The topic for "Shall We Dance" had kind of strayed into this area, so I'm starting a new thread for it . . . . It was mentioned in that thread that infidelity might have less to do with a physical act than it does with the creation of emotional connections outside of the marriage. And, further, that physical infidelity is often preceeded by this kind of emotional infidelity. If that's the case, how do we all get away with dancing? (Especially those of us, like myself, whose husbands/wives are NOT our primary dance partners?) I know I have a very strong emotional connection with my instructor, but it doesn't seem to be a problem, nor does it bother my husband (who also has a professional partner, who he has a very strong emotional connection with). So, my question to you would be, is dancing emotional infidelity? If it is, how do we get away with it? If it isn't, why does it differ from the other types of emotional connections that MIGHT be considered infidelity?
