It's kind of crazy how many extra marital affairs are circulating my town lately. I've known two women just recently were blind sided by their husbands cheating ways. I stumbled onto this article today while looking around ivillage and it got me to thinking. How many people do I know have cheating spouses? I would have NEVER suspected my friends husbands of cheating. Sadly, I suspect a few I do know are carrying on an affair and their wives are blind to them. My heart goes out to the ladies I know and the ones who have yet to find out.
It seems everyday in the news some actor, senate leader or public figure is caring on with an affair. Crazy how people will risk everything for a thrill, sex, or emotional connection. What's sad is all the hurt and pain caused in the wake of the affair. Families torn apart, and relationships forever broken.
How does someone trust someone who would leave their family? How can you build a life around that? I just don't understand the people who believe they are "different" then the last person. If someone can shut off their emotions for someone for whom they they have built their life with, they can do it for you. When my friend's husband left her at 33 WEEKS PREGNANT, I scoured the internet for some reason why a sane person would do this. I did come across a REALLY good explanation. There actually is a chemical reaction that takes place within the body when a person has an affair. Hormones are released and a euphoric sensation clouds their better judgment. Hence, making them numb to their partner. They say this is what happens when people say, I love you but I'm not in love with you. The intense feelings override the bond they have with their partner and causes them to lose sight of their true feelings for their spouse. Makes sense.
Men aren't the only ones who cheat, but I'm just speaking right now about recent events going on with my friends. Kinda crazy world.Some relationships can survive an affair. I personally would jump ship...I could never trust the person again, but to each their own....
