Question of the Week: Intoxicating

If you were happily married, and then met someone you felt was certain to always bring you deeply passionate, intoxicating love, would you leave your spouse? What if you had kids?

Absolutely not. Especially if kids were involved. I'm one of those rare people that actually thinks that a marriage committment should be one of those "for life" kind of things. Now, I do think that there are legitimate reasons for a marriage to dissolve into divorce. But one of those reasons is not because one of the people in that relationship was foolish enough to fall for someone else because they allowed their emotions to control their actions. But I guess in the real world, it happens all the time. I've watched it happen and I think the people who make those kinds of decisions are, at best, mentally challenged. At worst, they're selfish people who can't see beyond their own wants and desires to be concerned with how their actions affect those around them.

*Question of the Week comes from The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock, Ph.D.

  1. if you meet someone and you know them well enough to know they will always bring you that kind of love ... then you have already crossed too many lines! there are many forks in the road. often, people say they "didnt mean for this to happen, it just did" but there is ALWAYS a choice!
