Yes, two blogs in one day!
I receive a lot of hits on my blog from people who are searching: emotional affairs, emotional affairs and the church, Christian emotional affair, woman in emotional affairs.
The more I think about this issue and talk to others about this issue, the more I see the importance of talking about emotional faithfulness.
What does it mean to be emotional faithful? My definition would be that a husband and wife see and value the importance of being each others emotional outlet. They'd see that those emotional needs that they have, should only be satisfied by their mate and no one else.
Remaining emotionally faithful is putting your mates emotional needs first and not looking outside of marriage to find emotional satisfaction.
If you are trying to hide a "friendship" from your mate, chances are you are crossing over into the emotional affairs ground. If you find yourself looking for emotional satisfaction outside of marriage, then again you are treading on the grounds of emotional affairs.
If you are single, remaining emotionally faithful, means you are waiting on God to provide the mate. You are keeping your heart free of entanglements, keeping emotions pure, and trusting God. It's remaining emotionally faithful before you even meet your spouse!
