What are the Consequences of an Affair? Also: Integrity, Cohabiting and In-Laws

by | May 28, 2011

Dr. Bing presents his second podcast, commenting on recent affairs in the news and their numerous unintended Welcome to our second podcast.

I’m trying to do these once a week on Friday, but have a few bugs to work out!  Today I compare the view of living together outside marriage in Jane Austen’s day (early 1800’s) as expressed in her book Pride and Prejudice versus our view of cohabitation today.  Our cavalier attitude we have about sexuality outside marriage is not far away from having an affair in general (both involve sex with someone you are not married to) has lead to more affairs with devastating effects upon more than just the people involved: the immediate family, the extended family, colleagues, and society in general.  I compare the dire consequences of an affair (looking at three well known affairs in the news in recent weeks) with integrity and find integrity a better option.  In addition, I answer a blog reader’s question about how to deal with in-laws.

I’m still pretty new at this so I apologize in advance for too many ahh’s and you knows on the podcast.  It’ll probably take me a while to get used to this!  Still, welcome aboard and I hope you are encouraged in your marriage to keep your integrity and dignity from this day forward!
