If you wouldn't do it in front of your SO, you shouldn't be doing it at all.
"Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification" Romans 14:19
Funny. I see both sides of the argument. It really isn't an issue here, unless you count my love for Clive Owen! Lol.
Quoting laylolilah:Anything you couldn't do in front of your partner, anytime you speak in a different manner to someone than you would if your partner was there..
In my opinion.
Quoting conniejo75:Imho.... There is no such thing as emotional cheating. It only crosses line if there is intent of something sexual happening. Otherwise all friendships could be "emotional cheating"
Yeah if it would make your SO raise an eyebrow, I agree.
Emotional intimacy is usually understood as an emotional (non-phyiscal) relationship which reduces the level of intimacy for one's marriage. I am not articulating it well. It is basically when the emotions of one extra-marital relationship harm the intimacy of the marriage leading to more fighting, reduced physical chemistry and so on. I am not sure there is a defined specific point, but I like the comments about nothing happening that could not be done in front of the partner. I disagree that affairs are those only that become physical. An emotional relationship can do just as much, if not more, damage to a marriage.
This was very well worded, and so true!
I am fine with my DH having friends of the opposite sex amount of time isn't important to me. My biggest issue would be if he was discussing our marriage with her.
