A couple of months back, I came to know a shocking news about a person I personally know. It was Adultery / Extramarital Affair. An illegal relationship one has with someone after marriage. Many cases are happening now. How is that possible? I understand it is completely one’s choice to choose another life partner. But the thing is, why isn’t one proceeding this act in a legal way? They can divorce their wife/husband legally, move on from their children, and marry the partner of their choice. It is really disgusting to even look at faces of these men/women. Also I would say not only the person who does that has to be blamed. The “so-called” better half also had to take equal responsibility for the other to perform this act. It takes both husband and wife to be responsible for a relationship to sustain. If one goes out of the way from this, the other has to be blamed. Being a wife or a husband, I believe it’s okay to keep an eye when you start suspecting something is wrong. Always believe your gut. It never lies. It’s not like you doubt your partner. When they are so natural from the beginning and suddenly things change and there is definitely an alter in their behaviour, the lesser amount of time they spend with their partner, spending most of the time of phone chatting, it is important to keep an eye. It is necessary.
Me and my husband had a conversation on this. He asked me a question. “How will you react if you were in such situation?”. I answered, “Maybe I’ll try to talk and make it clear that we have a family and other responsibilities”, and so on. He gave me a reply depending on my answer. He said, “It is useless to spend life with such a partner. Be it husband or wife. Walking off from that life is the best decision one can make.” The answer he gave was so strong and I think it is sensible, rather than worrying the whole life about the person who cheated on you. In the end what we both personally felt was, neither a man nor a woman, they don’t reform completely anyway after one such thing has happened. It is a completely baseless life one can spend with his/her partner, after knowing about their true nature. As my husband said, moving on might at least save their children’s future ahead.
