5 Reasons Why Married Women Should Rethink Male Friends

On occasion, my friend must excuse herself to attend to some matter. Most times, the conversation continues without a hiccup and my husband or friend will return within minutes and reignite their contribution to the gathering. Sure, married women can have male friends, but is it the best choice for the long-term health of your marriage? When I meet a new girlfriend that I like, I want to know everything about her.

I want to hear her life story. I want to know why she believes what she believes. I want to hear about her struggles and successes. The problem with knowing everything about the someone of another gender is that you start to develop a bond. This is usually a healthy thing among two females, but between two people of the opposite sex it can quickly turn into an unhealthy attachment.

I made my rounds over appetizers and when dinner was served, we all took our seats. We had a happy conversation with another male member of my creative team. During this time my marriage was in tip-top shape as it could be.

Working with male presents a special set of problems because married women are expected to interact with everyone, no matter their gender.

You spend long hours together and there is something genuinely exciting about completing a project as a team. But beware of your heart when interacting more than necessary with your male co-workers. When is the last time your best friend asked you to balance your checkbook or take out the trash? My kids made most of that mess anyhow. No bills to discuss.

No big family decisions to make. Just good conversation. Instead, I do what I hate. We should also remember that we have an enemy that is seeking to destroy everything good in our lives. Marriage is a symbol that the Bible calls a mystery because it represents the Christ and his bride the church. Not only for our sake but for theirs too. There is no hard and fast rule for how much communication with another man is too much. Marriage is such a sacred thing.

With the divorce rate being so high, I hope that women everywhere would take the necessary steps to keep their marriages healthy and free from the distractions that could be caused by a close male friendship. This is a tricky one. A longtime friend of mine was in town for a short period of time. I was newly married and he asked if he could see me.

So I told him that I would meet with him if I could bring my husband and daughter along. Keeping your husband in the mix could be an option to water-down relationships with long-time male friends. Another way is to just be honest with them. Tell your male friend that he is valuable to you, but that you value your relationship with your husband more.

One of the best pieces of advice I have ever heard on marital infidelity or the potential for it is confession to the only one that can do anything about it: your spouse. Depending on the severity of your emotional affair, this might be harder or easier, but it is a necessary step. He trusts and knows that I will do everything in my power to curtail those feelings. It was marriage-saving when I went through my problems at the company I mentioned above.

I hope you hear my heart on this matter about close male friendships. I believe this is a noteworthy goal and I want to encourage women in it. Head covering Christian woman who loves good wine, coffee, stinky cheese and missionary books. My favorite dessert is Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake.

I am a Christian author, blogger, and speaker. I fell in love with my husband because he had rain drops on his glasses true story. In my spare time I homeschool my six children 5 girls, 2 boys.

Please pray for me as I resolve and commit this matter to God and confess to my husband. No matter your feelings. Feelings are only fanned by thoughts and time spent together. Take your efforts and focus them solely on your husband. Thank you so much for this piece. My hubby is in the military, so I get to spend months alone with the kids and most times spent with business colleagues..

I met this cute guy…and before I knew it…it had a spark…I know I had made my mind never to cheat on my husband…but the rate it went, I was some few contacts away from doing so….

And thankfully I saw this article. The feeling is squashed, am back to normal.. Thank you again for saving my marriage…God bless you more. Praise the Lord. Stay strong. Ok, I get it. Objectifying women or men for that matter is positive in this situation. Obviously men and women should only think lustfully about one another and not act as appropriate adults. This leads to abuse also.

People do not need to be treated as if they have to have sex with all opposite sex friends or that no one has ever turned gay or lesbian. Well, if you consider 35 old when I wrote this. Life has taught me this and it continues to be confirmed to me. Self-love is the cornerstone of this article…I LOVE myself enough to remove myself from relationships with men.

I think that being successful in marriage is more important than holding onto a male friend. I strongly believe in the free will of a woman to choose to be careful of her ways. Our current society wants to believe that everyone can do everything they want to without harm. This is the heart of this blog. Male friendships once you are a married woman are not beneficial enough to continue in them. This article disappointed me, in many ways. It begins with a great topic, but ends on deeply ingrained misogyny.

The experiences are out dated and fail to take into account self love. Instead, it takes into account others perceptions and their own inability to trust other human beings mainly because they realize they are themselves untrustworthy, as demonstrated by their work story.

I would highly encourage the author to revisit the topic with a less misogynistic viewpoint, and purely from a religious standpoint. Please this is something we should learn it keeps our relationship, so if I can be included when sending your emails.

My comment to this, I liked it and also I have learnt a lot, would like to learn more to safeguard my marriage.

There is a tendency for a woman since I am woman can speak on my behalf only to have a wandering eye if we are not careful. Soul ties can be very strong if it is tied to an opposite sex who is not our husband. Prevention is the best cure, but if we did fall in sin fleeing is the next best cure. Valid reasons though I feel they are controlling to a certain degree if used by a partner. People are hooked onto their TV series.

Every series has some sort of sex being sold in it that such articles are written to address the sexual psyche in the West today.

Porn is so readily available not to mention. These sexual sins just gets permeated around the population and the temptation arises when things go bad in relationships. Love the article and the Radical Christian Woman approach. This is an especially hard subject for me as I am current in the eye of the storm as the result of my husband befriending an old female co-worker in an attempt to help her with her 3rd marriage.

Of course he did not let me in on it. Please understand that women have been raised in a culture to believe they can do everything which of course, they can do all things but not all things are beneficial. If you find she refuses to change, this is a warning to you. Whoever she is as a girlfriend…she will be as a wife. Obviously, the Lord can change her over time but you have to be willing to take that risk.

Obviously, I know nothing of your actual relationship, so this is all based on theory and not reality. I do have male friends, two of them are in committed relationships and one is single. They are out there, but I agree, not many Christian women are super excited about those topics or we are and are hiding it or too busy or something. I will pray that the Lord guides someone your way.

I pray your spirit discerns when a woman in your life would be a good fit for these topics. Trying to navigate a male-dominated workforce does make it even more tricky! It is interesting.

Several months before my marriage ended, I had a conversation with a friend who I will call SA no names will be used to protect identities.

According to her, these single friends were killing my marriage. She said that if I wanted to stay married, I needed to hang around the right people, namely, "married and coupled people.

I get that she needs to get out and let loose at times. Last weekend, she and her friends went down to Las Vegas for the night. The original plan was just to go down for the evening and come back, but she called late and they decided to spend the night. About half of her friend group is single and half is married, so I wonder if she is relieving some of her single lady days or something.
