Why No Relationship Born From An Affair Can Ever Work
There are so so many reasons not to get involved with a man who is in a relationship with somebody else (so, SO many reasons. Really can’t stress that enough.) And I’m talking about men who are either married or have even just been in a committed relationship with someone for a long time, because if a couple has been together for years and shares a life together, that infidelity hurts just as much as if it were a marriage. From a simple empathy, be-a-good-human standpoint, there are a lot of reasons not to get involved with such a man. But even if you just want to look at it from a selfish standpoint, since sometimes it can be hard to empathize with someone you’ve never met (like his wife), think about it this way: your relationship with a man never had a chance of even getting off the ground if it was born from an affair. You can give it a shot, even if he does leave her for you (though that rarely happens), but even then you’ll see it was doomed from the start. It was rotten at the roots.
You’ll never trust him
Even if he does leave her and become your partner, you’ll never trust him. The truth will sink in: if he was able to cheat on her he’ll be able to cheat on anyone. You saw what an incredible liar he was. Who is to say he won’t use those lying abilities on you?
