10 reasons why may Women prefer married men

Given are 10 reasons why some Women prefer married men for love, marriage or sex.

1) He is a Challenge: Getting a married man signifies a triumph of one woman over another woman. What makes him the ultimate catch to her could be his experience, confidence and authority. He's a trophy catch. To have him, is about making the impossible. Many women like to grab what belongs to another woman. Jealousy or revenge can be some reasons why women go for already married men.

2) A Married Man has all the answers: Many women feel that a married man compared to a bachelor can meet her emotional or material needs in a better manner and have the answers to all her problems as he is more experienced in handling it.

3) Forbidden Fruit: The society is not very supportive of women who grab another woman’s man. A hooked and booked man is like a forbidden temptation which makes him irresistibly attractive to a woman. For many the food on someone else's plate always looks and tastes better than what they are having. It is the normal human tendency to crave for what you can't have. For some women having a married man at their beck and call increases self esteem.

4) No Strings: A Married Man is an ideal candidate for Women who are Career oriented and do not wish to get married but want sex. When you pick someone clearly unavailable, you never have to struggle with real commitment and its risks and vulnerabilities.

5) Married Men are good at Bed: Many women feel that married men with a lot of sexual experience are a better catch than a bachelor who may be inexperienced. For some a married man is someone with whom they can indulge in their fantasies and who could provide a great time.

6) Wild attraction: Some married men are irresistible and full of charm and love playing games. Many women find it difficult to resist the vibes send by such men.

7) Can’t find Eligible Single Men: Eligible single men are becoming scarce. One may be picking married men in order to beat the competition.

8) It may be Love: Love can happen to anyone. As the popular saying goes ‘love is blind’. And when someone is in love the fact that the object of love is already married is not going to matter much.

9) Mate Copying: Many women tend to believe that if another woman is either after a man or with a man, there must be something he possesses that's worthy of pursuit.

10) Addicted to Sex or Paid for: Some women just want it with whoever is providing it. They don’t care if the man is hooked, booked or unavailable for commitment.
