Yes, while she was having babies and creating a home for her family, her husband was off boinking anything with a pulse.
It boggles the mind.
I understand being tempted and "down cycles" and even the odd inappropriate flirty friendships with that friendly Fed-Ex guy or receptionist at the office... after all, we're human and our libidos aren't always in sync with our spouse and it's not out of line to assume that everyone has their fantasies or their "what-ifs".
But acting on it? Throwing away the vows you took and the trust your spouse has in you for what? 15 minutes of sex? Feeling special? Or young?
If things are that suck-ass at home, maybe try therapy first or just go ahead and get that divorce... there's no need to be so tacky.
It just can't be as romantic as it seems. What the thrill of it all?
Personally, I hate sneaking out. The few times, back in high school, when I did I A) ended up in the background of a local newscast and got caught. B) ran into my mother's best friend and was caught. C) ran out of gas and had to call my dad for a ride... yes, caught again. It doesn't work for me, so I can't quite see trying it now... Um, honey? I am going to Palm Springs with ... with a bunch of friends you don't know! No, I don't know where I'm staying... um, I'll call you?
Then coming home and looking at your kids who think you were working late or on a girls night out when in actuality you were holed up where? A motel? Or a charming inn? Or someone's home?
Maybe I'm naive.
It's not for me.
Not to mention - I 'd probably have to buy all new underwear.
