“What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her”
The main woman isn’t the only one who tells herself crazy and problematic things to make herself feel better about her man’s infidelity. Women who play second fiddle also resort to flawed logic to justify their decision to sneak around with men in relationships. A popular one is that she technically isn’t hurting the main woman if she has no knowledge of what’s going on. It’s how she settles for conscience for breaking girl code.
