Flirting and liking it

     One of the ways to know that you are heading down the road to moral failure is when you find yourself flirting with someone and feeling good about it.  Almost all of us like it when others respond positively to our flirtations.  When you start to look forward to flirting, especially with specific people, beware.  It's a slippery road and can quickly tempt us to move beyond flirting to taking action.
     You are most vulnerable to flirtatious activity when things are not "exciting" at home.  When you are not getting the attention you want or need, you will be more likely to enjoy fliriting with someone other than your spouse.  It may start out innocently, but it can quickly and easily go farther than you intend it to.
      One of the ways you can protect yourself from potential moral failure is to flirt with your spouse instead of someone else.  The grass is never greener on the other side of the fence.  If we were to put as much energy and time into flirting with our spouse as we do with others, we would go a long ways toward saving our marriages.
       Failure to keep on flirting with your spouse is one of the big reasons why so many of our marriages fail.
