I thought about how many women had been in my position, waiting for a man to leave his wife.
As the lover you get the edited highlights of a marriage: the laughter, the smiles, the sex. But what we lacked was emotional closeness — that lovely sense of wasting time together and the accompanying feeling of certainty. And I’ve made myself a promise: in my next relationship, I want Sunday nights and Monday mornings together, and all the boring minutiae of daily life that couples take for granted.
When a married woman gets into an illicit affair, it is either because she is bored of / unhappy in her marriage or that she has given into temptation.
The rule says that while she may be a great sexual partner and be happy & joyous with you, she won't leave her husband for you.
It’s the fact that many married women know how to please themselves and the man that they are with.
Plus, I think there are not that many married women who are seeking a mostly sexual affair with a single man (which is what most of them turn out to be). The married woman who has an affair usually does it because she’s fallen for someone else, single or otherwise.For many men, there is just something about a married woman that is more attractive than anything else.Maybe it’s the way that so many of them seem to convey a sense of self esteem or confidence in themselves and their situation.No matter how sticky the situation, some men find themselves not only attracted to but in a relationship with a married woman.The reasons for this range from exciting ones such as lust and/or love to the downright unfortunate one - ignorance about her marital status.So today it’s the more rare circumstance — those few single men who have affairs with married women.
