Article on dating married man review of dating site
Do you want to wake up ten, twenty or even thirty years from now, regreting what you could have had by staying in this destructive relationship?
Problem is people use excuses to justify their actions to make this feel better. This is the life of a woman having an affair with a married man. You say "dating a married man" like "dating a co-worker" or something. Especially if he HAS been sleeping on the couch for the past 8 years. They're too likely to come back and bite you in the butt. My boyfriend too would say that he was sleeping on the couch and not with his wife, but I finally met his mother and was able to confirm that what he had said was true and he was completely honest with me.If you're unhappy, imagine how his wife will feel when she finds out about you. It's very possible he has good reasons for not being able to, not wanting to, or not being willing to leave her. You've invested a lot of your time and energy into this man and this relationship. Perhaps it's time to let another relationship go - the one with him. No matter how much you love him, you can't be happy with the situation the way it is, and even if you do issue an ultimatum and he leaves her, he will likely blame and resent you for all the trouble and strife that ensues. But seriously don't put your life on hold for someone that is not willing to leave his wife and move on with you. My dad left my mom for his mistress of 5 years only after she divorced her own husband.I told him I'm sick of it and he asures me he is leaving. I don't know that I would believe he's slept on the couch for 8 years. But I can tell you that after 8 months together I had decided that if he wasn't willing to leave his wife really soon that I was going to end the relationship because they can come up with so many excuses and it is just not worth the stress emotionally and otherwise that we go through.
Is there anyone else out there in the same situation? My advice would be to put your foot down and gain some self respect. You'll find out quickly if your just his side piece or if he's serious. Any more than I would really believe she doesn't already know about you. I would say that after him saying that for 5 years that he has no plans of leaving his wife and I know that it is hard to hear and it hurts, but please don't submit yourself and waste your life on someone that is not willing to put you first.
You just invested yourself in a situation that was based on borrow time, stolen money and another's loving.
