I was accused of having an affair with an elder because I was 'too' upset when I found out he was a double-lifer and a pervert my husband thought there was something going on....know of a few elders who had affairs though and got away with it, position and reputation intact while the woman was vilified...the men did'nt seem to have that problem....they were assumed to have been 'led astray' by the tempation and were apparently unable to resist the evil, seductive, charms of the woman ......
Did anyone ever have an affair?
Wouldn't it make a lot more sense to have an affair with a "worldly" person?
I mean, how in the world could you be discreet and in the same congregation?
I remember when I was around 30, a younger brother used to flirt furiously with me. He'd sit next to me at the book study and then tell me afterwords how thrilled he was about it. He'd make sure his knee brushed mine. I can recall him kissing my hand one time, too. He looked similar to, but better than Lorenzo Lamas. It was very flattering and really kind of thrilling. I was so very unhappily married. Funny thing is that his older brother liked me and their father, who was happily married, always complimented me and lingered long in handshakes, looks, etc. For some reason they all liked me. Must have been my *cough* magnetic charm.
