Why would a women knowingly have an affair with a married man, have his kids and think it's of for it to go on for years?

Why not find one that isn't attached and have a life instead of spending all her teen years sneaking around? And another long should it take to realize that he isn't leaving his wife for her?

Just curious after reading a few posts on here...

  • I think that a woman should NEVER have an affair with a knowingly married man. It is never good for anyone involved in the situation. But if it does happen, and the man keeps coming up with reasons as to not leave his wife, she needs to move on and quit trying to ruin a marriage and just realize she was a piece of booty gone wrong, lol.

  • Some women never learn. They think so lowly of themselves, they know he is neber going to leave, and they stay around anyway. Not only are they pathetic, they are homewreckers.

  • I'm sure they have their reasons.. Just like any other woman has their reasons for choosing to be in the relationship they are in. Those reasons always range from: love, security, attachment, need for something...etc.

    Maybe the question should be......

    Why would a MARRIED man choose to have an outside relationship that lasted for years and entailed having children?

    There would be no other woman, if some married man didn't want there to be one..

  • I do not understand it... I don't understand how women can fall for SO many things though - I may not be academically gifted but sure glad I have some common sense

  • I think women have affairs with married men for different reasons. Sometimes they don't know he's married until they are knee deep in love and some have the morals of an alley cat. Many times they do deceive themselves into thinking he will leave. Even if he does it seldom works well because they married a cheater. You just can't break all the rules and think everything will be okay.

  • Some women really think that he's gonna leave....they're hopelessly in love!

  • Are we talking about Beautythebeast? She's back? Oh what?

    If she knows he's married then she is a whore and a home wrecker and the married man isn't much better and both deserve each other and the wife of the married man is better off.
