On the show I talked about the Covenant Eyes application, you can get it here: www.convenanteyes.com Also the book “Not Just Friends”  The screens, filters, and accessibility to social media are making temptation harder to resist and cheating easier. Reality is, what you’re going to get is a lifetime of regret and anguish. These people are flawed, just like you and your spouse, often more so, if you think about it, what level headed person who has respect for them self and others would even consider messing with a committed man or woman? Sounds like a lot of insecurity, crazy and low self esteem. What makes you think you’re special, you think you’re the only one?

It  is rampant in society, thanks to social media and the internet, we are all just seconds away from an emotional affair. Brows your app store and you will find application after application for secret conversations, social media, dating services and pornography.. they are a dime a dozen. Marriage is threatened everyday by the sources all around us, those tempting Instagram pictures, lonely facebook posts and quick little how are you chats lead us into an emotional affair within seconds, that’s all it takes, just seconds. First, lets define emotional cheating: An emotional affair is a non-sexual relationship with another person whom is not their partner that we are emotionally intimate with, such a...
