Some are insisting that money is a requirement in order to have an affair. Well, I say, not in all cases. There is such a thing as an emotional affair just in case you are not aware. An emotional affair initially starts as an innocent friendship. A little chit chat here and there that could later on result to an exchange of pro-longed emails or text messages. This kind of an affair does not have physical intimacy in the equation, thereby and somehow, taking out the money in the equation as well. Of course, when you want to meet in some clandestine location to do the deed, in cases of affairs involving physical intimacy, you obviously need money for that. The absence of physical intimacy, somehow equates to eliminating the money part as well.
When you are investing in more time and emotional energy that could later on form a strong emotional bond with someone else aside from your spouse, it would no doubt hurt the intimacy that you should be sharing only with your spouse.
And while an emotional affair may be viewed as harmless by most people involved in such relationships, most psychologist and marital experts believe that it is only a matter of time when the relationship escalates into a full blown extra-marital affair. And I agree with them.
I guess I really ought to buy weight loss pills. Perhaps a few pounds off the scale will improve my self image, and yes somehow, just somehow, I might view this whole emotional affair the same way that you do. *this last part is just me talking to myself.
