How Affairs Happen

Jan 16, 2024 / Saving Your Marriage     

I’ve been hearing that question more and more lately.  People who’ve had affairs often say that they had some unfulfilled need that slowly began to be met by someone other than their spouse—a friend, co-worker, old flame, a neighbor.  From there, it was a slippery slope to a full-blown extramarital affair and a broken marriage.  So what can you do? Well, be aware of danger signs and take action.  The best way to prevent an affair is to stop it before it starts. I don’t have all the answers, but I’d like to share with you how to avoid cheating by meeting your spouse’s needs.
