If you’re in love with a married man, you’re probably experiencing a lot of conflicting emotions right now. Some of the time, you just can’t help but feel blissfully happy, because you’ve fallen in love. But then you come crashing back down to reality and remember he’s married, and that it’s a very, very complicated situation. And it’s made even more frustrating by the fact that you never set out to meet or fall in love with someone who’s already married.
You’ve just found yourself in this situation, and now you don’t know what to do. Of course, no relationship between two people is ever quite the same as any other. The relationship you have with this man and the relationship he has with his wife are both unique, and hard for anyone on the outside to understand, so it’s tough to give generic advice in situations like these.
But there are a few hard truths that you probably need to hear, whatever the circumstances you’re in. After all, your current situation isn’t sustainable. I think we can all agree on that. And if you’re reading this, you’re on the hunt for answers.
You’ve probably been given all the right advice by your friends and family (if you’ve told them), but it can sometimes be much easier to hear these things from a stranger than from someone you’re close to. Something’s got to change, and it’s not going to be an easy ride.
