Fear of Cheating

SYMPTOMS

  • I guard my heart with a long checklist
  • This checklist is supposed to insure me from falling in love without my brian signing off
  • When I find a woman that magically hits this checklist, I try to discourage her
  • The number one tool for discouragement is sharing that I never stop loving women, including my ex
  • I also ask craftily and sometimes directly whether they have any conditions for divorce
  • If she has a condition for divorce, especially adultery, I go on to make a strong case for why this is wrong.
  • I don't plan on cheating but these are scenarios where its clearly justified to cheat
  • So, what is wrong with you? Why would you go into a marriage and have an out?
  • Clearly, God doesn't approve of such; repent or go to hell for dooming your marriage ahead of time.

“In the end, Love is like walking on water.”

Matthew 14:30–31

I DO NOT.

“To be human is to love imperfection from a knowledge of one’s short coming.”
