Yes it’s true. I recently went to Holland for a conference and on the flight I watched the movie by Chris Rock, called “I think I love my wife”.
The basic premise of the movie was about a family man with a beautiful wife and great kids who was dissatisfied with his life. It was a boring. He allowed his mind to wander. The result was that he had all sorts of fantasies about women.
Then one day a fantasy walks into his life. She is available and beautiful and much of the movie is spent in watching him slowly take steps towards being unfaithful to his wife.
Near the end of the movie is a pivotal moment in his life when he realised where his fantasy had taken him. He sees himself in a mirror and runs from the compromising situation that he is in. He realises what the cost of living out his fantasy would mean in the lives of his wife and children.
He ran from that situation to his wife realising that love was more than the momentary pursuit of pleasure.
When I was away I missed my wife. I had left my best friend behind and I was the poorer for it. Returning to my family after even such a short absence made me realise how much I love my wife and to never forget what a precious gift I have been given.
