Do you agree?

I've seen and known a lot of people who who have been left for another woman. It is so suprising that these men don't leave their wives for better looking woman. some are the same, some are average and some not much to look at. I guess compatability and communication and respect is a big thing in relationships. I thought you just needed to be good looking for a man to want you. What do you think?

  • I do not agree that it is the grass greener thing all the time..Some men and women get married for the wrong reasons. They just might happen to meet someone while they are in the process of leaving their wife.

  • I think that men and women both leave their spouses for a variety of reasons I agree with abastille 100% but I do think that if your spouse leaves you for someone else as much as it hurts let them go it was not meant to be and they were not mature enif you for you

  • I don't believe that looks are what keep a relationship together. Looks are the initial chemistry that bring 2 people together. But as we age - it just isn't possible to stay looking the same. My dad married my mom at 23 and she was cute and petite. A year later, she gained over 50 lbs and continued to become obese. My father was always madly in love with her til the day she died (high blood pressure, strokes and diabetes at 68). I think in his mind's eye - she was always that cute girl he married.

  • i don't think your giving men enough credit here. they just want to be accepted and maybe their wife doesn't do that. so they turn to someone that does and thinks of them as the world. men love the attention and love knowing that they are truly accepted for who they are. sometimes you marry and you didn't pick wisely. both women and men leave cause they didn't make the right choice in who they married. if you choose wisely then you always find that person as the love of your life.

  • One of the reasons people fall for other people is because of the way they make them feel about themselves. That has nothing to do with looks. If the OW makes the guy feel like he's 10 feet tall, that's all the reason he needs.
