When it comes to adultery, never say, “It won't happen to me.”
Just when you think your marriage is safe from adultery is when you may be the most vulnerable.
With eye-opening stories, clinical insights, and up-to-date data, Dave Carder reveals what adulterers learned the hard way—and what they want the rest of us to know to save us the pain.
Dave Carder, counselor and author of the bestselling Torn Asunder (100,000 in print), is a sought-after expert on issues of adultery. Here he helps you make your marriage adultery-proof by showing you:
Marriage is too sacred to be taken casually. Affairs are a very real threat, and they can destroy lives and families. For this reason, Anatomy of an Affair should be on every church leader's and marriage counselor's required reading list, and in the home of every married couple.
Includes charts and assessments to understand and guard against affairs.
This book is the revised edition of Close Calls (2008)
Dave Carter's Anatomy of an Affair: How affairs, attraction & addictions develop and how to guard you marriage against them is a revision of a much earlier book (Close Calls: What Adulterers Want You to Know About Protecting Your Marriage), but is filled with updated information and practical wisdom. Carter writes of the warning signs, triggers and close calls in our marriages. He highlights the tools necessary to make marriages stronger.
Complacency and comfortability can sometimes signal the dangers that make affairs possible. Communication is key for marriage that weather these storms. Carter is able to offer resources along with exercises and stories that can help us guard our marriages against affairs.
I believe this book is a great resource for pastors and couples and will use it in marriage counseling for years to come.
