  • Don't, as everyone else has said. Him only going back for the kids is really irrelevant. He's married. MARRIED. Until he is DIVORCED, don't get involved at all. Physical or not. He won't respect you, no matter what he says. You will end up not feeling so good about yourself. His kids will probably end up resenting you because they will probably see you as the reason for his parents splitting up. If you are meant to be with him, he will divorce her, and come to you.

  • Don't do it... :) If he'll cheat on his spouse, he'll cheat on you.

  • I have never dated a married man. I have had friends who have. What I share is based on observing them and being there for them when the end happened.

    1) Do not expect more than what you actually see being given to you in terms of the relationship.
    2) Understand and accept that you are not his 1 and only. In order to stay sane, accept & understand that he has a wife and family. They will most likely always be 1st and foremost as long as he is married.
    3) Do not believe everything he says about his wife (who and what she is. how she treats him).You do not live with her, you have no true idea what she is really like, how she treats him, reacts to him.ect.ect One is never privy to what goes on behind closed doors, unless they are your doors.
    4) Do not believe everything and anything he says about his marriage or the state of his marriage See # 3 for reasons.
    5) Do not make someone a priority when you are just an option

  • Don't, even if he is "separated" he is still married and has baggage that needs to be taken care of before he involves himself in another relationship.

  • Put yourself in the "wife's" shoes.. who you like to find out your husband has been sleeping around? Would you like the pain of finding something like that out? They never leave their wives and like another lady said before he will do it to you.. there are more fish in the sea of love!
