Ron: Online betrayal? That’s not really betrayal.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Hey, it’s quick, it’s easy, and the likelihood of getting caught is very low. So, why not escape boredom; explore the internet for pictures, videos, or live connections—no strings attached. A quick dopamine rush never hurt anybody. And besides, it’s the internet; it’s not really a betrayal.

Now if that’s what you’re thinking, you should know, it does hurt. Multiple studies report that internet infidelity is just as negative to partners as offline affairs. And second, if you have to hide it, it is a betrayal. Make choices that honor the ones you love. Protect your eyes, your desires, and your heart. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
