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?
Well when someone fancies a shag, then that's it settled!
selfishness and desperation?
while i don't fit in any of your categories, i wouldn't chase after any married man, no matter how tempting. it's just bad form and there's a jillion attractive, unattached men out there, and besides i can't see the attraction to a man who would breach a loved one's trust that way.
Married men sometimes cheat on their wives at some time or other. The women involved are not braking any marriage. Marriage was already broken.
LOL I was going to write something along those lines - great minds, ya know - but then I thought - what about open relationship? Nothing gets broken in this case
Yes, but thats not a 'regular' marriage. and anyway, in those cases in the end they split. Jealousy plays an important part in it.
Umm, after 10 years together no signs of a coming split...
R U in an open relationship?for 10 years ? Well, it's the first I know of that lasted that much.
I agree ... the OW doesn't break up the marriage as the married man has the option of objecting her advances. If he says no, it never happens.
or just a complete disregard for another person's life and happiness.
either way, if the woman knows what she is getting in the middle of, its WRONG. wrong wrong.
and i've been on the broken-hearted, why-would-she-do-that-to-me-what-did-i-do-to-her end WAY too many times.
Sometimes she gets tired of running when he's been chasing her. My husband has never cheated on me but years a go when I was young and naive I was the other woman.
I knew he was married and pushed him away for a long time before I gave in. I'm not proud of what I did and promised myself I'd never do it again but don't always lay blame all on the other woman.
He told me his wife wouldn't give him sex. Remember, ladies, he will get it somewhere so if you tell him no don't think he's going to suddenly resort to celibacy.
The 'belief' that all the good ones are taken?
Only a married man is a worthwhile man?
Maybe it is just the female competitive streak... the ego trip of taking what is another womans?
I keep getting texts the last week off a girl who says shes engaged on her facebook, and I havent spoken to her for months, we went on 1 or 2 dates and snogged. I thought she knew I had a girlfriend..But you can see its not only men who cheat
The same thing that motivates the 'other man' to go after a married woman. Lust, power & excitement. Read about the aftermath of betrayal.....
What kills me is how the wife always blames the other woman - like she held a gun to the husband's head!
It could be alittle of all that has been talked about, but I think mostly it is the old saying that you always want what you cant have. It also has a safety issue of not having to worry about commiting, for he cannot commit to her if he is married.
What I do not understand is why any woman would consider taking up with a man who is cheating on his wife with her. If she ends up with him, would she not get cheated on eventually too?
Also, some women start dating a married man without knowing he's married. Happened to me. Believe it or not, some men will actually lie about this!
Sometimes marriages are made from hell. When two such people meet, decide to come together despite financial ruin for both of them from divorce settlements, it is really nobody's place to condemn.
Im sure it depends on the women. Maybe she has been abused by her father and is in search of an older father figure.
Maybe her life is quite boring right now, and she just needs a thrill.
Or, the husband chased her first, and she simply didn't say no.
It could be for so many reasons.
Either way, I'm so sorry!
i am attracted to older men because my dad died during my formative years but i won't pursue a married man. besides not all older men are married. a couple of times i found out they were married and i stopped it way before it got started. let them go get their cheap thrills someplace else.
those women not knowing aside, I think it's that women are the most competitive creatures on the planet! (not necessarily a bad thing)
I think all the sports and other competitions, business, etc pale in comparison to the competition for 'reproductive rights' to their designated male...

What are the rules and expectations of having an affair with a married man?You are obviously not first nor a priority. If you have been talking for a whole year. It took 6 months before any sexual interactions. He does not pressure, and he said I love you first.

As a Christian married man is it a sin to lust in my heart for my wife?On occasion I um pleasure myself thinking about her. I was wondering though. Am I committing a sin for lusting after her? It doesn't feel like it's wrong but I was wondering what my brothers and sisters in Christ might say.

Do you hesitate to date an older man that never married?Is an older bachelor someone to stay clear of if you are looking for a husband? Does this turn off women?

If you r having an affair with a married man for a little over a decade, then he decides to take...u 2 his marital house when wife is out of town & even makes love with you on his marital bed, could this mean he seriously loves you enough to take the risk or wants to make you a second wife...
