Is a Work Place Affair Now All Right?

He took a position in the Shoals, leaving his home hundreds of miles away. He hadn’t been here long when his wife was diagnosed with a terminal illness. The community rallied round, especially after her death. One of his main sources of strength was his faithful secretary.

Yes, faithful secretary, but unfaithful wife. Her husband was boring—you know how it is. After the death and divorce were a substantial amount of time in the past, this couple wrote a letter to their home church that they were “dating.” They eventually married. After a few more years, the man retired from his public position.

What happened to this couple? We lost track, but we’d be willing to bet that after a few years the secretary/wife found her second husband as boring as her first.

That was over 20 years ago. What happens in today’s moral climate when a couple, each married to others, “fall in love” at work, very public work? A few years ago we saw what happened to an elected official who became embroiled in a similar affair. Surely this sort of thing in certain sectors is covered by a morals clause. No? Then may we suggest writing letters and making it clear that you vote.
