Chat with married women
During this time my marriage was in tip-top shape (as it could be).I can’t even imagine what the outcome could have been if we’d been struggling!You don’t have to be initially attracted to a man to fall into this temptation.It can happen over a friendly banter when he picks up his kids from a playdate or a shared common interest that you didn’t realize you had.We ask for help around the house, help picking up toys, taking out the trash.We get in nit-picky fits about the .89 he spent at Chick-Fil-A when you ate the kid’s leftover food to save money before payday. This can become a HUGE source of dissatisfaction with your own husband.It was only a second, but in that second something happened in my heart.By God’s grace, nothing happened and I quit 10 months later because of my growing attraction to the male friend I worked side by side with each day.
My kids made most of that mess anyhow.’ But our husbands are a different story.
Sometimes women don’t have a clue the power we possess over men. Also, we might not know exactly what a man is going through.
We talk our normal happy, girly talk and don’t realize that our natural chattiness can be taken as a sign that we are interested in something more. There are a million things that can magnetize a man’s heart to a woman’s attentiveness, We want to protect not only our own heart but the hearts of others (male and female alike).
Working with male presents a special set of problems because married women are expected to interact with everyone, no matter their gender. You spend long hours together and there is something genuinely exciting about completing a project as a team.
But beware of your heart when interacting more than necessary with your male co-workers.
We had a happy conversation with another male member of my creative team.
