When a woman has had an affair – and falls in love – she thinks she’s now choosing between two men: her husband and her affair partner. But that’s not actually true.
The relationship with her husband likely feels like safety and predictability. But it also feels disconnected, lonely and broken beyond repair.
The relationship she has with her affair partner likely feels like an addiction that she knows is wrong and damaging in many ways but she can’t seem to turn away from. She feels seen, desired and alive again.
This is the place where most women get stuck. They believe they are choosing between two men and it feels like a no-win situation.
