5 Reasons Why Women Date Married Men
(Why the Other Woman Won’t Let Go)
One of the hardest things for me to watch was the hype surrounding the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky affair. Although it didn’t surprise me that a married man would cheat on his wife, I was shocked over the fact that it was the president. He had so much to lose and this act was the ultimate slap in the face of his wife Hillary. However, after the dust settled, I began to think about Monica.
Why did Monica want to sleep with a married man? She was young, attractive and smart. Plus, it was obvious that she’d never steal the President of the United States away from his wife. So what was her true motivation? As a matter of fact, what is any woman’s motivation for dating a married man? After much thought, I think I have the answers.
In the movies, the other woman is typically depicted as a young, delusional being who just fell in love with the wrong person. The married man, of course, is the user. He’s the great deceiver who disregards his marital vows in the effort to fulfill his deep, sexual lust. Right?
Although these stereotypes are popular, the truth is that the other woman may have a variety of agendas fueling her behavior. Depending on her age, social class and marital status, she might be carousing with another woman’s man for several reasons other than love. Below are the top five.
#1 The sex is hot. Just like a lot of men, many women crave sex. As a result, when some women meet a man that they have an undeniable sexual attraction to, they rush forward and pounce. Although it’s not always admitted to, this is one reason why some women just can’t let a married man go. They love the sex and, as a result, refuse to end the relationship.
#2 She doesn’t think it’s hurting anyone. Have you ever heard the saying ‘what you don’t know won’t hurt you?’ This is a statement that some females who play the role of the other woman live by. They feel that as long as nobody knows (especially the wife) what they’re doing, it’s okay. As a result, this woman will never stop seeing the married man until things blow up.
