If You're Married Is It Healthy To Flirt With Others? From Dr. Gail Saltz (VIDEO)

When you're married, is it healthy to flirt with other people? Psychiatrist Dr. Gail Saltz says absolutely not! While it's natural to notice people who are attractive to you, and even to fantasize about them, Dr. Saltz explains that once you start acting on your attraction, you're crossing a line. People know when they're flirting, so if you find yourself in that place, be aware of it and put it an end to it. When you flirt, you send sexual energy to someone else, which takes away from the energy you send to your partner. It can also lead down the slippery slope of emotional cheating. Bottom line: Flirting is not good for your relationship.
