Im dating a married man
Assess whether the man you are dating is pursuing the relationship because he loves you or he just because he wants to take advantage of you.
Poonam Tiwari (name changed on request), 34, who works with a multi-national company in Noida adds, "I am in love with a married man who has a son. Mine was an arranged marriage, but after a year, lot of differences started creeping into our relationship.
You may find yourself alone more often than you'd like because his family will always come first.
Moreover, if he is cheating on his wife to be with you, what's going to stop him from cheating on you?
In extra-marital affairs, you can't expect to get any of these.
Most women know it by instinct, but not surprisingly many fall for it.
I also know that I am his second priority, but I am so emotionally attached to him that I'm not even being able to find an eligible man for myself and get married." Agreeing with Samvedna, Rashi (name changed on request), who is a marketing professional in Delhi adds, "I am dating a man who I know through work. Recently, he confessed to me that he's married and is not happy with his present relationship.
He said he doesn't want to cheat on me, but can't divorce his wife either.
I met her even before I got married and proposed to her. So, I didn't tell my parents about her and they fixed my marriage with another girl.
" Dating a married man could probably stigmatise you with many condemnable titles and may not be an easy experience to endure, for being the 'other woman' entails a lot of sacrifices.
If you have convinced yourself that his family would never come to know about it, think again.
Samvedna Thakur (name changed on request), 27, who works in an advertising agency in Delhi claims, "I have been dating a married man for the last two years. I've tried to break up with him several times but have failed in doing so.
I am aware of the consequences if his wife finds out about our relationship.Also, dating a man who's married may entail many restrictions such as not being seen in public places together or being with him only when he can find free time away from his family or sneak out and meet you.
