Fear of commitment could be one reason, and a sick need to know that you can take something that belongs to someone else, could be another. The fact is, if a woman can get a married man to cheat on his wife, she deserves him, because he's no better than she is. The wife deserves something better than what she got.
I used to know a woman who liked married men. For her it was the conquest, that she could steal a man away from his wife. Once she had him the thrill was gone.<br />
She stole me away from a long-term girlfriend. I sold everything I owned and moved 2000 miles to marry her. She dumped me the moment I arrived. Thirty years ago, and I've never recovered from it.<br />
She committed suicide a few years ago.
Can I ask why she committed suicide?
If you know why that is.
I'm not sure. She had health problems, she couldn't find or keep a job tho she was a very intelligent college grad, she was obviously very mentally ill, and she was about 50 and no longer the blonde attractive Nordic wench she had been. Like me, she never did marry, and she ruined a lot of marriages.
All the perks and none of the responsibility
because since the Adam and Eve days, women are born to the earth with the enternal desire to want what they cant have ................
I've known a couple of women who do/did this. Its just some sort of attraction, in my opinion, of having 'someone else's man'. Some men also get a 'buzz' out of having 'someone else's woman' for sex. It also means that they are unlikely to have to make any kind of commitment, or end up washing his socks, etc
If they are knowingly dating married men they are making poor choices.
I am married and they are after respect and being treated like a princess
poor self esteem.
should never be a safe option.. but it's poor self esteem driving you into the arms of another married person because whatever it is that is lacking your marriage you can fix it. If you really try.
I would say that a woman who consistently gets involved with married men is addicted to bad choices. Possibly she doesn't want a situation where she might be asked to make a commitment.
They can't commit to a single man.
It might be more of a challenge, lack of esteem, or not worrying about commitment because they're already committed...
Bad married men sometimes!
