Emotional fidelity means protecting one's spouse

Emotional fidelity has more to do with protecting a spouse's heart and ego than even suspending daydreams about an imaginary lover.

April Perry and Ester Rasband spoke on avoiding emotional infidelity at the annual Women's Conference sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Relief Society on April 29 and 30 at the Brigham Young University campus.

Perry spoke about keeping expectations realistic and avoiding Satan's attempts to persuade women to pursue improper relationships. She said adultery in the heart is never approved of by the Lord.

Perry is a young wife while Rasband is a marital veteran of 52 years.

Perry advised women to forgive their husbands quickly, seek inspiration for their individual situations and limit the competition for their time and connection.

Rasband said husbands and wives are emotionally naked before one another and therefore more vulnerable to each other than to any other person.
