1. Nurture Safe Friendships
This is the most important affair-preventer in my life. No marriage can
give you everything. A husband is going to have interests that his wife
will never care about like fishing, hunting, or golfing. So he's less
likely to stray if he can find some good guy buddies with whom to fish,
hunt, and golf.
Early on in our relationship, I realized that Eric was never going to be able to recite the "Hail Mary" or the "Our Father," or be able to tell them apart. So I feed my spiritual hunger by having coffee with my religious women friends, and with my safe male friends, the balding fellows over the age of 60.
