Youve all got me wondering...

I've been reading all the posts and I have a friend in a similar situation so I'm wondering WHY so many wives AND girlfriends stay with married men who lie to the both of them? Obviously the man thinks he can lie and get away with having multiple women.
I know my ex lied to me and I divorced him. He was lying about me and to me, and it was a huge mess. I got out and now he does it to his current wife, who is the woman he was cheating on me with.

I don't understand it, either. Mine was tossed on his ass out the door within five minutes of me finding the websites. That's how long it took for him to come home that night to gather his crap. I don't do anything with cheaters.

Because they are "in love" and believe he will change. Some are willing to settle. Not me.

As soon as I found out my ex cheated on me I kicked his ass out.

Low self-esteem.  That was the case for me staying with DD1's dad after knowing he cheated.  i didn't stay long, though.  I grew a pair..

Some women don't think they can do better Some women are too lazy to try to do better. Some women don't really like the men they are with all the much, anyway, and thus don't care enough.  Some women feel like it would make them a failure to just give up.. Many reasons.  None are really good.

Because they love their children more than they love themselves or because they don't have a place to go or because they're SAHMs who could not survive on their own or because they can't imagine their lives without their dhs...... or who knows what else. For sure each of them has her own reason. And for sure it's not a good idea to wonder so hard about someone else's choice or situation because God or fate or whatever you call it may give youthe chance to prove your standpoint by putting you in this same situation
