Hello, ladies. Welcome to another post!
Today I’d like to write a bit about the women our husbands cheat on us with. Despite the stereotype of other women being prettier, smarter, richer, or “better” in other ways than a man’s wife, it’s actually pretty common for OWs not to be the brightest, prettiest girls on the block. I have a couple of theories why this is, and I would be interested in hearing your perspective.
Overall, I think there are six reasons why the women our husbands cheat on us with don’t quite have their lives or themselves together.
**I know this is not true of everyone that is a mistress, tons of reasons why two people engage in extra-marital affairs; this is just my opinion of a portion of mistresses. I am also aware that some mistresses had no idea the man they were engaging with was married.
1. Our cheating husbands typically can’t find women of our caliber who would actually have an affair with a married man. The women our husbands cheat with are typically the ones who can’t find a man of their own and feel they have to resort to cheating.
2. Our husbands go for women who have low self-esteem like this because they think they will be too happy that they finally “have a man” to inquire about his married life.
3. Since the OW has low self-esteem, she can easily turn a blind eye to all the lies it takes to maintain an affair.
4. Typically, our cheating husbands are having an affair because they need to feel that they’ve “still got it” (whatever “it” is for them). So, typically, they go for someone younger so that they can still feel handsome, young, and strong. The OW’s looks have nothing to do with their choice, but her being younger gives them an ego boost.
5. Along with being younger, many of these women are also more immature than the wives these men are cheating on. After all, it’s more likely that an immature woman would go along with an affair, because she wouldn’t be thinking about how an affair will impact either her or the husband’s family.
6. Our husbands get into affairs with women who will actually believe all the hype and lies about the two of them “being together,” so they’ll put up with anything as long as this promise gets dangled in front of them. The truth is that while some husbands leave, when our husbands are caught, they choose to stay married and will dump the mistress, leaving the power in the wives hands to choose to stay or leave the marriage.
