A few years ago, someone very close to me had an emotional affair. I will never forget that person saying, “I wish we’d just had sex. Then I could go ahead and get divorced.”
Until that moment, I had no idea what an emotional affair was, much less how damaging it can be to a marriage or family. Amy Bennett knows, because she’s been there. And now she’s written a book about it.
Entangled: A Woman’s Guide – Recognizing Your Emotional Affair, Restoring Your Marriage is an honest look at emotional affairs and practical guidance for getting yourself out of one. Amy uses what she experienced and learned during her own affair to help other women who are struggling with this issue.
Even if you’re not pursuing or participating in an emotional affair at the moment, even if you’ve never even been tempted to do so, this book is a good and important read. It’s not simply a cautionary tale of someone who messed up. It’s a heartbreaking recounting of something that can happen to any marriage – yes, even yours, even mine – and the beautiful story of God’s redemption.
Here’s a summary from the Entangled website:
- Have you long since given up on the fairy tale of your marriage?
- Wondering if your husband wasn’t your soul mate after all?
- Have you found someone else with whom you’re emotionally connected?
- Do you wonder what an emotional affair really is?
- Or are you wondering how to get out of one?
- Is your marriage in a good place and you want to keep it that way?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, I’ve been right where you are. I know first-hand what an emotional affair is but more importantly, I know how to get out. Guaranteed.
If you’re ready for an honest, detailed look into an emotional affair from a Christian perspective this is the book for you. I experienced an emotional affair six years ago and my marriage has been completely restored by the grace of God. Journey with me and see what one looks like, how to get out and how God can meet your deepest need for the love you’re seeking.
