In today’s world of instant gratification, where we have everything at our fingertips, is it surprising that the sanctity of marriage and monogamy are becoming a thing of the past? We have become so used to a fast pace society, commitment to one another is diminishing. Too many people see marriage as just a contract and breaking that contract with infidelity isn’t seen as a problem. This doesn’t just affect the adults of the relationship, it affects our children even more. Values and respect for those we love should never be lost.
- Having sex with only one partner over many decades is likely to become boring and predictable, lacking the passion, sizzle, and intrigue that only a new relationship can deliver.
- When people decide to have affairs to feel more alive, their partners end up feeling like a part of them has died.
- And while I agree that feeling attracted to people other than your mate is completely normal, even inevitable, it doesn’t mean you have to act on it.
“We have many feelings over the course of our lifetime that we choose not to act on for a variety of reasons.”
