Are you married but have a cute coworker? Not only cute, but they’re also fun, easy to talk to, and carefree. Did I mention, cute? They’re so great that you’re starting to wonder if you married the wrong person.
There are a million more reasons, but here are 5 of the reasons that (you think) your cute coworker is better looking than your husband or wife.
#1 Your coworker isn’t crazy! Like your spouse is.
Correction: You don’t see their crazy. With your spouse you see it daily, right? I promise your coworker is just as crazy, but you just haven’t seen it. I’m crazy as well. But really only my wife and my kids have ever seen it. Everyone else sees my non-crazy side. Your cute coworker does the same thing. Trust me. They’re crazy!
#2 You don’t share a bank account with them.
I bet you forgot that part, didn’t you? Unlike your spouse, you don’t ever have to talk with your cute coworker about money. Only one of the single greatest sources of stress on a relationship. You don’t have to pay bills with them. You don’t have to ever ask for their permission. No wonder your conversations are so carefree. So lighthearted. Idea: Steal your cute coworker’s checkbook sometime and see if they’re still carefree. Okay, maybe don’t. That’s illegal.

#3 You don’t parent terrorists together.
It’s not a surprise that you have great, deep conversations with your coworker. Because unless it’s take-your-kid-to-work day, your kids aren’t with you. That means that unlike with your spouse, you can actually talk with your cute coworker for longer than 5 seconds without being interrupted, spit up on, or having to change a diaper. You can actually focus and have a full conversation. This changes things just a little huh? I mean, hand your coworker a crying baby with a dirty diaper and then try to talk with them about your day. Not so cute anymore, eh?
#4 They don’t have funky breath.
Another correction. My bad. They have bad breath, you’ve just never smelled it! They also probably snore and clip their toenails in the kitchen as well. Gross right? I know your cute coworker is actually quite gross. Unlike your spouse, everyday at work you only see the absolute best of your coworker.
#5 They make you so happy!
Reminder: You felt the same way about your current spouse when you first met them. Otherwise you wouldn’t have married them. The grass always seems greener elsewhere but it’s rarely true. You might disagree, but joy and true happiness is found in your current relationship. Leaving your spouse will only add more brokenness to your life. For yourself. Your spouse. Your kids. Your family.
If you pursue any further relationship with your cute coworker, I promise all of the things listed above will immediately become a reality with them.
Stop looking at your cute coworker. Start looking at your beautiful spouse.
#1 Stop looking at your cute coworker. Start looking at your beautiful spouse.
#2 Start talking, dating, and giving attention to your spouse.
#3 Love the person that you promised before God to love “until we are parted by death.”
#4 Thank God that your spouse is still with you. Because they probably have a cute coworker that is better looking.
**In case you missed it, your coworker isn’t better looking than your spouse.
(Note: This applies to your cute neighbor, cute person at the gym, and every other cute person in general.)
