There is a very interesting trend I would like to share with you in the cheating world. One of the members of the site Susan pointed this trend out to me and she was spot on.
The trend is that more and more women are coming to me saying that their husband is cheating on them – not with the younger woman, not with the neighbor, but with……another married woman. The new ‘Other Woman’ is “A Married Woman’. The most common profile or story is one where the husband is cheating on the wife with a younger women. But more and more the stories are shifting towards married women sleeping with married women.
Here are a few of my random theories as to why this is happening so often.
First, we are constantly exposed to stories and images of affairs and infidelity through the media. Subconsciously, in seeing this on TV shows, print and online so often, it can make one feel ok to cheat (Olivia Pope’s doing it, so what’s the big deal if I sleep with a married man?). As a wife, over time you will start to feel a desire to have ‘more fun’ and get out of the daily routine. That desire can easily turn into lusting or wanting to have an affair, especially if you read or watch content that portrays cheating as fun.
Another reason for the rising trend of married women sleeping with married men is the increased mentality of a wife not wanting to get a divorce, but seeking more fulfillment. For a married women, a married man is the perfect solution because he doesn’t want to leave his family and get divorced either. They both have common goals, fulfillment and sexual diversity.
Last, but not least, technology has played a role. As a wife, you are busy with many responsibilities; having an affair can appear to be a daunting task. But now, with sites like Ashley Madison, with the click of a button, you can find a husband who is willing to fulfill your need for excitement outside of the marriage along with discretion.
I am in no way excusing the behavior. Lying to your spouse and cheating behind their back is wrong and a devastating experience. I am simply sharing some theories as to why this trend of “married women sleeping with married men” is growing. What do you think?
