about issues that are quite personal in nature. And yet another goes so far as to hint at something much more. What do you do? Why don’t you cheat? What’s stopping you?
Cheating has unfortunately become quite common in society today. People are faced with temptations of different types daily, but how we act on these temptations depends on who we are. Most couples understand that cheating is wrong yet really can’t explain the temptation to cheat or their reasons for letting those temptations get the best of them.
Infidelity doesn’t just happen. It almost always starts with making poor decisions regarding boundaries in the marriage and when around members of the opposite sex. These poor decisions can be avoided by using proper precautions.
The folks at Marriage Advocates offer the following list that can help put the proper precautions in place so that you can better protect yourself, your marriage and your family from the consequences of infidelity.
