I was deeply touched by the story about Honey Bee’s good friend, who is a loyal husband and a loving dad. As a matter of fact, I ended up having a sleepless night because I couldn’t help but wonder about the whole “messy” situation.
It’s very refreshing, comforting, and even encouraging to hear about a man who was willing to protect his own marriage and family by rejecting a sweet, passionate temptation. (Okay, sisters. Stop those dreamy eyes and wishful fantasies immediately! If you haven’t managed to catch the core problem of the “drama,” here’s one more time just for you: He’s MARRIED! Got it now?) However, before we quickly jump into conclusion that he’s a “man of integrity,” who deserves a gold star or a World’s Best Husband award, I have one curious question to ask. Don’t get me wrong–I totally think he deserves at least ten awards. And you can even have the contact number for WWF ready so they can take effective measures to protect and save this endangered species (come on, faithful men are rarer than pandas…). However, before we can proceed with those steps, I’m just dying to ask this question: Was she hot? (I meant the female tempation.)
Okay, perhaps that was a rather shallow question, but since when men are animals with deep thoughts? Knowing how extremely visual men are, it’s only fair to ask that particular question (Was she hot?) before judging a man’s character and faithfulness. We all know that there are “certain types” of girls/ women (use your common sense, please) that men would never touch and would rather stay (run?) away from, regardless of their own marital/ dating status. Married or unmarried is often not the key factor when a man decides whether to cheat or not to cheat. Men are simple, visual creatures–they think: hot or not hot? As simple as that.
Before I finally fell asleep that night, I did say a little prayer for Honey Bee’s friend. May God continue to bless him with wisdom and self-control to protect his family from predators and also a thankful heart to appreciate his wonderful wife and adorable little girl. Amen.
