"Every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed"...but HELLO!..peeps allowin' themselves to be enticed don't make an impact for Christ.

Single and married people.. they get all enticed, tempted and lured away to that O so attractive, seemly-lovely, sweet-lookin' bait ..that hides the fatal hook.  

With every choice there's a process, and with every process there's a result. And guess what…you get to make the choice, but you don't get to choose the result. 

Adultery sadly seems to be a drawn-out.. yes, longer kinda destructive process, but the public around the couple affected doesn't see all the thoughts, the fantasy, the lust, the little flirt-comments and actions.. or this longer process. This blunder ain't for you or anyone ever, but God is for you. 

Hey Buckeroo, got a perverse sorta problem, bail on even the inception of such - it isn't leading anywhere good ..for anyone! You'll be so glad you bailed on it. Change your thoughts (i.e., refocus, repent and believe). Admit it and quit it. Trusting the Bible-Jesus is step-ONE for all exceptions. 

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. Worldliness (such an old term..) is encroaching, trying to move in on ya. Kick it to the curb! 

"Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever."

What are you regularly feeding your mind and inner human spirit? "You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?"
"If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own..."
Sow to the Word and Spirit of God in you, believer. Not to this world system, not to fornication, not to infidelity, not to dead religion, or to your ole fleshly nature that tells ya to do what it tells ya to do.

In your first-love relationship with Christ, sow to faithfulness and ditch all that junk that's bad for people. Sin is fun for season, but you feed on what really edifies.  

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." ~ Paul

It's not..pop and then gone! Nope. Most of the time marriages don't really end with a blow out, they end with an uber-slow leak. Want that? No! The Bible says…
"Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death."  
But loyalty starts in the mind, God is totally loyal and can make you very loyal. Cast down imaginations. Know intimately and worship ..HIM.. putting the Lord first in everything, for He ain't bored. He alone can give you life during this life. Opt to quickly flee the youthful passions that are evil and pursue righteousness (a right vertical relationship), faith (not in self as your god), love (that's real), and peace in the Prince of peace. Choose to renounce all ungodliness, worldly passions, and to live self-controlled in Christ today.. yes, upright, and godly lives for His glory.
