Here Are Reasons Why Affairs Happen. Bode has been starved of sex in his matrimonial home. His wife, Sandy feels justified to “close shop” for him because she suspected he was cheating on her. This even increased his vulnerability and drove him more into the hands of the daughters of Eve who have been itching to have him! Why do affairs happen?

A major point of conflict between couples has to do with adultery! This does not have to do with those without the church alone. There is adultery within the church as well.

An affair can be defined as a sexual relationship, romantic friendship, or passionate attachment between two people without the knowledge of the other spouse.

Nobody is immune to having an affair. Nothing can justify having an experience. God frowns at it.

Why do affairs happen?

Once we can know the root cause, the solution is not far-fetched.

Here Are Reasons Why Affairs Happen
1. Warning and Wake-Up Call
Some people have affairs in other to simply “warn” their spouse and tell them what they are capable of doing. Can you beat that?

When you try to warn or get back to your spouse through an affair, the consequences that follow are really not pleasant.

Pro 6:32-33 (MSG)
Adultery is a brainless act, soul-destroying, self-destructive;  [33]  Expect a bloody nose, a black eye, and a reputation ruined for good.

2. The Needs
When the sexual and emotional needs of either party are not met, it could lead to an affair.

As couples, strive to satisfy each other’s needs as much as you can.

It helps to reduce the vulnerability that arises as a result of unmet needs.

3. A Bruised Ego
This may sound ridiculous, but men often have affairs to repair broken-down egos!

At the same time, this may sound “valid” to men, but affairs are still wrong and always come with attendant consequences.

There is never a “good reason” for adultery! The after-effects care less why it happened.

Wives, don’t deliberately bruise your husband’s ego.

Instead, massage it, and protect it. Here Are Reasons Why Affairs Happen

May God grant you more understanding in Jesus’ name.

I will not be trapped

Lord, shield my marriage from all evils   

Pro 6:32 (GW)
Whoever commits adultery with a woman has no sense. Whoever does this destroys himself.

Set boundaries to prevent affairs

Prov 6
