This type of media coverage only serves to glamorize cheating in my opinion. No consequences discussed for their infidelity.
‘I Don’t Regret Cheating On My Partner—Here’s Why’
Six women explain why they feel zero guilt.
By Jen Glantz March 2, 2017
With the exception of the hot fling you plan to have with Leo DiCaprio when the opportunity presents itself, you might assume that cheating on your partner would leave you feeling pretty bad (to say the least).
But some ladies get busy with other people, have zero regrets, and live to tell about it. And because this is a judgment-free zone, we asked women who've done just that to share their stories.
Here's their take on cheating without regrets.
"I got married at 24 to a person I didn't love but settled for because everyone was putting pressure on me to tie the knot. My family told me that I should focus on marriage instead of a career. And my friends were almost all married (we're from the south and that is just what people do). Our marriage was dead on arrival, and we just clung to each other because we didn't know what else to do. Three years in, I met someone else at work, and we had an affair. My husband found out and it was the catalyst that helped us both go on with our lives without each other." —Sherry D., 34
"I don't regret cheating because I didn't love the person I cheated with. I slept with a guy I met out one night at a club in Miami when I was celebrating a girlfriend’s birthday. In my eyes, it wasn't a big deal because there wasn't an emotional connection. It was just sex. If I loved him, then I would be cheating with more than just my body. I’ve been married for four years, and I truly love my husband. I don't plan on telling him because I don’t want to ruin our marriage over a person I don’t care about at all." —Raquel D., 31
"What comes around goes around. I found out my husband was cheating with a neighbor, so I cheated back. I wanted to hurt him like he hurt me. When my husband walked in on us, he was shocked. I saw him cry, but it felt good to get him back for the pain he caused me. Obviously, we ended up getting a divorce, and I was fine with that." —Luciana F., 41
"My husband and I hadn't slept together in two years. I needed sex. So I slept with a stranger. Cheating actually helped me realize that I needed to do something about our sex issues. I never told my husband about the affair, but I decided it was time to go to couples therapy and sort out our lack of sex. After going to therapy, we started trying new things in bed and making it a priority to have alone time together. Our relationship has never been stronger. I don't regret cheating because I feel like I had to do it for us to get to the place we are at now." —Erin D., 31
"I was tired of being a stay-at-home mom who wasn't treated well by her husband. My husband never called me beautiful and practically ignored me. I ended up secretly dating a guy that lived in the neighborhood and was recently divorced. It was my adventure, and it made me feel good about myself. The side guy knew about my husband and didn’t care. He wanted a girlfriend without all the attachment that came with it, so it was a mutual agreement. When my husband walked in on us one afternoon, he screamed that he wanted a divorce and I was okay with that." —Charlene W., 45
"You don't know what you are missing when the only guy you've slept with is your husband. Sleeping with other people expanded my horizons in the bedroom. I had two affairs in the same year actually! The first one was with a trainer at my gym and it ended when he moved. The second started only two months after that with a guy at work. He was the IT guy, and we hit it off. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I was in his bed. That one ended when I quit my job and I lost the thrill of sneaking around at work. I don't regret it, and my husband still has no idea." —Debby L., 28
