According to some recent statistics, 36% of people have had an affair in the workplace. This number seems incredibly high, but what we don’t realize sometimes is just how easily it can happen to us. While most guys don’t wake up one day saying, “You know, I think I’m going to have an affair today,” we’re naive to think the slide into infidelity is something we’re immune to.
In his book Anatomy of an Affair, Dave Carder talks about how affairs develop, and how to guard our marriages against them. We discuss with him some of the primary reasons and circumstances that cause couples to wander, the difference between physical and emotional affairs (and why emotional affairs are just as detrimental), situations and people to avoid, and how to cultivate a healthy, affair-proof marriage.
