So you are considering an affair? Think long and hard about what you are preparing to do. Do not let your mind take over your body. Envision your wife, your children, your home; look at them. No, I mean really look at them, smell them, touch them. Enlarge your horizon and consider your parents, your siblings, and your wife’s family; look them all in the eye. Let their gazes take you back to a simpler time when they were all you had.
Think about your job, the people you work with, work for and those who work for you. Are you well liked? Are you admired? Are you a good employee? Would you like to keep that job? Stretch beyond the people in your life and weigh the monetary value of your house, your vehicles, and all your other worldly possessions against that one event with that one individual, who seems to have captured your attentions. Is it worth it?
The dangers of infidelity cover everyone and everything I have just mentioned; every single thing you hold dear in your entire miserable existence is at stake. You could lose absolutely everything. Please don’t shrug it off as nonsense, it happens all too often. It isn’t fun and it damn well is not worth it.
The dangers I have listed do not even include your own peace of mind, your self-worth and pride, your reason for living. The dangers of infidelity include everything you can possibly imagine, everything. Take it from someone who knows!
Are you ready to live out of your car, that is, if you get to keep it? Are you prepared to park at a different State Camp Ground every two weeks? Do you have a buddy who is also paying the price of infidelity and who happens to have an empty bed? Maybe you can bunk with him and his filth and degradation. Does any of this sound intriguing? Tempting? Exciting?
Enduring the dangers of infidelity just plain and simple is not worth it. So you say, “What if I get away with it though?” There’s the rub; you never get away with it. You don’t get away with anything; don’t kid yourself. Your mind will never leave you alone. Every time your beautiful wife does anything nice for you your heart will cry once again. Whenever you are fortunate enough to have your loving spouse stroke you and caress you your thoughts will betray you. Internally you will never live it down. You will suffer the agony of deceit forever.
It doesn’t matter who it is you have decided to include in your plans of infidelity; your wife’s sister, your brother’s wife, a woman from work, someone from the internet or even a professional who promises you the greatest night of your life. It doesn’t matter; don’t you get it? IT DOES NOT MATTER! They are all the same. The danger is the same. The danger is to you not to anyone else.
You may enjoy a very exciting hour or two, maybe a full evening, but after that whoever it is you were with will go back to their life as usual. They too will be so affected by the dangers of infidelity that you will certainly never hear from them again. Best that you don’t too because if they are the type who does not have a conscience, who is not affected by the dangers, who does this all the time, then you have simply buried yourself.
You will hurt so many people, so many friends, so many family members but that isn’t the real danger. The real danger is how you will betray your own self. Never mind how cruel you are to your wife. Forget the betrayal you just exposed your children to. You can even ignore the pain you put both yours and your wife’s families through. The real danger is right there in your mind. The only way your actions will not drive you insane, is if you already are insane.
You will have no choice but to leave your warm, secure loving home and wife. You will have to, simply to maintain your own existence. The thoughts of your one selfish excursion into the world of lust and desire and hunger will chase you down and consume you. Go ahead; think to yourself how you can handle it. Convince yourself your a toughie, you can deal with it. Ignore the fact that you really do love your wife. Go ahead; make someone’s day. Go have your fun! It will be your last.
