Emotional Affairs?

food-for-thought

Chew on this…

Intimacy is not just about physical encounters.  When someone shares inner feelings, secrets, desires, flirts or flatters, or even places himself or herself in a compromising situation, you are being intimate.  The final analysis:  all forms of intimacy should be reserved for the marital relationship or else you are taking something away.  Something that belongs to the spouse and giving it to someone else.  That wasn’t what the vows were about.

The ultimate deterrent to all of this is a strong set of moral values, rules and standards.  These keep you from even taking the first step.  Because, for sure if you don’t take that first step, you won’t be there to take that final fatal step.

    I have to agree with her. We women, young or old, married or single, have to be so careful especially nowadays. I was out shopping with my Mum the other day, and even then I had to keep up my guard when a couple of young guys walked by and started looking at me. I do not do anything, at least intentionally, to draw attention to myself, but it was disturbing nevertheless.

    Looking forward to the rest of the purity posts!

    God bless,
    ~Laura
