11 mentions of the wife and 4 mentions of the kids and not one word about the pain they might have felt. Not one word about how you ended the affair as soon as you found out the guy was married.

Everyone makes choices in their lives, except the children. Maybe the wife turns a blind eye to shield her children. Maybe she really doesn’t know what’s happening. Or maybe she agreed to some form of open marriage because it’s better than the alternative of being divorced.

But the cheater and the lovers who enable his behavior all play a role in hurting the family.

Has our society become such a victim-based culture that no one sees the kids as the real victims in this situation?
