Cheating Justice or Vengeance?
Married and looking
Being single isn't easy. Friends are always trying to fix you up, parents are always asking "are you seeing anyone YET?" Sometimes you just want to relax at an event but someone's trying to hook up with you.
So what do you do and how do you know when you've met the Mr. Right? Ask Delaine Moore...
This happened to her last year... Ladies put yourself in her shoes.
Delaine met a man at a bar and spent eight hours enjoying each other's company; they hit it off and connected immediately. They were sharing a drink, flirting, and yes, she ended up kissing him.
And gals, you know how important the NEXT day is. Will he call? Was he just after me in order to "hook-up?" Is this guy for real? Is he genuine? A day later, she found out the dude is married.
What a smuck. But then Delaine took it a step further: she tracked down the wife and let her know what happened. Delaine also blogged about it and wrote a book about it? Just how do you think that went over? Much of the blame and judgment was cast on HER, not the husband. She was called a "home wrecker" and a "woman with anger issues."
Here's the thing that actually PUSHED Delaine to tell: she had also once been a wife and mother who'd been cheated on, and she wished someone had told HER.
And how did the wife take it? Surprisingly, the woman believed her. Not only that, she was grateful. Said the wife:
"I'm still glad that you told me. I've become a much stronger woman since last year, making decisions that are good for me and my future, including working part-time. I'm speaking my mind a lot more with "Brian" around a lot of issues. And he, in turn, has become a much better husband than ever --supportive, communicative, and a lot more mellowed out.
I think ignorance is not bliss. I would rather know than not, because then I cannot be a victim and say I had no idea what he was, or is capable of."
The wife also says that while her "eyes are wide open," she is "happier" with her husband than ever before. It looks like this incident forced the couple to grapple with some issues.
That enough to make you blow the whistle on someone? If you slept with a guy who you thought was single, would that be different than just making out in the bar?
Would you tell?
