How do you calculate the cost of an affair. The topic is a hard one to examine or discuss, but it is alive, kicking, and well! Alright, pull out your calculator; it’s time to add! Cheating usually comes with an itemized list and expensive price tag. It encompasses more than just money. There is also a steep emotional price.
Lest not forget the impact on your mate and family. After adding in the intangibles such as – humiliation, embarrassment, betrayals, guilt, pain, forgiveness or lack thereof, traces of fractured memories that never fade….and other residue of the moments when the wedding ring came off – the cost is insurmountable. It is infinite. If in the process, an embryo is created or a home is wrecked ending in divorce, the mounting cost leaves the scientific realms of calculations and is transferred directly into the heart(s) of the inflicted. The sting of pain is amazing; it can be sometimes implanted forever and a day. There is simply no erasing of things that cannot be eliminated. So before the final calculation is presented (because with extramarital affairs there is always a price to pay whether you are caught or not), let’s examine the accompanying mountainous debt. Tune in tomorrow for Part 1 of this series – The price tag of affairs.
