Personal view on extra-marital affairs from one of our member blog

Extra marital affairs have been in existence from time immemorial in every society. In the so called sophisticated Western societies it has become a fashion or regarded as an additional qualification to boost one self esteem to say that he or she has a lover on the side. However morally, ethically wrong or sinful to have an extra marital affair, the fact remains that millions of husbands and wives in the modern world do fall prey to this unfortunate serpent where families breakdown, and in most cases end up in divorce where innocent children are left to pick up emotional pieces left from their parents. In the case of a man having an affair with another woman, it is said that the wife is the last to know when her husband has strayed. She may vaguely come to know about it from the peoples whispering behind her back until a well meaning friend decides to let the cat out of the bag for obvious reasons to keep the family of her friend in tact. Alternatively, the husband finally eases his conscience to his wife with the truth. In certain cases it is not sex alone that is most important in a marriage, but the total relationship that counts. When women try to use sex as a bribe or a weapon, it opens up a different chapter where they do not have much to say to one another. Sometimes the other woman is an escape from friction under the domestic roof.
