Obviously, women aren’t responsible for how a man thinks about her, but we should be sensitive to our level of friendliness and the amount of time we spend chatting with another man.
As a new employee, I attended a company Christmas party with my husband.
During this time my marriage was in tip-top shape (as it could be).
I can’t even imagine what the outcome could have been if we’d been struggling!
Marriage is a symbol that the Bible calls a mystery because it represents the Christ and his bride (the church). Talking to a man isn’t evil, but it should be an area that we are constantly aware of.
I can’t even imagine how much Satan hates the marriage relationship because of that reason. We shouldn’t let our guard down with a man other than our husbands (and a select few others, like brothers and fathers). There is no hard and fast rule for how much communication with another man is too much.
Working with male presents a special set of problems because married women are expected to interact with everyone, no matter their gender. You spend long hours together and there is something genuinely exciting about completing a project as a team.
