I just wrote a hub: What Motivates the Other Woman - the women who set out to pinch other womens' partners. It may be a bit controversial but it's a subject dear to many hearts: the wives whose lives are turned over by Other Women and the Other Women, who often become the New Wives. Oh, and the men who play GoBetween.
I've unwittingly been the 'other woman' before....one of 5 that man had going at the time, in fact. I rather naively had no idea either that he was taken, or that I needed to take a number.
How do people like that find the time, that's what I'd like to know!
Last year I was in the situation where I nearly became the other woman, but successfully held back. I'm so glad I did, too. I think being the other woman is a lose-lose situation. If he stays with his wife, he's had his cake and eaten it too, at your expense and his wife's. If he leaves his wife to be with you, it causes terrible upheaval to his family (particularly any children, who are innocent victims in the situation) and you are surely left with that icky feeling... "If he dumped his wife to be with me, then surely he can dump me any time, for the same reason."
Like I said, lose-lose.
What about another man in the woman's life? Hmm....? Just a thought.
It can apply both ways?
Its bad of the women , but the men have their choices and they make them on their own , so its not all just the women , dont get me wrong I dont get into that kind of stuff , wouldnt get involved , but the women are not totally to blame
I am the wife and will be his only wife and his only woman
I was the wife for 6 months. What can I say, I like candy bars.
Never been either. I could not cope being the other woman and I would not like my freedom taken away to become a wife!
I'm neither and hope to never be the other woman....My conscience would DESTROY me!
What motivates anyone? We respond to our feelings and while we do have the ability to control them, events or occurrences in our lives can cause us to drop our guard and let our feelings control us. Can anyone say they have never had feelings for someone other than their significant other? Can you honestly say an intimate thought never crossed your mind with someone other than your lover? All that has to happen is in a moment of stress in a relationship that feeling surfaces and reveals a chance at escape, am illusion of a path to a new beginning, a longing for a happiness, or a love that is for some reason missing at that moment. All that has to happen is to see that escape in ruby moist seductive lips, or a wicked smile by a woman who is suffering too in her relationship. The allure is strong and for the weak, impossible to resist!
If he cheats on his wife with you what makes you think he wont cheat on you with someone else? The craziest thing I ever heard is when a Mistress was shocked to learn that she wasn't the only "other woman". Really? I am neither a wife or other woman both are over-rated if you ask me However I've learned to never say never (to the wife part anyway).

When is a hug more than a hug between a man and a woman who is NOT his wife?If a man hugs a woman in front of his wife, where is the line that it has gone too far? The "hug" is fine. Does it cross the line with a kiss on the cheek? A kiss on the neck? Prolonged hugging?...

I recently wrote a hub on this. If you are a wife who suffered this, the Other Woman who broke up a marriage, or a husband who left a family - what do you think explains the interest of the OW in breaking up a family?

Why do men, (and SOME women) think cheating isn't a big deal?
