You might be surprised to know that around 15 percent of married women will have an affair. Around 45 million American women are quite possibly playing around behind their husbands back. If you are interested in a married woman then you may want to know the pros and cons of dating married women.
One thing that many men say about dating married women is that the sex is amazing. If a woman is looking to have an affair she isn't usually looking for romance or love, but is looking for good sex. If their married is suffering in the sex department then this is what they are most likely looking for and so it can be the best sex you will ever have.
I believe the 'secrecy' element of dating someone that is married also adds some spice and excitement to the relationship. Sneaking away for a weekend or just a quick meet up at a hotel during your lunchbreak, these are risky moments that will add a certain 'rush' to the relationship.
One advantage that many men find is the fact that the woman doesn't expect anything more from you. Because the relationship is mostly about sex and the woman is not in a position to get involved any more than that, then she isn't going to expect you to take things further like many women do in normal relationships. She is most likely wanting to keep the affair very quiet so that her husband won't find out so she certainly won't be after any sort of commitment from you.
Dating married women can also be less expensive than dating a woman that is available. You may have to spend money on a hotel or motel if you want to meet at lunchtime, but you tend not to have all the usual dating expenses. She most likely won't want to go out for dinner at a restaurant incase you are seen and you won't need to buy her flowers or other gifts or she will have to explain to her husband who they are from.
The last advantage to dating married women is that you may then become more attractive to other women. Single women may think that there must be something special about you if a married woman is willing to risk her marriage for you.
Then of course we have the cons of dating married women.
The obvious disadvantage is if the woman's husband finds out about the affair. There are many different scenarios that can occur if this happens. The best scenario would be that her husband insists the affair ends immediately, of course you are then left on your own but at least that was the only consequence. Other results of this could be that the husband may leave his wife and she is then left on her own and may then possibly want a commitment from you. In some cases, husbands may even act out violently against either their wife or the man she is having an affair with, or both.
Another problem with dating a woman that is married is that you may fall in love with her. You may decide that you want more from the relationship but she may not be willing to give you any more. She might not be willing to end her marriage for you.
Lastly, there are the moral aspects of having an affair. You will risk breaking up the woman's family and this can be quite devastating if she has children. Even an affair that begins with the intention of not going any further can escalate and may end up having long term consequences for you, the woman and her family.
If you are considering dating a woman that is married, don't just consider the pros of dating married women but consider the cons also and ask yourself if it is really worth it.
