Guard Your Marriage #8

Adultery does not just happen. It is the culminating act of many tiny steps of unfaithfulness. We are examining these in order to help safeguard marriages. We offer word-for-word quotes from real people who wrecked marriages (theirs and others). This information comes to us at great expense.

Talking about Personal Matters
"We would talk about things - not big things, just little things that he cared about or that I was worried about."

"We'd meet together for coffee before church and just talk together."

"I was having problems with my son, and she seemed to understand the whole situation so much better than anyone else I talked with.  I'd tell her about the most recent blow-up and she would understand so well.  We just became really deep friends, almost soul mates.  That's what is so weird about this.  We never intended it to go this far."

"I had lost my father just before we got to know each other and he had lost his mother a few years earlier.  He seemed to understand exactly what I was going through.  We would talk for hours about how each of us felt."

"I was so lonely since my husband died and hungry for someone to share life with.  Then he began to call just because he cared.  I loved hearing his caring voice at the other end of the line, even though I knew he was married."

"We spent so much time together at work that I swear she knew more about me than my wife ever did."
