In this day and age it is certainly not uncommon for men to cheat on their significant others, but below answers some of the questions as to why some women find it appealing to have affairs with a married men:
For some women, attracting a married man’s attention is considered an achievement. Having a an affair or affairs demonstrates that she has “still got it”, and feeds her low self-esteem and boosts her self-confidence. Even though it is wrong, it makes her feel good about herself and more attractive.
Having a affairs with a married men also has to do with power and control. Being with someone who already has a wife and/or children makes the women feel in control. A mistress’s power trumps promises of loyalty and fidelity, which will only fuel her dominance. She is safe in the knowledge that the cheater would never reveal their secret, and in turn gives the women control over the situation.
Another reason that some women have affairs with married men has to do with the type of relationship she wants. She is not looking for marriage and a family, and a lover can give her that. Because he already has a wife and family, she knows she can have a relationship without those commitments and responsibilities.
The risk of having an affair, or affairs is also an enticing factor and can be very exciting. There’s a level of excitment that makes the situation seem appealing. The idea that you have to keep it all a secret creates a rush that attracts certain women and leads them to feel a renewal of life for them.
A mature married man is usually financially stable. He has a job to support his family, so a woman who is having an affair with him knows he can also give her what she wants.
