The experience of a married man, and the total lack of requirement to make any sort of commitment, lack of honour by both parties.
They are attracted because if they are single it's something they want. They want a man to be committed to them as well. It's more of a subcon thing of feeling protected. It's a natural feeling for a girl to feel that way especially if they don't have it.
Lust is the first and most powerful reason they do it. Second, they have no respect for themselves or the person they are trying to fool around with, nor themselves. Thirdly they do not care what happens to the guys marriage, nor his wife who loves him more than life itself. Thats it.
It's the all about "me" attitude. If she thinks the guy is hot or he is famous, rich, or powerful then she wants to be (a part of his life) if only for one night. Very few of these women believe they will "steal" the husband away from the wife. Many see being "the other woman" as having all the perks without having to deal with the mundane day to day crap in marriages (laundry, kids, bills, emotional ups/downs). When she's with the married man it's about experiencing a "romantic escape" . Some people say the other woman must have low self-esteem but I believe there are some who are just in it for the fun. I personally know of one man who left his wife to be with the mistress and when he told her they could now be together openly she dumped him! Apparently she was happy with seeing him on a part-time basis and did not want the "full-time" job of being his mate.
Some mistresses of the super wealthy enjoy trips around the world, expensive gifts, having their bills paid, or having a condo/home provided. There are some instances where the husband has left money in his will to his mistress. Katharine Hepburn was Spencer Tracy's mistress for over 20 years! He also had other mistresses prior to her as well. The rich and famous men don't have to remove their wedding rings or lie about their marital status to get women to have sex with them or "date" them. These women come willingly and knowing up front how things are going to be. Some mistresses say since they haven't taken any "vows" then they aren't cheating or really doing anything wrong. They feel it's the man's responsibility to worry about his wife and family. Those things are none of "the other woman's" business. Naturally the wife disagrees!
What attracts women to married men is that it show the men can take it to the next level. It show he not afraid of committee. It show he is capable of being responsible.

Why do some women prefer being a mistress over being a wife?Traditionally it was believed that most women became mistresses by accident. The married man hid the fact that he was married and the woman discovered the truth after she was emotionally invested in him. Today it's not uncommon to hear...
