The percentage of married men having a mistress is 70% yes cheating is extremely high because so many men do not feel they can say or do certain things with their wives. Men like to be able to express themselves without fear and married men seem to fear being themselves around their wives for some reason. I’m sure my own husband probably felt the same way but he never cheated nor did I.
My husband was ten years older than I was and that in itself was a huge age gap because of the era’s we were raised in. Today, a ten year age gap is not uncommon and the age gap tends to bring much to the relationship. I do not appear to be my age nor do I act stuffy or stuck up like so many women do, I like to be able to associate with anyone any age and I do.
I don’t know how I feel about marriage anymore and do not know if I will ever remarry but I will be in a committed relationship one day. It would kill me to find out I was being cheated on so I do everything possible to keep good communication lines open in my relationships. I respect the person I am with and I never stand in their way but always encourage them to follow their dreams and heart.
I may not always agree with the person and I tell them why because when you are not honest you cannot build a healthy relationship with that person. I have had my disappointments in relationships but I always walk away with more knowledge than I had before I met that person. People come and go as do relationships but you can bet one day the right person will be by your side, it is just a waiting game I assume.
