There is a growing trend of women getting attracted to married men. This sheds some truth to a joke about how a lady can put off a guy, only to become interested when the same man focuses their attention on another lady.

Women who fall for married men are usually seeking attention and emotional support. Since married men seem to be more experienced and mature, they get attracted towards them. Owing to their experience, married men understand the emotional needs and desires of women better than their single counterparts. However, men usually get attracted to other women as a result of a deficiency or a lack of satisfaction (emotional/sexual) in their present relationship.


Marriage comes with responsibilities. The man has mouths to feed and bills to pay. He has decisions to make and many more other responsibilities. As such, a married man is socialised to be responsible. He will not show up at her doorstep with only condoms but will be thoughtful enough to get her some grocery, maybe milk, some sugar and bread for tea as he settles in.

No future Expectations

Some women hate commitments other than a dinner date or a sex session. For them, they dread marriage and promises, so they tend to flow with married men because there are no expectations like marriage, children or maintaining the home.

They can be mentors/Advisors

As a result of having a lot of experience, ladies love going to them for advice on life.

It’s quite common for the husband or male partner of a lady’s friend to become the person who deciphers all the confusing male behaviour the single lady struggles with.

As the interactions increase, the single one is likely to find herself being attracted to her friend’s’ partner.

This is because he not only sheds light on what’s going on in the murky male psyche, he invariably presents himself as one of the nice guys who would never behave like the young unmarried men.


Women love to have something that belongs to another woman. They love to compete. Women compete with other women more than men compete with each other. When it comes to relationships, women will compete more with each other and the thrill of knowing a man sneaks behind his wife to be with them gives them an edge in the competition.
