The Safe Affair

It’s epidemic! Spreading in bedrooms, board rooms, and hotel rooms across the universe. Seductive. Delectable. Delirious. With curves and cuddles in all the right places.

eHarmony and, you’ve got serious competition.

“I barely have time for my wife anymore,” men are whispering.

“It’s perfect because he does what I want when I want it,” women are bragging amongst themselves.

Surveys abound on the percentage of married couples who cheat. The Journal of Couple and Relationship Therapy reports that approximately 50% of married women and 60% of married men will have an extramarital affair at some time in their married life. Cheating statistics for unmarried couples are hard to come by, but we all know these trysts are happening, too.

Toss the statistics to the wind. Now there is the “Safe Affair”: the iPad.

Man + iPad = Utmost exhilaration; Woman + iPad = Pleasure perfected.

A touch with your fingertips, and ooooooooooh, aaaaaaaaaaaaah. Ask anyone who owns one or has used someone else’s. Most will agree, few things, if any, are better.

Giggles of joy are heard in odd places. Like in the famous scene in the movie Harry Met Sally, you look around to see who’s so lucky. It’s only one person…holding an iPad.

On one web site forum I found about iPad addiction, comments included, “I tried to figure out a way to bring it in the shower with me”; “I spend way too many hours with it”; “I can’t believe how magical it is. I love it so much”; “I can’t live without it.” How many people say these things about their significant other?

Get Along Better provides you relationship “tips” with a twist of humor.  Want more?  4,000+ years’ worth of advice from“real-life experts” are documented in Everlasting Matrimony: Pearls Of Wisdom From Couples Married 50 Years Or More, a coffee-table book by Sheryl Kurland.  Makes an excellent gift for weddings, anniversaries, engagements…or just because!

    That’s hilarious Sheryl… As you know, I don’t have an iPad or a significant other but I’ve heard so many people who are addicted to that one device so I can only imagine.

    Too funny when you think about it. Or maybe not if you’re married and would love some attention from your better half.

    Adrienne, yes, this article is obnoxiously true. It has become even moreso since the time I originally posted it. Technology definitely makes romantic relationships today a “threesome”!
