Reasons Why You Should Avoid Dating A Married Person

Infidelity, or cheating, is the act of being unfaithful to a spouse or other partner. It typically means engaging in sexual or romantic relations with a person other than one's significant other, breaking a commitment or promise in the act.

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Dating A Married Person:

1. If you are involved with a married person, you have to live your life in secret especially in matters concerning the relationship. You will never have the pleasure of meeting his friends and family. He can never show you off to the world.

2. There will never be a happy ending

Never expect a happy ending to the kind of relationship that is built on the foundation of infidelity. It will either end ugly or will leave everyone broken. You may dream of a life together with your married lover but once the beans are spilled, you’ll just be a nuisance to them.

3. Overthinking about the repercussions of an extramarital affair can be extremely damaging to one’s mental health. One might end up seeing themselves as a culprit and take the blame for everything going wrong. This thought process causes a blow to self-esteem.

4. ​Damage to self-esteem

The person who has been cheated on will suffer a blow to his/her self-esteem. Just as children tend to blame themselves for their parents’ divorce, many victims of an affair respond to it by blaming themselves.

5. You'll be judged by others.

Everyone who become involved with married people will be continuously criticized and booed by those around them. Yes, the general public is unaware of the reality. But the point is that becoming someone's lover makes you a "home-wrecker" in the view of others. You can never change the fact that people will always cheer for the wife or husband and never for the mistress.
