FastThoughts.....I find it rather curious why a woman who would have an affair with a married man, is concerned about "rules." If this woman followed any rules of life or moral code, an affair would not exist.
However, by my observations as well as my interaction with women who have sought help & support with the emotional roller coaster of an affair, I can forewarn her of the expectations she could have:.
An inability to believe what he says to her (he's already proven himself a fraud)
She will never be able to expect him to keep a "promise."
Her self respect will begin to slowly break down
She'll need to adjust to taking a back seat to his family obligations.
A woman can also expect to hear empty promises with any number of excuses for why they were broken
She will know when he uses the word, "Love"....he really means, "Lust."
If her friends & co-workers discover her secret, she will lose respect & credibility.
She'll be missing out on opportunities to meet the wonderful, single man who may have been her Hero.
When he ends the affair, she can expect a long recovery from anger, disappointment, bitterness and regret.
She should expect to ultimately realize she was simply used for selfish motives and an ego boost.
She can expect to feel empty for a long time.
These are just a few of the many unpleasant expectations a woman can welcome into her life along with her married "cheater."
