Cheating From the Perspective of the "Other Woman"

Updated on November 1, 2016

The Cheating Husband's "Other Woman"

One of the most interesting aspects of an illicit affair is the perspective of the "other woman." Most of us have a hard time feeling pity for the woman who plays the role as the "other woman" in an affair. Many wives choose to blame her for the affair, rather than the unfaithful husband.

For example, in a recent interview Elizabeth Edwards spoke of the mistress of her husband, John Edwards, waiting in the wings to take what was hers. While it was obvious that Mrs. Edwards felt betrayed by her husband, she subtly attacked Ms. Hunter for being available. Of course, all of us as women want to put the blame on the other woman rather than the man we love, even if all trust has been broken and our hearts and lives have been betrayed.

What I have heard women say a few days after discovering that their husbands have been unfaithful reminds me much of siblings who fight among themselves, but will defend one another against everyone else.

We seldom hear the story from the point of view of the "other woman." Why did she become involved with a married man? What did she expect? What were the benefits of being his play partner?

What Most Attracted the Other Woman?

What attracts the other woman to a married man is as varied as the people who become involved in affairs. Some of the responses may surprise you.

  • He's married --- no attachments.
  • He has money.
  • He has power.
  • I love older men (even if they are married?)
  • He flirted with me and he's hot.
  • I did not intend to get involved. It was supposed to be a one time thing.
  • I wanted to have sex with him.
  • For the hell of it. I don't know his wife.
  • It was love at first sight. (or so she thought)

There are other reasons or excuses, including "I didn't know he was married." But, even when the unknowing discovered that her new flame was married, most continued the affair.

What Was the Bait?

According to most of the "other women" I have interviewed, the men treated them "special." One insisted that the married man treated her better than the average single man she would have dated. According to these women, a married man is more likely to treat them "like a princess".

In retrospect, many of the women stated that the man would take her to better restaurants, buy her gifts --- often very expensive if the men were older or financially sound --- and almost always try to fulfill her wishes, regardless of what she asked.  During the courting stage, according to these "other women" life could not have been better.

Most married men, by the time they decide to engage in a relationship outside the marriage, have become familiar with their wives at their best and at their worst. They have seen their wives with and without makeup. They have seen the bad and the good. Yet, with the "other women" the man has only seen the good. He has not been around her long enough to see the down side. And, there is always a down side.

The men have a tendency to consider the "other woman" as his fantasy woman. One of the women reported that her "keeper" (her word) had insisted on breast enhancements and collagen for her lips.  He demanded that she wear 5" heels with her jeans as well as her dresses.  And, she had to have her hair (drapes and carpet) dyed auburn. 

When they were going out, he would select what she would wear and occasionally suggest that she apply more makeup.  If she protested about too much makeup he would remind her that her job was to concentrate on making him happy. Of course, she had no distractions, such as kids or cooking dinner, when she was with the man. Her total effort was to keep him attracted to her and to make him happy.

Of course, over time the glamour fades. To quote Shakespeare, "Familiarity breeds contempt."

The Kiss is the Pitfall

Most prostitutes will tell you that they never kiss their "marks" or "johns" on the lips.  The kiss is the most intimate of emotional experiences. 

Prostitutes will engage in almost any sexual act with a man without any feeling of attachment.  However, a kiss is too personal and can lead to emotional attraction as well as physical attraction.

Unlike a prostitute who can keep the man at a distance by refusing to kiss him, the "other woman" is all to ready to share kisses.  This is the pitfall to the emotional detachment that most expect from a one night stand.

While most wives will ask their husbands, once the affair is discovered, about the sexual acts the husband and other woman shared, few will ask about kisses.  Yet, the shared kiss is the driving force behind the emotional attachment the husband has formed with his new lover.

What Makes the "Other Woman" Tick?

Of note, many of the women I interviewed had either been sexually abused as children or had low self-esteem for one reason or another. It must be noted that many girls who are sexually abused early in life become extremely promiscuous during their teenage years and as they mature. There is little value put on relationships with men and these women often show little respect for established family units. Sex is a tool of manipulation for these women to gain what they want or to fill a need that cannot be filled.

Men on the prowl are prime targets for these women as the women do not go into the affair asking for or expecting (in many cases) an ongoing relationship.

The Life of the Mistress

I have been lucky enough to interview three women who were actually mistresses or kept women for at least five years, some longer.  And, I have had the opportunity to talk openly with and question women who were involved with married men for short, yet destructive affairs.  Of the three who were involved in "kept" relationships with married men, the men were all rather wealthy and older.

Each of these women told stories that were very similar. The affair started as a dinner with an older man. Other dinners followed. The older man often took the younger woman to museums or to other places as a way of introducing her to culture. In this role, the man was a father figure and a teacher.

The man would purchase expensive gifts, eventually offering to "keep" the woman, renting an apartment or in one case buying a house for the woman.

The excitement of the forbidden fruit lasted between three and six months following setting up house. Sooner or later, the women were seen at less than their best. The men began to be too comfortable with the women, showing signs of taking them for granted.

One woman stated that she realized six months into the relationship that she had sold herself into slavery. She was "on call" twenty-four hours a day. According to this particular woman, all her friendships and other relationships suffered once she became a kept woman. On more than one occasion when she would have a night planned with friends, "he would show up and what could I do? He paid the bills."

Holidays, particularly Christmases and birthdays, became almost unbearable according to two of the women. One would spend days and weeks decorating for Christmas, only to spend it alone.

The other said she would dress for dinner on her birthday, expecting and having been promised a big night out, only to spend the evening alone looking at the clock on the wall. "If he arrived at all, it would be close to midnight. I would want dinner. He would want sex. Since he was paying the bills, it was sex."

After seeing and interviewing these women for almost a year each, I can only say that the early benefits --- the gifts, the flirtations, the trips and even the apartment or house --- lost their appeal within a year. These women were lonely, depressed, possessed no self-esteem, and as one stated, "I have no savings. He dies and what happens to me?"

How Did It End for the "Other Woman"?

Of all the "other women" I interviewed, only one had married the man she lured away from his wife. The marriage lasted less than two years. She caught him cheating on her and kicked him out.

Some of the others were still "waiting for him to leave his wife." One was waiting for "his kids to graduate college." Of course, she had waited for them to graduate high school. I bet she is hoping they do not go to graduate school!

One "other woman" had been dumped by her lover after six years of being his mistress. He had forced her to move out of the house he had bought for her to live in. When I first met her she was a recovering alcoholic. She said she never drank before they met. He introduced her to wine. On nights when he would not show up, she would drink the entire bottle by herself. Eventually she began drinking with breakfast. It became a problem the man could not handle in addition to lying to his wife and paying two mortgages. He ended the relationship and gave her enough money to return to her hometown.

Not one story had a happy ending. Some were not quite willing to throw in the towel and give up. And, a few stories had not only unhappy endings but tragic endings. The saddest part of all the stories is that all the women were intellectually smart and emotionally scarred.

When asked, "What would you tell someone thinking about going out with a married man?" each of the women I interviewed would tell any other woman to not take the first step, to never go out with a married man.

One suggested that "we all want to do what we want to do.  We just do not realize the consequences for ourselves, the men, and the worst part is for their kids.  If I were his wife, I would have killed me."

      In my experience with cheaters i guess i was just being ignorant, but i knew she was cheating but i respect her a lot and i was really careful what i said cos i didn't want to make her think i was thinking lowly of her until I knew what was on with proof, i contacted Hacknet 107 at gmail dot com after I read a revive on an online platform like here and he provided a loop in her phone without me having to access her phone physically, i got to see her heartbreaking extra marital acts and its been really disgusting, from whatsapp to skype and even her call logs and more.I'm glad i'm not the fool i used to be after i showed her so much love

      Is there a masters program for ethical hacking?

      Take a step ahead of time, how do your subconscious mind feel about this, what feelings does it portray to you?

      You should know you can have and make a positive live and relationship when you get all grudges out and set your mind free for real. which is very much abstract than living in the guilt or sadness of a particular aspect of your own life.

      Wow. You sound like a jaded wife. Comparing the other woman to prostitutes, saying she’s only with him for gifts, has issues, and the kicker- she lured that dumb, innocent, sweet husband away? Give me a break! Men don’t just cheat unless they are narcissists. Why are the only marriage vows that matter “foresaking all others?” What happened to love, honor, and cherish? Why are all wives victims? Life isn’t black and white like you paint it to be.

      My brother should’ve cheated on his wife and maybe he could’ve gotten divorced sooner. There’s so many women who play nice and sweet until after the honeymoon. Then they turn into neglectful, cruel creatures. They marry these men to get them to financially support them and that’s it. Most of these guys that get stuck are nice men for a little while. Sometimes it takes another woman to come along and give them the strength to leave after being beaten down by their emotionally cruel wives.

      Also, the man who cheats is the one responsible not the woman he tells that he loves, wants to spend his life with, and begs her to please just wait a little bit while he sorts it out. Get off your high horses.

      doubtless, some women do set out to be mistresses, probably because they do not want a full-time relationship or because they do not want the tiresome responsible bits of a full-time situation. No, I do not have much pity for them either, if they want that sort of relationship they should engage with the polyamorous or tantra communities out there, where everyone knows the score.

      However, many mistresses are simply the victims of men that tell them a pack of lies. My ex-husband left myself and our 10-month-old child for his mistress. Whilst they were having their affair, she phoned one day and I picked up. I asked her to stay away from my husband as she was breaking our family up. Her reaction was how dare I tell her what to do. She made out that I was the reason he was having an affair. At that point in time, his computer was under surveillance, so I knew exactly what lies he was telling her, but obviously, I could not tell her exactly what I knew. I just said I do not know what lies he has been telling you, but he is married to me and we have a child. She said what I said was harassment and that she would complain to the police, I told her to be my guest, as she was the one phoning my home and having an affair with my husband the police would probably think her an exceptionally stupid tart.

      Just over a month later my ex-husband walked out to be with the other woman. It did not work out with her, she did not want him. He came back on the pretext of collecting some of his stuff and then he started to say he wanted to try again. There was no way I was having him back, he was not happy with this and tried to run me over. I am well out of it.

      The funny thing is, that after I kicked him to the kerb, the mistress phoned to ask me to take him back, to stop him pestering her. I told her that there was no way I was taking back that lying, cheating, scumbag and as she had been only too keen to be his mistress she would have to deal with the consequences of her own behaviour.

      I know that he told her a pack of lies. While it was horrible at the time and it is difficult bringing up a child alone, in a way she has done me a favour in getting this scumbag out of my life. Since then the police have informed me that he has served time for his behaviour towards his new wife and family So altogether a lucky escape for me courtesy of the other woman.

      The other woman will be naive enough to accept the guys lies, pity her. There just might be some unexpected karma coming their way!

      Just reading the comments am i see one person has the balls to say no one thinks of the other woman as a victim!

      BULLSHIT! Ive been with a man for over 2 years, he is the love of my life. Ive recently found out that for a few months he was seeing another woman. She started talking to him, he fed into it.

      Do I think of her as a victim? Fuck no! This is a woman that walked herself into my life and started fucking around with a man she knew was in a relationship! Did she even think of his home, family, me when she started talking to him? Fuck no!

      Did she probably laugh at me? Probably

      The other woman/man is not a victim. Amd there are no accidents when it comes to cheating.

      You did it! You mean to do it! You gave no care for the person at home cooking, cleaning, taking care of your kids, cooking you food and sleeping in your bed!

      It is said that most of the people even donot want to consider the fact that there are times that such 'other women' also falls as a victim. Who had been put upon with false hope with the guy, who had been lied too and who had no intention of stealing other womens men, but they are made to realise that the guy is soon going to end the relationship and is just looking for the "right" time. It is sad that the other women is always considered as a slut rather than a women who had been tricked by the guy as well.

      Cheaters never win!

      On August 10th 2017, I received a phone call from a woman who said she had been seeing my now ex for a two months.

      She knew all about me and didn’t care.

      I told her she could have him; she said she doesn’t want him either. (LIES)

      My ex stalked me at work and home and called me constantly, eventually we decided to work it out.

      This must have infuriated the woman and she cursed me to no end. Calling me all kinds of b*tches.

      She was upset because we were trying to work it out.

      She continued calling my phone, so I changed my number.

      She tried to get back into his life by coming to visit and telling him she had cancer.

      Who would turn away a dying woman?

      I decided to end the relationship after trying with him and not feeling the same towards him. I tried but I could no longer trust him.

      The woman died in January 2018.

      I had to ask God to forgive me because I, at first, didn’t care.

      I did feel bad, and hope her miserable soul rests in peace.

      He went to the funeral.

      We are no longer together, so in a way she got her wish to break us up.

      I have been blessed to meet a really nice man and we have dated since November 2017.

      My ex is miserable.

      You reap what you sow.

      I completely blame my ex husband for the two affairs that destroyed our 24 year marriage and family! He disgusts me as both affairs took place inside our marital bed, GROSSE! He even bragged about no protection and allowed my 9 year old son at the time to tell me! Good riddance LOSER!

      A. I never lured a man away from his wife. I didn't try to contact him at all when he was staying with her. He showed up on my doorstep after she kicked him out and said he was bothered I didn't try. I told him I have more self respect than that and don't help men be cheaters

      B. He never bought me expensive gifts or treated me like a princess.

      C. He wasn't older

      D. I wasn't his mistress, a fling, a friend's with benefits or etc. I told him I didn't do stuff like that because it's beneath me.

      E. I didn't think Id win him at the end because I don't compete in relationships.

      F. We were both separated. I don't date married men.

      I'm married to the love of my life.....He broke my heart and continues to d so. Yes it is hard sitting back and just letting it happen. For awhile I had no idea it was happening. Not until he got sloppy. There has been 3 women maybe more to have been at my door. For another woman to come to my home , it messed with my security and sense of peace. One woman had no idea my husband was married and the other 2 women was well aware he is married. Its sad, both women to this day do not care that he is married. I was at work when i saw on the camera this crazy woman was knocking at my door while I was at work. Yes I am torn, she obviously has had bad relationships, why make mine worse? She told me she doesn't care and she will continue to screw my husband. My husband has always denied it. I have found so much evidence..and not because i looked...its because he has gotten lazy and left things laying around.. and he comes home late nearly every day. On his days off he is never at home for the entire day. I guess I wanted to hold on to something that I need to let go. I am and will forever be a great catch. I ask for nothing and need nothing from him...obviously they need him... Both women( the ones I know about) have nothing, and both are barely making it....He refuses to leave the home, knowing he is wrong and has done me wrong. We have a great life! No bills, kids are all grown up and thriving...we can go on trips without thinking about the cost. All I can say is I love him and I am getting stronger every day as I move through this drama. I am hurt beyond hurt. How can he? How can they? Why did he? I was mad at the women because they knew about me and still didn't care about me. Why should they? I always felt that people had a conscious about hurting others, but some don't and I truly thought my husband wanted Me or just Us. Well he did this to our marriage, not those women. He could have walked away from them, but he chose not to. I am walking away, I have been walking away, slowly but surely trying to get my peace back....I'm walking away.....I have to. If I don't walk away he will forever have the power to hurt me. I have to love me more and respect Me more...someone has to do the right thing. On this day, I pledge to always love me first. I decided I am leaving and leaving for good.

      name is Daxster i will like us to share tips on how to identify a


      spell caster cos alot of people have fallen victim of scam as i

      have come

      across lots of comments lately (i was a victim too) and from

      experience and

      what i know i decide to open this thread, only fake spell casters

      ask for

      the followings:

      COURIER CHARGES: no matter where you are in the world, no

      matter the

      distance and continent a real spell caster will cast a spell


      without you seeing it or the spell caster getting it to you to use it


      long as he has the names or pix..the spell will work itself..

      STRAIGHT: no excuses for failure, if money was needed in the

      first place

      for courier he should have say so, so one can know how

      prepared he is..i

      did rather pay $2000 at once to get my result rather than paying

      $200 for

      excuses to get more money..its not bad paying for items but the

      end result

      might be an excuse

      THREAT: if you get fed up of sending money after money, they

      begin to

      threaten one with death and madness..

      NIGERIA; about 80% of them are nigerians not saying they dont

      have real

      spell casters cos they are spiritually gifted in africa but the

      impersonation is too much, the fake are more than the real..

      i fell a victim of scam twice to a certain dr wodu and dr isaka

      they but

      ripped me to shred before i realised almost $3700 was gone until

      i came

      across dr YASIN who told me how to know a fake spell caster, he

      helped me

      get my ex back without failure or excuse in 5 days..we are back

      and happy

      now for about a month..his e-mail is


      lets beware of scammers and share experience, suggestion and

      Some Johns decide to keep their prostitutes with the promise to pay and shower them with enough to keep them from seeking others for money. Prostitutes and kept women are basically looking for the same things. What, then, is the difference between the two? They both perform for money. Isn't a kept woman, or mistress, a full-time prostitute?

      my case is rather complicated. Am 35, divorced with 2kids and met this man 6 mths ago who 1st said he was separaated from his wife, on further enquiry he told me he had another lady who bore him 2 kids but married her according to traditional rites. apparently it was this that brought his real marriage to an end. we started dating and earlier on he gave the impression that he was no more in love with the lady he married traditionally but wanted me to be his mistress. he lives alone after his separation from his wife and gave a house to the other lady so he visits occassionaly thereby giving me full access to his home. he doesn't hide me from anyone, am known by his friends, family and associates. we live in different towns but he wants me to be in his house all the time without conssideration for my business. he also wants me to be exclusive with him even though he still goes to me the other lady and spends the night leaving me all alone in his house. I do nott feel any remorse for being with him and do not give any consideration to the lady that ruiined his marriage or even want to accept that she is his wife. what I feel for him also is not so much love like that but a way to get back to that lady that ruined his marriage and now wants to take the position of a wife. it hurts me that she could do that especially for the fact that she worked very closely with the couple before resigning to start being the man's mistress to the point of having children aand ruining a marriage of 20years with 3 children.

      there is no doubt this man loves me, but I am not sure to what extent he can go with me, he keeps going baack and forth, speaks bad of the current wife today, behaves another way tomorrow, use her kids as excuse to keep going to meet her, he wants me to be his wife today, tomorrow marriage does not appeal to him bla bla blam he cant seem to make up his mind while ensuring am for him alone by checking me up every hour,wanting me to be with him 24 7 etc.

      I do not know what to do, he has not made any moves to start divorce with his separated wife, d 2nd one that ruined his marriage is also hanging on to him, where does that leave me? am thinking of making myself less available to him, dating other men and just keep my options open.

      Arrange your relationships so that you cannot be cheated on and cannot cheat. Agree that each of you are autonomous from the start. Don't try to "own" the other. Stay together because you want to stay together, not because your ego or religious superstition (usually both are one) demand monogamy. If you can't be cheated on, you have one less thing in life to worry about and people like Levertis' friend don't need to be SHOT!

      Such are the stupid things we do to each other and ourselves!

      You are making excuses for the other woman's offenses. Unless she is an idiot, she knows right from wrong. It is admirable to forgive the husband and the other woman, but who is going to relax and try to figure out if she is a good or bad adulterer? If the OW does not know that the man is married, that is understandable, but most of them do know and many prefer a married man. Keep reading their testimonies.

      Jetta said, "None the less- the fact still remains- that the man did make a promise and that promise is HIS to uphold. Not mine. "

      She is right, but she is not wise. You do not have to promise a wife that you will not mate with her husband. There is no law against decency, morality. It is a law of life to do the right thing. Does a man have a right to rape your sister or child if he has not made a promise of decency to her or him? According to your rationale, he does.

      I had a co-worker who made the mistake of seeing a committed man. She was beautiful, had recently gotten a degree, about to begin the career of her dreams, had a son in college, and a whole promising life ahead of herself. She refused to let go of the husband and lost her life because of it. The wife was wrong to shoot her, but she is dead. The wife went to prison, but the girlfriend is dead. The husband SOON got another woman, but his wife is in PRISON, and his soon forgotten girlfriend is DEAD. This is about a selfish man and two women who were fighting over trash and lost everything.

      My point to Jetta's statement is that a person does not have to make a vow to anyone to be obligated to do the right thing. We all owe it to our fellows to not tresspass against them or covet their spouses. It is only decent and right. You did not promise the sheriff of Green county that you would obey speed laws, but, if you are a bad-butt, truck through Green County, Alabama playing the part of a speeding fool and see what happens.

      I found out I was pregnant just after two week of breakup with my bf. Immediately I knew I had to have an abortion. There was no way I was ready to have a child, by my self without my boyfriend, and I wasn't strong enough to go through an abortion because i love my bf more than words can say. I had to tell him about it but he rfuse to accept and say why must it be after the breakup. I know I want my lover back but how? Because i cant go through this pregnancy alone. From the moment I seek for spiritual help online then I found a woman who do spell her Priestess Ifaa, People were talking good about her on reuniting issues, I contacted her with her email, I never really have an idea how this things work but she sounds so real and straight forward. She gave me hope that in 3days i would have my bf back to carter for me and love me even more than i ever expected., I gave her what she requested for and Just as she said, 3days later my bf come back asking for forgiveness and pleading that if i dont accept him he would commit suicide. Priestess Ifaa is more than a spell caster. The moment when a woman needs to do what's best for herself even if it's hard for her, and I'm proud to say I did that we are married now with our child.

      Am Petra residing in Greece, Hi to everyone reading this appreciation message to a spell caster that restore my home by bringing my husband who moved out because he said i could not give him a child. I didn't blame him anyway and there was no way for me to prove him wrong. i would cry all day and night till i saw comments on a spell caster in about how he helped a woman to bring back her husband.

      I was a little bit relief when he told me he can clean my tears and turn them to joy having my husband hoe and also been able to give birth.

      Hasten ordered for the spell he made mention of.

      What surprises me is that my husband came back home 6days after he has done the spell and at that very night we had fun in bed and in less than 2weeks i was pregnant. the spell caster bring light to my darkness.

      I gave birth to a son never, he's 2yrs old now. I give thanks to that spell caster that changed my sad story to unlimited joy every morning and night.

      The is the height of spell casting.

      Don't waste your time going in search for nothing else.

Not only did your Stop Divorce love spell work super fast but you and your circle was there to help me and counsel me through every step of the process. You have helped me so much and I am happy to update you on our progress. Jordan and I have reconciled and have since renewed our vows. We are stronger than ever. I am so happy that you were able to help me keep my family intact. Without you I am not sure what I would have done.

      Dearest helptemple

      With my heart and soul I thank you. You have given me the strength to perform the work that was making me emotionally, psychologically and physically ill. I have yet to finish but I am thankful I have made progress. People came into my life to help me. They helped with my bills, my mental well being so that I was able to make good decisions. Today I received the highest rating at my job even though last year was the most horrible year of my life. I have never been rated lower than far exceeded during my entire career and I thought for sure it would happen this year. With that comes a lot of responsibility and I hope I do not fail as times are still tough and sometimes still feel sad and helpless. I wished that I could feel like a women and a person again. To be able make good decisions and get through this paperwork. Any help financially I would be extremely grateful. If it was more than I needed than I would do good with it. I have been provided with all that I prayed for.

      I am extremely grateful to you and all that you do. You are very gifted and I will never forget you. I am also grateful for the Blessed Mother, Jesus, God and St. Anthony whom I also pray to.

      I hope that my journey in this life continues with a clear mind and an open heart and soul so that I can do good for my children and this world.

      Again I thank you and send to you all that is can as will email him

      I came to this Strong Healer a week ago after hearing his Miracles over the radio, my husband asked to pack out of the house with my kids and go because he wasn’t interested in me anymore. He said all the abusive words and said am not a good wife because I wasn’t working, instead I was wasting his money. I consulted this strong man for spell, crying not knowing what to do. he told me that he will cast a return lover spell that same day. It didn’t take time for my husband to call me apologizing and begging me to come home. The tender that he was waiting for was approved and started telling me that am a good wife so I must forgive him for the bad things he had said. My husband asked me to look for any University of my choice and will take care of my fees. Am thanking for the Faith and Trust he showed me

      I was with someone for 10 whole years - (since high school). The plan was the after graduating we would get married and we were madly in love.

      Anyhow, my now ex is indian and was taken abroad 18 months ago and whilst there forced into a marriage - his dad was dying and he was also beaten (confirmed by our friends)

      We stopped talking once I learnt that he had gotten married. He contacted me 6 months later saying he had been forced and I told him I forgave him etc. he said that he was getting divorced as he hadn't gone near the wife and stayed true to me - I told him that if he felt she was someone he could like he should at least try, but if not then he needed to get out of there fast - he told me he HAD, and whether I would consider marrying him.

      I agreed - I was so happy! The plan then was to wait a few years till his divorce became old news in his community before reintroducing me and I understood this and the need for keeping it quiet.

      A month ago, 5 days before our 10th anniversary I rang him only to have a girl answer with you b**** - confused, I asked who she was and why she was shouting at me - she was his wife who he had NOT divorced, who had a BABY with, and who was calling me a whore...

      I've read your article. I deserve all the hate I can get. Can I just say though had I known for one second he had stayed married and was happy I'd not have gone near him despite the fact that he was actually my partner first.

      I don't have any anger towards him or her - she did not know just like me, and she has a child as well.

      I just wish I could die, because since the age of 14 I have been dreaming of forever with this man..... I was the one he was with for 10 years. I can't believe I am an OW.

      Our culture does a lot of arranged marriages. Some forced. I do not condone cheating, and if I had known for one minute he had not left his wife, I would never have taken him back.

      I hate the fact I have been branded a whore by his wife. I kept quiet on the phone when she was calling me all sorts of names and screaming at me that he doesn't love me, he loves her etc. The more she talked the more I realised the extent of the lies. I knew then he was married and had a baby...

      I guess I could have told her the truth, that I'd been in his life 8 years before she came in it, and I had been told he was divorced. I kept quiet because I didn't want to add any further pain or damage. I know my honour was taken from me, and this was the only way I could walk away with my head high. I apologised to her and put the phone down.

      To all the ladies calling the OW whores, maybe its true. But some women really have no idea, and by the time they do, they have been so emotionally abused they don't know what's what anymore. Lucky I have so many amazing friends that have helped me get through this....

      Poor Guy!! It must be tough no sex no touching no cooking and no divorce! He certainly has portrayed his life as a victim of abuse!

      He can walk away unless she has him tied down

      I think if I were you I would try to verify this terrible life he has!

      I have a very hard time believing him. Most married men say they are not getting sex and that no one cares about them. They need to get your sympathy

      If you are as cool as you say I would stay very far away from a man like this. For him to describe sex with her is pretty sick.

      Do yourself a favor and find someone you can trust

      "One should go to their spouse first to work things out or ask for a divorce." He tried both. She would not see a marriage counselor and she would not give him a divorce.

      "the Other woman who wants to find love and for whatever reason (has to be somewhat desperate or low self esteem)finds a married man attractive enough to carry out an affair" Actually, I think I'm pretty cool. I was attracted because I'd never been nearly as compatible with any other man.

      "she lost her right to him" Marriage is a partnership. When one member of a partnership defaults, that person loses their partnership rights. The other should be able to get out of it. He couldn't.

      For the first THIRTY-FIVE years of his marriage he did not cheat. He not only helped raise the kids, he coached their sports teams, did most of the cooking and some of the housework.

      " 'he didn't like sex'. I have never met a woman who doesn't like sex !" OK, what would you call it when she refused to have intercourse more than once per week, always did it in the dark, with her eyes squeezed tight, and when they were done ran immediately to the bathroom to wash? She never touched him below the neck, not with her mouth nor with her hands. The woman would have been happier as a nun, as she admitted, but once she was married, that was no longer possible.

      LIFE sucks!!

      Just living is a roller coaster. There will always be pain, in some form or another. Life just happens

      When a marriage is in trouble, yes, as in all marriages, when there are are problems, many suffer. But, is that any different than when children are part of a family that has other issues, as most do. I think not.

      Men and women marry for so many different reasons. Young love is very romantic, full of unrealistic ideals. Life happens, CHANGE IS THE LAW OF LIFE! People change. There will always be pain. Many women would rather stay with a cheating husband, than live alone. Many women, like the OW, would rather have a small part of a man, if she loves him, than nothing at all.

      Live and let live. Look at yourself. Are you perfect? No one is. Not everyone have the same values or religion. Everyone has to make the decision that is right for herself. Life is full of pain, coming at us from all sides. We are all searching for happiness.

      For those of you with high moral values, and religion, seek your comfort there.

      These posts are really sad

      On one hand you have a woman who married the man she loved. They both made promises to each other No one held a gun to either ones head no matter what their age One day he breaks the promise and cheats.

      There is no excuse for cheating. One should go to their spouse first to work things out or ask for a divorce.

      On the other hand there is the Other woman who wants to find love and for whatever reason (has to be somewhat desperate or low self esteem)finds a married man attractive enough to carry out an affair For whatever reason she seems to think its ok. as some OW posted "she lost her right to him"

      Or "she didn't like leisure activities" ( really? Sounds like she may have had all the work with the care of the children since hubby was busy having affair) or "she didn't look good enough" hmm how many gorgeous women have been cheated on ? I especially like the post "she didn't like sex". I have never met a woman who doesn't like sex ! Whatever eases the conscience

      The man has created a total mess for his family with all of his lies. He really is a scumbag not worthy of his wife's love the truly injured party here is the wife

      In the end if he goes to the OW all she gets is a man who cheats on his wife. If he stays with the wife all she gets is a man who cheated on her.

      Both women have lost but the wife in my opinion didn't take part in any of it and she is forever punished

      Very sad !

      OW back off !

      Men resect your vows or leave before you cheat

      We women are so judgemental towards other women! We think we know how they feel, and why they do what they do. We feel they should feel and see the world in exactly the way that we do. We think they should share our morals, religion and other values. We feel that it is their duty to know that our man is off limits, and under no circumstances should this " other " woman become involved with our man. After all, he is MINE!! How unrealistic!

      This is especially true in the way we see the " Other Woman ".

      There are so many " types " ( for want of a better word ) of " other women ".

      A woman can become " The Other Woman " for so many different reasons. Some are despicable, but others are just being human! That's right, Ladies. There are many decent, normal, loving women who are " the other women".

      It is time we stop seeing all these women as whores, sluts, Jezebels etc.

      They are not responsible for your man's actions. And, no one ever died and left them responsible for your happiness.

      The other woman may not realize that the money and gifts she gets from the cheater is payment for her services. So, she is not only a sex slave, but also a private prostitute. She also does not know that she is a cheater, too. She cheats another woman just like the husband does. She cheats his children, if he has young ones, especially. What should be important to her is that she cheats herself drastically. She can be a better woman than that because she is worth more than the status of "the other woman" or "mistress". No matter how the media glamorizes that status, it is shameful in the eyes of decency and righteousness. Once a woman gets the reputation of mistress, she receives a label and is distrusted by many single and married women, even her female relatives. Her upstanding girlfriends start drifting away, and she ends up with women friends like herself.

      Many women look at a wealthy cheating man as a candy man and often use him for that purpose. Most rich cheaters think that they are in the driver's seat, but that is not always true with the cunning, experienced women of the world. When these men discover that they have been suckers, they often try to scandalize, beat, and in some cased, kill the women. Their egos get very bruised when they discover that they have been taken for a ride. Some relent, and just walk away without trying to get revenge. Still, some lick their wounds, stay in their cages for a while, and soon go back on the prowl. This type loves the hunt even if it means losing. Sadly to say, this is the prime target for a candy man.

      If I were simple enough to cheat, and if the man was rich, I would not settle for less than riches for myself. I would also have as much fun as possible before my fall. At least I would be a rich, unhappy fool.

      Sadly, experience sometimes is the only teacher when careless people insist on thinking with certain body parts. Once many years ago while I was yet single, an old married man asked me to be his girlfriend. He said that he loved and respected his wife who was bedridden, but he had lots of money and only wanted to see me twice a week. I told him that I could not stoop to the level of adultry and such a relationship, even if he were young. That was not good enough for me. I thanked God for helping me to listen to the echoes of my mother's teaching.

      Many mistresses or girlfriends do not realize that they are submitting to a form of sex slavery. The money and other rewards blurr their vision and make them believe that they mean love. To begin with, if a married man truly loved the other woman, he would tearfully walk away the way the good men do in the decent romance books. Sometimes, true love means letting go when it is the best alternative. Holding on to fire has often resulted in tragedy for many cheating husbands, wives, and the other women. Many times men's mistresses and wives' boyfriends have killed their lovers' spouses in order to pave a way to marriage to them. When it is discovered, it is too late for the cheaters to break off the affair. Even sadder, many cheaters are married to their chosen and may never know that the second spouse killed the first who was probably the cheater's preferred. Cold cases are real. When we view a TV program titles, "I Married My Husband's Killer," we express shock at the details. We shouldn't. Some obsessed people do not have limits.

      My names is heather from Australia, the reason i am writing this testimony is because i made a promised that who so ever help me out of my shit and predicament deserves to be known by the world. Am 24 years of age my boyfriend left me some months ago that am a piece of old cargo that there is nothing on earth that can bring our paths together as long as he breaths. i felt really bad because i loved him so dearly' one day i came across some testimonies of this priest called Lord kalifat so i decided to give him a chance. but when he told me things so personal which i knew was so secret that was only known to me then i gave him a chance out of my doubting spirit but to my greatest surprise my boyfriend called me five days later that he is so sorry for all the pains he has made me pass through. presently our love is more than that of romeo and Juliet lol. he takes good care of me now 100% than before.

      thank you so much Lord kalifat, here is the email address that turn my pains, sadness and sorrow into joy:

      1. The man is at fault 100% he made a vow to his wife

      2. The woman he is cheating with is never to be revealed that makes her a whore he has on the side (just like any other bad action is hidden drugs etc)

      3. If a man doesn't want to be married to his wife there is something called divorce so he is free to "date" anyone and leave his wife to marry this OW

      4. If a man really loved this OW he would leave his wife no matter what A man or woman that cheats thinks only of them self therefore they would think nothing of leaving if they really wanted to leave

      WOW! How some women love to call the "other woman" a whore". And other names!

      These women must have been so hurt by a cheating husband. They need to lash out and they have to resort to name calling! How sad!

      They should vent their anger at the MAN! Not the other woman. They are so afraid of the truth, that they have a failed relationship. That their "man" did not love/respect/care for them enough to stay faithful. It is so easy to vent anger at the other woman! These women somehow believe that all other women owe them something. Just SAD!!!

      The other woman is nothing but a whore or unpaid prostitute.

      I also think you catskillwoman are delusional believing he is unhappy with his wife. He made the selfish step to cheat so do you think he is making an "unselfish" decision to stay with her. He probably came to the realization one day he is going to be old and the memories he wants are real ones family not sneaking around with a whore.

      Because that is the whole relationship with the other woman ...hiding hoping no one sees.

      And the comment about wife doesn't like sex is hysterical. I'm sure he is going back to his wife and a sexless marriage!

      Other women if you are so wonderful why aren't you his "wife"

      Face reality other women you are nothing but a whore I feel very sorry for you

      I've been both--ow and the wife. I was unaware I was the ow the first time. Didn't find out until I got knocked up. He didn't leave his wife for me. I thought this was my boyfriend. I was so caught up with this man I wanted God to take him from the wife and give him to me. I realized later it wouldn't make my life better to want to marry a cheater. They divorced and now he's alone. I ended up in a fwb relationship to find out this one was taken, too! They were separated but got back together while I was still seeing him. After 2 1/2 years of emotional toture and embarassment on myself and for allowing myself to wreck a home, I called it off. We are friends since we worked together but has not had any sexual encounters since I got engaged with my husband. Now after one year of being married to my husband, we are separated. He been sexting with a coworker. Now I am getting back what I did to someone else's wife. It happened so sudden I didn't see it coming. I cared that I was hurting someone marriage. I just let my feelings get in the way. Now I am crazy crying to God praying for the return of my husband whom I love dearly. I understand the ow perspective as well the wife. Pray for me.

      Happy Relationships are NOT about compromise although much of what's been mentioned is generally correct about the reasons for either men or women to cheat. Every body says compromise is what makes a relationship work and yet so many relationships fall apart anyhow and what do the angry individuals say when it falls apart? " I sacrificed everything for you " blah blah , the compromise idea is what leads to the breakdown in a relationship ,it's philosophically flawed and I'd go as far to say it's a feature of the relationship cycle . Compromise is not the word u are looking for ,I know many many people who get into relationships purely because of how hot the other person looks .after a long enough period of time one of the two ppl relises they either have nothing in common ( which is the start of where your compromise idea comes from ). Me and my gf have been "compromising " for years and its just led to misery .shes tried doing things ,going places with me that I'm interested in that she clearly isn't and those days out sucked because deep down I knew she wasn't into it and the same goes for when I tried pleasing her . The truth is,human beings are freaking control freaks end of story and it's because we can't respect each others freedom to seek our own private personal happiness that love always dies eventually .u can snap back at me if u want but I've lived selflessly for 12 years and the resentment and hatred I feel is killing my spirit ,the right thing I suppose would to be for me to leave but then I would probably loose my daughter who I wanted to raise in a stable happy family . U want to know why men lie ,cheat? And continue to lie and cheat ? Yes some are purely whim worshippers who don't even think but I tried to be the "ideal" boyfriend all through this relationship ,I still havnt cheated but I'm cracking up in frustration . I now have massive social anxiety because I can't be me . It's funny that when I entered my 1st relationship I actually rationalized (even in the early blissfull days) that the chances of this relationship lasting were incredibly slim but I would respect my partners need to find what makes her happy . Her jelousy crippled me and yet when she attempted to make me jelous by falsely claiming she had slept with someone I actually did not display any feelings of jelousy or hate and that made her more angry ,infact part of me was turned on even. I think it's all one big cruel joke to be honest , I mean come on ,did you know the number 1 fantasy for both men & women is a threesome ? That's right someone else outside the official partnership getting involved .the human race is an insecure ,oppressive bunch of hypocrites who never can see beyond the fucking moment .do your research on the origins of marriage and you'll discover it was a concept originated by oppressive men that gave us more rights than women ,including the right to have as many partners (or a limited number of partners ) while they were demonized for doing the same . When marriage became strictly limited to the persons with in the official partnership the trick back fired on men who can not express or describe what they feel in their ball & chain bondage because morality says if they desire anyone else they are guilty as charged . it's not primarilly about sex either , people change .... Peoples interests etc , and human beings' minds do not neccasarily develop together with the same interest . I've been attracted to girls outside the official partnership who I've shared mutual interests with (not primarilly sexual ) and I'm always made to feel guilty or anxiety later on because I'm suppose to petend I only have eyes for one individual . U know what our idea of love is about ? It's about giving another human being a monopoly ownership over your mind ,emotions etc and like wise you have the same monopoly privilege over them . It leads to misery trust me,but sadly most ppl simply break up and repeat the cycle again with out thinking too much about it . Ask yourself , if you could be immortal , if you could never die , would u be able to stay sane ,stuck with another soul for ever and ever ,that you must feel nothing for anyone else !? Bullshit . I believe families are workable that even marriage can be workable but not by the oppressive conventional means that are ridiculous . Love is about self interest ,not selflessness . "for better or worse till death do us part ?" that's the code of an abused woman (or man) in a relationship who Dosnt have the strength to say no more .

      Wouldn't it just be amazing if all the woman of the world actually stopped being the OW and wives just left unfaithful husbands? Men might take note!

      I can hope woman will realize that they deserve more. Hey we just about having eradicated racism....I can only pray. The pain and devastation for all involved is horrendous and as humans we should not knowingly hurt another.

      My story is unusual. I've been faithful to my husband of 11 years. I was a little flirty toward flirty people in my early 20's, for a couple months. About that same time, I was raped by a guy w/ gf, and strung along once or twice (long story) til I had the guts to say no/stay away. I also gave a bj to a guy w/ gf once. And I fooled around w/ a married girlfriend (lesbian sex) once. Finally, my first encounter was fooling around (no sex) w/ a guy who was separated and they were both seeing others/lived apart (I knew for a fact). I've been hit on by married and taken men quite a few times and I turned them all down.

      I judge noone and love all. I completely understand how affairs can happen and I believe it's part of being human. I don't appreciate people who intentionally hurt others, though. I also don't appreciate women who hate the OW and don't seem intelligent/strong enough to look at the bigger picture nor are they willing to see how men AND women are only human and can be prone to powerful hormones and other forces/desires/etc.

      I quickly got over my brief past (I also dated quite a few single men before/during and after my brief learning experiences) and developed rock solid boundaries. I also saved myself for my husband for 2 years prior to marriage. I'm very committed to never cheating and never being involved with anyone taken, for multiple reasons. I'm very proud of who I've become and don't hate myself one iota for my past. It made me the stronger person I am today.

      That said, I must explain I also have a problem with severe obsessive thinking. I tend to develop guilt complexes for no reason, all in the name of fearing rejection from others. I've never been one to have many female friends. I am shy, sweet, open, honest, smart, and logical. I have a different mindset than most women I know. I'm not a jealous/competitive/catty/judging/hateful type at all. I have 2 kids.

      When we moved to a new state 7 years ago (AZ to OR), a catty neighbor rudely dug for dirt on me, i blushed and she spread false rumors. I tried to defend myself by explaining my small past but quickly learned that women are CRUEL. They are simply cruel. They will judge you and hate you over hearsay, over something small that's none of their business (something from 15 years ago). I don't know if Oregon women are worse than others, but I do know that Oregon is a very moral place (opposite of Arizona).

      I find myself doubting my goodness because all the other moms here have turned against me and act like I should be stoned to death for my small, unintentional past 15 years ago.

      I never said i was perfect. I never expect anyone to be. The unwritten rules women set are unattainable for everyone. I consider myself to be a damn good moral person. That's why I never was with a married man nor willingly had sex w/ a taken guy. But even if I had or was, I would NEVER consider myself less of a human being or eternally unforgiveable or worthy of eternal ostracization and cruelty. I really don't like women. Are there any human, kind women in Oregon? Or in the world for that matter?

      I chose to start a relationship with a married man - for many of the reasons listed - it was love at first sight, etc. Ultimately, he wanted to lean on me emotionally without ever giving anything. He always said he would never leave her - I never even asked him to. But as I finally became able to read the handwriting on the wall, I decided that ending it was best for both of us. I sent her the infamous anonymous letter. And it felt SO. DAMNED. GOOD.

      Let's remember ladies that while we are mad at the other woman and the other woman is mad at the wife, it is the man who decided to make a choice and go outside the marriage. Regardless, so many people get hurt in these situations including, often time, the children. This is one of the saddest realities. Most women who are married to a man who is cheating often times suspect this, know this and may even confront him to no avail. Respect yourselves women, set your boundaries and do what you need to do to have a fulfilling life. YOu may think you can't leave a relationship that you had with someone so deceitful, but YOU can and you don't have to have the resources (i.e..finances) in order to do it. Have faith in yourself and in a greater being because I have done this and I am proof that there are brighter days to come...

      Women are always asking " Why do men cheat?". Or, Why did my man/husband/boyfriend .. cheat? After all we had together/ after all I did for him/ after all I put up with etc! My husband cheated with women from his office, women I knew and socialized with. I never let these women know I knew. I blamed only him, for putting me in that embarassing and humiliating position. For not loving and caring enough for me to have respect for me. He did what HE wanted to do. So, one day, I told him that I had had enough, and that I was leaving. And I left after 7 years of marriage. The fact that we did not have any children made it easier for me, than those women with kids, who have faced infidelity.

      In the end, I have realised that this life is just a journey and we can only, at best, try to control our own behaviour. Nothing is forever, no matter how much we want to believe that any man " owes " us fidelity, till death do us part. That notion is just a fantasy which becomes a reality for very few people.

      In the end, we just have to be realistic. Many many times, men show us exactly who they are. We just wish to believe otherwise, or think we can change them.

      We have never been able to do that, and we never will.

      I am the wife and to be honest I have no intentions of ever meeting the other woman. He lives with her now and I hold both accountable. Whether she knew it or not when they met she knew it eventually and still chose to have him stay in her home. I don't wish her harm and I certainly would help her if she were on the side of the road but it ends at that. I am in a great deal of pain over this and one of the previous post is correct when they said that my husband and other woman are self centered, self oriented and selfish. They do not live in a glass bubble and other peoples feelings are involved. I loved my husband beyond measure and stood by him through more than I care to share and I look at her and think if this man can throw his marriage away like yesterdays garbage after his wife stood by his side through prison drugs and alcohol for 8 years then what will he do to her? There is nothing I can do for her and she will reap what she sows but so will he. I love him but at what point do you just let go and hold your head up and keep moving forward. I never let myself go, always strive to grow and be a better person and I really was a good wife (according to many around us so this isn't me patting myself on the back). All I know is we don't control others and though I am heart broken now I trust God to be my defense and to heal my broken heart and life!.

      It is always sad to see how so many women are so vehemently hateful towards the " other woman ". I assume these are women who are so insecure with themselves, and afraid that their " man " is cheating, or has already cheated .. or will cheat ..that they will lash out hatefully at the " other woman ", as a way of dealing with their own fear and insecurity and lack of self-esteem. Where does it say , or written that the other woman is supposed to look out for you, or made promises to you? It is always sad if a family is broken up, or hurt in any way, because of a man's infildelity, especially if young children are in the picture. But, that does not mean that it is the other woman's fault. Look, you insecure women, if it is not another woman, it can be pornography, strip clubs, prostitutes, etc etc. If a man wants to "cheat", he WILL!!! Whatever his reason is.

      From the begining of time, this has been the case, in all cultures. Most women would probably die of shock if they really knew what their man really does, or wants to do.. All women hope that their man will be faithful, but, the idea of monogamy is man-made.. and very difficult for men to abide by... So, you women out there, who hate the "other woman" can only hope to find a man who can live by, and keep his vows to you!! Unlikely.. but.. keep hoping..

      Every "other woman" are just plain disgusting. You deserve every bad thing thrown at you. You sluts are nothing but low self esteem immature whores that don't respect anything.

      I hope you guys understand that you're just getting used.

      It's also disgusting that the guys cheat as well, of course.

      Not all guys cheat on their wife/girlfriend because they are having problems, but simply because they are f***ing stupid.

      Simple, and yet, one of the most difficult subjects. In the end, the other woman are just rebound girls that get used. Rot .

      I completely agree with you catskillwoman. There is ALWAYS a reason people cheat...when I was in my marriage I cheated for 3 years. My husband is now my ex-husband and to this day he has no idea. If I didn't cheat I would have been MISERABLE. On paper it looked so wrong to cheat, but my husband cheated on me with drugs and alcohol and rather than try to change the inevitable...after 6 months of flirtation I crossed over to the dark-side. The man I cheated with was also married. I never expected him to leave his wife for me and he never expected me to leave my husband for him. We had an understand and a respect for each other and it worked VERY well. I never felt guilt or shame...I saw it as a necessary evil. Eventually my husband cheated on me. Our marriage was ending by that time and I actually understood why he cheated...I did not give him what he needed in the marriage just as he hadn't given me what I needed. To this day he thinks we are divorced because he cheated on me...hahaha...if he only knew!

      Honestly...I know it seems awful, but if the cheater and "other woman" are on the same page and have an one will get hurt, because no one will find out. It is not the greatest way to live, but sometimes it is what works for the moment.

      Like I said in my last post...I was the other woman for a man whose wife found out. I have had not had contact since this time it would not have the benefits that I looked for. He got caught, people got hurt, and that isn't my problem.

      People cheat for a reason and typically the person that is being cheated on has a lot to do with it...marriages don't work if BOTH people don't want to work on it...eventually someone will cross over to the dark-side sometimes though it is just a matter of who does it first.

      This article did not fairly describe the other woman's point of view. I was an "other woman" and no gold-digger. We loved each other, and if his wife had been more mentally stable he would have left her. He got to the point of moving out and getting his own apartment, but felt so guilty he left me and went back to her. Is he happy now? No, I made him a lot happier - but she needed him more than I did, so I'm glad he went back to her. But please, let's remember that marriage is a two-way street, and both sides must make compromises in order for it to work. Not every cheater is a scumbag; some are just desperately unhappy. Sometimes, the wife or husband bears some of the responsibility. My guy married too young, realized his mistake soon, but by then she was pregnant with their first child. He stuck with her till the kids were grown and out of the house. She knew he was unhappy but (aside from the mental instability that she could not help) did not try to compromise. She hated sex but never went for therapy about it. My lover had an unusually strong sex drive and was very sensual - and therefore very frustrated, and had been for decades. We also connected on a mental and emotional level that he did not with his wife. We did leisure activities together; they did not, because she did not want to. I know how supportive he was of her, but she did not give him equal support. Was he wrong to cheat? Should he have left before finding another woman to be with? Maybe. He was too scared of being alone to do so. Was I wrong to cheat with him? I don't think so. I know that she didn't even try to make compromises to make him a little happier, so I figure she gave up her right to him. Sometimes the cheated-upon husbands and wives need to look at themselves and ask, did I contribute to making this happen? Sometimes the answer is yes. I know another situation where the wife did that, and realized that she had contributed by becoming brain-dead once her children were born. She remade herself, for her own sake. Her husband now blesses her for being kind enough to take him back, and she's a lot happier with herself too.

      ( I accidentaly ended my previous comment, before completely finishing. I will now continue. )

      To continue, I was trying to say that we women have a hard time, after marriage, especially as men are so different. They " compartmentalize" many aspects of life, and it is not really their fault. How could it be? Statistically, most men do.

      They see the whole world as their love, while women see their man and family as their whole life. Very, very few people are lucky to find that special "Soulmate" we are all looking for. Some married couples can stay together, even in a sexless marriage, because they value other aspects of their relationship more than sex. And that is fine for them.

      Some men seek an emotional connection, when it is absent at home.

      The sad truth is that when a man is no longer physically attracted to his wife, for whatever reason,and if there is no emotional connection, he can easily stray.

      Women stay with their man, no matter if he has a pot belly, or is bald etc.. Mostly, anyway.

      So, who is this " Other Woman "?

      I started by saying that I have been the other woman for 31 years.

      We had been together for 2 years, when she met him at a function, which I had not attended. This was on an Island. We were both in the middle of our respective divorces, and living abroad, on this Island, working in the same Company. We were from different Continents. We were soon to be married, when our divorces were finalised. She came into his life, with her fame and fortune. A multi millionare. Of course he "left" me. But, he knew I was very much in love with him.

      His wife does not know about me. She was too wealthy and famous to know, or be interested if any other woman existed.

      It is hard to believe we still stayed in a relationship all these years. We have now lived on different Continents all this time, but have met up very often, in different countries, all these years.

      I found out soon after they met that something must have been missing in his new relationship.

      He seemed to have found out soon after they met that she was not a " warm" person.. she was " cold" in bed.

      She is a nice person, spends all her time doing Charity work, attending Galas etc.. I truly believes he loves her, but as a great friend or companion. I could tell, after all these years, when we are together, that he sometimes just wants to someone to hold close. Many times it is not about sex. So, I also came to the conclusion, our relationship is very much an emotional connection for him.

      Why have I continued seeing him, all these years?

      Because I love him. I don't know why. How do you explain it?

      Many marriages end, and many times it has nothing to do with " another woman ".

      I am tired of all the " Cliches" :

      " find yourself your own man"

      " you are worth more that that"

      " you should think of the wife"

      " have you no decency"

      " you have no morals"

      and all the rest of all the moral, judgemental tirades.

      I do not know how much longer we will continue seeing each other.

      However, I guess I am trying to say that LIFE HAPPENS!!

      It just does. Human behaviour is hard to explain.

      Just think about it... How difficult it is for us to control our own behaviour.. How much to eat, how much to exercise.. how to stop procastinating, when to finish this or that project .. etc etc.

      So, why do we think we can control, or judge others.

      in the end, we can't.

      Stop blaming the other woman.

      The ' Other Woman " is not always as many wives imagine. I have been the other woman for over 31 years. Yes, over 31 years.

      But, not everything in life is black and white.

      I was married once, and my husband cheated. I NEVER, and would never have blamed another woman for a man's behaviour. I think most wives would rather blame the other woman, because it is easier to do, than to have a real hard look at their marriage, on all levels.

      Only as I have gotten older have I finally accepted that men are so different from women, in so many respects.

      Women, after marriage, how many of us think that because we have that ring, we "OWN" this man!

      There is the saying about men and women:

      "When men marry, they think their wife will never change, and when women marry, they can't wait to start changing their man".

      Men think their wife will always be young, pretty, and desirable. Women think thet will be able to change a man to be their's completely. Both men and women are wrong. Women lose their beauty, some faster than others. Men may change on the surface, at least for a while. But sooner or later, their old "self" reappears!

      We try to control him, we nag him, we embarrass him. Our children become our main focus. We neglect to at least try to stay pretty and attractive . After all, let's not pretend ladies, men are visual creatures, whether we believe it or not, whether we want to believe it or not. It is a hard cold fact. That's how they were created. How " God" made them. It is difficult to cope with as the years roll by, as we women get older, and we struggle to stay attractive to men.

      I am the "other woman" to 2 men currently. One of the men I have no sexual relationship with. He wants his wife to ask him for the divorce AND he says he wants to leave with his head held high. He thinks he is not cheating...I think he is. The second man I have great sex appeal is a guy I wouldn't imagine I would be with in a million years, but things happen, and we happened. I started going to counseling, because I don't understand why I attract married men or why I am OK with it. I think I know the least the answer for me. I was in a terrible marriage with an addict...not only did he cheat on me with drugs/alcohol, but he then cheated on me with another woman. I was numb to the cheating as I knew inevitably our marriage was over. None the less...seeing the emails, texts, hurts NO matter what. I am a single mom of 2 young kids. I seem to have it together and I seem to me a strong and independent young woman. I think with married men I have no commitment and I don't have to introduce my kids to them and risk all the hurt again. I just don't understand how someone (me) that was so adamently against cheating can do it so naturally and without a care in the world...who am I? What have I begun. Recently, one of the wives found out (the one I am sexually involved with). I have now avoided all texts/calls from the married man as there is too much baggage now. Unlike some of the "other woman" I honestly want no relationship with either one of these men. I just want the emotional and sexual satisfaction that fits my lifestyle. It's wrong, I know it...but it works. Hopefully one day I will find a guy the right way and recognize what I deserve...especially for the sake of my children. Let's not forget although the other woman makes a critical choice...she really is only thinking about her needs (as is the attached man). Everyone needs to be happy but there is a right way about going about it....I wish I could follow my own advice :(

      Thanks to everyone who has posted on here. I an an "ex" dumbarse wife , who did fully trust her husband. This was until I received an annoymous letter ( later it became known it was from the OW herself acting to be a concerned friend) revealing the affair of six months. I am now at the point where I realise the OW did me a favor. If it wasn't her, my husband would have found someone else to cheat with, and I may never have found out. Still the OW has to live with the fact she is the type of person that will sleep with a married man. And that's not cool. And I have to say in this case she was a "dumbarse" too as he obviously fed her the line " my wife and i aren't happy, we aren't sleeping together etc " when in fact he was playing happy families and happy married man with me. Finally though, despite it all I don't believe all men are cheaters, not all wifes are dumbarses and not all OW are cold hearted - just human. But it's how you face up to the truth when it finally comes out that shows your true character. PEACE.

      I am just ending my relationship with a married man. Although I never intended on anything happening when we first met, the chemistry attraction became too strong and he provided missing piece in my life. For the first time ever, I had someone help me financially and as a struggling lone parent with no family support it made a big difference to my life.

      I am going to be strong and finish it, I am determined, have told him not to contact me as thats the only way to stop contact. A lot of what i read on the posts is we are going to break up the marriage, that is not always the case, i have children myself and i have not in any way wanted him to break up. I think the men are in fault, they are seifish, they want their egos rubbed by having 2 woman.

      Any way, we have argued and he is hot and then cold, i started thinking he was cheating on me as i became ill and definitely was not all glammed up when he saw me. He would forget to ring me, be all over me one day and cold the next, we never went out as he said his business wasn't doing to well. I couldn't introduce him to my friends as i was too embarassed, i didn't want to be seen with him as he wasn't my man.

      Every ones ecperiences are different but I would say dont do it, you cannot make plans, go on holidays, you get dropped whenever he has family ties. What is the point? I will never get involved with a married man. I started to resent him having 2 women and he had the audacity to tell me I wasn't allowed a partner when im single.

      At first, he treated me to jobs round my home, take outs, meals out. Now, i get nothing as he says hes struggling. Think, they are cheating on their wives to be with you, when they tire of you or you get demanding, what makes you think they won't cheat on you.

      Above all else, why let them use you? Don't let them. If they are serious about you they will do the right thing and divorce before any relationship with you.

      A married man can never give you what you need, he is only half a man. Get some respect and build up your self esteem. It really hurts to have sex with a man and he leaves to go home to his wife. Do you want that?

      I have decided I am taking time out and am going to socialise with friends. I certainly will never date a married man, I deserve more.

      Finally, some men lie and say they are single when they are married, so it is not ALWAYS the other woman's fault!

      Hey! Please dont be too judgemental.These are also human relationships. And that too of love... not hate. Most of the times they are not stepped into intentionally or created. They happen.

      And please pity the other woman.. Its usually she who loves the man who more often than not just uses her to add a spark to his pathetic life but does not have the guts to stand by his actions if the need arose.

      Yes.. for her actions, she does get what she deserves doesn't she? She does get used. She does get dumped and she does get the much deserved hearbreak doesn't she? Whatever the personal situation in which she fell for the married man.

      I too am the other woman. I met my married man at a training program of our company. It was sexual from the very beginning. He was very overt. I was very lonely and responded. Though I am married & in my forties with one marriage behind me, I can safely say that it was the first time that I experienced how it should be between a man & a woman. Sex with this man, 6 years younger, was such that it connected me to him mind, body & soul. He felt the same too. It was as if we were only meant to be with each other and life like a cruel joke let us meet only when it was too late. What started as a casual crush turned into an emotional bonding & attachment deep enough to give us undescribable pain. Because he's committed to his overweight housewive & daughter & I to my husband and 2 kids.

      I tried making a complete break several times but he would not let me, saying he needed me desperately. Since we are very long distance and theres not much opportunity for meeting often, he wanted to keep it as a platonic friendship. We also fought too often because of the frustation due to the physical separation. But he wants me to be in his life in forever. For me its too painful to have him in any other way than as a lover because I feel he's mine body & soul. I love him madly. He's my soul mate, my husband, and I won't except him in any other form. If I have to leave him as a lover, I have to make a clean break.

      I have broken off with him as of now. I threatened to call his wife if he calls or texts one more time. If he really cares for his wife, he won't call again. Though in my heart, I pray that he comes back to me.....

      I think most posters on here would be shocked at how many Ow are formally betrayed spouses. So the OW already knows what it is like.

      The reasons men cheat are just as varied as the women they cheat with.

      and yes, some do come from perfectly healthy marriages. It isn't about the marriage, it is about the man.

      But I have also seen men stray because their wives gain 200 lbs and don't have sex with them anymore, for years even. So basically the wife abandoned the marriage first. Funny how cheating seems to be the only sin in these situations.

      When you are no longer talking and no longer having sex, then the marriage ends. it is then just a contract on paper.

      One of the hardest things that betrayed spouses have to accept is their decline in the marriage.

      Cheating is the symptom honies, not the problem. The problem was there long before the OW came along.

      I am a mistress. My married boyfriend (MB) is very good to me. What I love about this arrangement is the freedom I get , there's no real commitment . I get only the best side of him. I don't have to wash his clothes, feed him, hear him complain and etc.... I don't nag him or act needy in anyway. I offer him the life he use to have with his wife. To be honest, it doesn't bother me one bit that he's married. In recent studies, more and more women have decided to be the other woman. After all most men cheat. I was cheated on 3 times during my last relationship with my kids father. I met my MB at my job, airline industry. He's a frequent flyer. It's been one year since we met. Our chemistry is amazing!!! Our sexual connection is even more amazing!!! I have no intentions of letting him go. I don't want him to leave his wife. I love it the way it is. When we makes plans and he is unable to get away from his wife, I don't flip out or get emotionally f up. I simply rap it up, and go to plan B. A true mistress is independent and always knows her married boyfriend can't always fullfill his promises. Always remember, he has a mistress not only for emotionally or sexually purposes , but to get away from his so familiar stressful lifestyle. I'm I doing something wrong by dating a married man? Of course I am. There is no right about this, however , it's a choice. I chose this lifestyle. I am content with it. I don't want a live in boyfriend , been there done it! Don't want it! My MB is the best thing that's happened to me. I've told him not to leave his wife or he will lose me . I know there will be alot if negative comments followed by this. However , before you judge, especially if you are the wife being cheated on, hearing a mistress side is a helpful tip to why your husband is cheating on you.

      I think the other women on posting on this site are deluding themselves. First of all, the married man is at fault 100%. But the other woman is also at fault. Married men should be off limits, period. I dont care what the man says, or does, he is married. if they are going through a divorce, then wait till its final. If he is having marital issues then he needs to work those out. But as a woman if you get involved with a married man you deserve all the heartache you get!! You go into that with your eyes wide open. You know he has commitments. I was a wife, and yes on some level i knew what was going on, but did not want to believe it. When i found out i gave him the choice, leave and be with her. I would not keep his kids from him, and i would make it as easy as i could, after all, i was married at that point for over 20 years, and by keeping the kids away from him, or making it ugly i was not hurting anyone but the kids. If he was no longer in love with me, then why make him stay, but he choose to stay with me. The other woman could not accept that. and has chosen to try to make our lives miserable. But all she has done is strengthen my marriage, and made him see what kind of person she really is. So the man is at fault, and so is the other woman, the only person in that trinagle that is completely innocent, is the wife, she did not break her vows. He did, and he could not break his vows if there were not women out there to let them. So other women, respect yourself enough to know that 99% of the time, you are just a thing, a fling and it will end, and not well. they will either go back to their wives and fix what was broken or they will leave their wives, but not for you. My husband told the other woman it was over, and that even if the marriage was over he would not leave me for her.

      I guess my story is a bit different. I met my married man over 7 years ago. We were co-workers, there was an initial attraction until I saw his wedding band. I looked away. Then our job placed us in an environment that had us spending more time than normal together. Lets call this place...Iraq. There were sparks, mainly flirting...a lot of curiosity on my part. I remember asking why me...but what I meant to ask was why me to cheat with. Trust...I do not carry myself as desparate, lonely, low self esteem.

      Anyway, we ended what didn't really start as I distanced myself from the situation due to lack of interest in this type of relationship.

      Fast forward years later or jobs brought us back together in the same environment. He initiated the contact again, this time, I am older (40) and some may say not wiser...but very bored. To be honest, I dont have the time to look for new relationships and I am bored...and there he is. Unlike many of these women, I dont want him as a future spouse. I am intrigued by him. He is very interesting and I enjoy studying him as a person. No tears, no lasting desires...

      Not every OW is looking for a relationship...just saying. Now, I was not raised to be like this...just over time I have realized that life is too short to miss out on experiences. Have I had sex yet? No, just sexual acts..which I am fine if it stays that way. I dont want gifts from him as then it would be like...a relationship.

      I have enjoyed reading this article and the conversation and advice afterwards. I'm the woman whose husband cheated and I confronted her as she was married as well. I asked her to look at the distruction this would cause. The affair ended and I stayed for 15 more years and ended the marriage after learning of another affair. She was young and wanted children, their affair didn't last long. I realized that it wasn't about me or what I wasn't doing or how I looked. I kept myself attractive and in shape. I was working full time and raising our two chidren and he felt neglected and looked elsewhere for comfort. I have two wonderful adult children and have gained the self confidence and strength to be alone if I choose. I was single for a long time and having been the wife of someone who cheated I would NEVER allow myself to stoop that low and be the OW. Where is the honor and respect for each others womanhood and marriage? I am remarried to a wonderful man and very happy. The OW's advice was to walk away from a married man's advances and I agree.

      My advice - protect your heart. What you think could be a simple conversation with a married man could turn into love and longing like you've never experienced. As soon as you develop feelings for this unavailable man, cut off the friendship, it takes nerves of steel, but do it. I wish I had protected my heart. I fell in love with a married man, ruined my own marriage ( instead of working to fix it, it was broken and I know it takes two, blah, blah, blah) anyway the pain of not being with the one you want ( or think you want) is awful and affects every part of your life, work, family, friendships.
