Great piece. Thank you for being honest about your experience.
As the wife who has been at home, and learned later she was talked about in a similar manner, I can tell you it definitely isn’t always true.
Everything he told the other woman was a lie carefully crafted to get under her skin and paint me as cold and unfeeling.
It worked. Until she realized he wasn’t leaving me for her. When she contacted me and spilled all, I just had to sigh and the incredulity of it all. I’m probably one of the most sexual and affectionate people you’ll ever meet.
So when people say someone cheats because of something they aren’t getting at home, I laugh because i know at least in some cases, that’s completely untrue.
Best wishes xoxo
