What is adultery? According to Wikipedia it means "Sex by a married person with someone other than their spouse".
Thanks to Cloud for the interesting email. Extract from the email :-
"Adultery happens when you start looking for what you don't have.
'Wow, this girl in my office is a real looker. I'm crazy about her because she's so understanding, intelligent, tender - so many things that my spouse is not.'
Somewhere along the way, you'll find a woman or a man who will be more charming or sensitive. More alluring. More thoughtful. Richer. Have greater sex appeal. And you will find a woman or man who will need you and pursue you and go loco over you more than your spouse ever did. Because no wife or husband is perfect.
Let's say your wife is melancholic by nature. You may find yourself drawn to the pretty clerk who has a cherry laughter. Or because your wife is a homebody in slippers and pyjamas, smelling of garlic and fish oil, you may fall for a fresh-smelling young sales representative that visits your office in a sharp black blazer, high heels, and a red pencil cut skirt. Or because your husband is the quiet type, your heard may skip a beat when you meet an old college flame who has the makings of a talk show host.
But wait! That's only 10% of what you don't have. Don't throw away the 90% that you already have! Add to your spourse's 90% the 100% that represents all the years that you have been with each other. The storms you have weathered together. The unforgettable moments of sadness and joy as a couple. The many adjustments you have made to love the other. The wealth of memories that you've accumulated as lovers.
Adultery happens when you start looking for what you don't have. But faithfulness happens when you start thanking God for what you already have."
I think this is a nice article which might be true. Always treasure whateever you have or whoever is important to you. Adultery can cause impact to children and also to another person's life. In between, the children will suffer the most. All this time, men are always the one with the higher percentage of committing adultery. Why is that?
Is it the hormones? The desire/lust is more than women?
All these years in my life, I've heard who and who is whose mistress lah.. What surprises me most is that.. one of my long time classmate is someone's mistress. I couldn't believe what I heard and also feel disappointed. She got all the requirements to become a model or someone who is sucessful. But.. I guess love is quite blind at times. Or money factor.
