  • I am happily married now, but when I was young, I was the "other woman" for about a year. He was a co-worker. He claimed his marriage was "arranged". He claimed he was unhappy and that I was his soulmate. He claimed he had dreams about me as a boy. I turned away for years, and then became weak . . . I started to believe his lines and lies . . . and my heart became involved. He told me that in his heart, he was I always swore I would never be "that" woman. I hate that. But, I got weak and worn down. I wound up having to push him away and quit my job. He was sooooo persistant, and my life was not going forward. He would cry to me every day.
    I left that job and all of the people that reminded me of him.
    I have terrible guilt about it.
    But, I also know now that men who cheat are very controlling, dishonest, and they are very good at what they do. They take every woman around them and suck the life and happiness out of them.

    Not a position I ever see me putting myself in at this stage of my life.

  • Because I am married and love my husband so much it is truly heartbreaking to think that some woman are knowingly "the other woman". I don't know how they could do that.

  • Yes I was the other woman BUT they were just dating & we were in highschool so its like that they had their marriage planned, kids, house...etc. She was in college (freshman 20) and he was a junior (17) We're the same age. I'm not saying what we did was right because cheating is never okay. Someone always gets hurts but I wouldn't change what we did. We both liked each other from freshman in highschool but we both started dating different people at the same time (10th grade). My relationship ended first. & he decided then he wasn't gonna let someelse catch me. He ended it right away with her after he knew I was interseted. 4 years later we are happy, we own a house, we have 2 beautiful children. I hate that she was hurt but she has admitted shes glad they broke up because she knew they weren't supposed to be together it was just convient because today she has her own family and is very happy.
