It is frequently said that if you fail to plan, you can plan to fail. That’s true in a number of areas, including your marriage. When you talk with most married couples they’ll tell you that their marriage is strong and that there is no chance of an affair. Yet, half of all first marriages in the US end in divorce and the percentage climbs after that. People think that they know how they will respond to an affair but unless they’ve talked with their spouse about it, they are woefully unprepared. When someone is attracted to you, it makes you feel great and, chances are, you are not really prepared for how you will react.
Although affairs are not the biggest reason for divorce in the US, they are the most obvious reason and a pitfall that you can avoid if you see it coming.
