Have you left the door to temptation open?

As part of our mentoring program, one of the first things we do is show couples the Five Love Languages video by Dr. Gary Chapman and have them take the profile. Then, at our last mentoring session, we show them the video segment on the “In Love” Experience and ask them to put boundaries around their marriage.  It amazes us how many discount this part and tell us that they will never let this happen to them.  We wish this was the case. No one sets out to be unfaithful.  But once a marriage starts to drift, the door to temptation is wide open. The couple never sees it coming.  They never thought it could happen to them.  They all felt it was completely against their own morals, beliefs and values. See they never had a plan in place to prevent this from happening.  So we want to encourage you, if you have not yet set up some boundaries to protect your marriage, please do so NOW!  What rules and guidelines will prevent you from becoming drawn to someone else? Just saying, “It won’t happen to us,” is what countless others have said that later found themselves in this most miserable situation.  Details could include allowing your spouse access to all emails, social media, cell phone records, financial accounts, etc.  The more detailed you are, the greater likelihood of your success.
