Guard Your Marriage #11

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.

Inventing Excuses to Call or Meet
"I started figuring out ways I could drop off something at her house when her husband was gone.  He and I knew each other and I would always return borrowed tools in the afternoon when I knew she'd be there alone."

"I would wait until the end of the work day.  Then I'd call him just before closing time about something I'd made up as a 'business question' and we'd talk."

"The more entangled we got, the more I planned times where he and I could practice together.  We started meeting more often."

"She started arranging her schedule so that her husband dropped her off at committee meetings.  I would hang around and offer to take her home, acting with as much nonchalance as I could muster up."
