Contra Christian stereotypes, it’s married people who are more prone to sexual sin and sexual temptation, not singles.
Another example: this letter to an advice columnist:
- Dear Carolyn:
I have been seeing a married woman for 15 years. She was my childhood sweetheart and we never really got over each other. I know I need to break away, but whenever I try I get pulled back in (I know, I know).
She doesn’t know if she can ever leave her marriage. I know she wants to, I have no doubt. I just don’t think she has the strength to. The marriage is not good, but she has adult children that I feel will never accept me and she is afraid they will reject her if she ends her marriage.
She is “content” with our relationship the way it is, but I want more. I have woken up alone for 15 years, don’t vacation, don’t do the things a “normal” relationship would include. I just read a letter I wrote her nine years ago explaining I need more, and it could have been written yesterday. I feel like my life is passing me by.
I know in my heart it will never work out, but it is hard to imagine my life differently. Help! Is counseling something I should consider?
Tell Me I Am Stupid for Wanting Only One Person for 40 Years
And let it sink in that this is a MARRIED woman who is having an affair:
it is not SINGLE women who are sexual temptresses, as is often thought by Christians, it is MARRIED PEOPLE.
