The Life & Times of Mommiehood

Here I am finding my way through uncharted waters.

not sure i know what to say …

I’m behind in my magazine reading and started reading while ellipticalling at the gym. Not always easy with the the whole tiny print thing, but I’m making it work.

This was the last article, and so far the worst I’ve read in my year or so as a WH subscriber. The title: “Invasion of the Husband Snatchers: Today’s ‘other woman’ isn’t a vamp, she’s not desperate, and she has no qualms about poaching what’s yours.” Click on the link if you want to read the whole article and check out all the “stats” from their survey/poll.

The whole article kinda scared me. Is this really what our society has come to? Even the first little scenario where the woman ends up shagging a married co-worker doesn’t seem right. Like they had this relationship that was nothing until one day they kissed and have sex ten minutes after and are together for a year. The affair started long before the kiss and the sex if you ask me. It’s called boundaries people. Sure there are relationships between men and women that are no big deal, but the way she describes their relationship it was getting out of hand before the infamous cocktails.

Going from bad to worse are headings like “we can’t resist — it’s in our genes” and “how sacred is marriage, anyway?” I was honestly horrified. Only one paragraph at the end gives any credence to not cheating and having a monogamous relationship. Relationships and marriage aren’t always easy. They take work and effort, but both are worth it.

So keep your brain engaged and your pants on. Might save you a world of trouble. And, BTW, there’s no such thing as a “no strings attached good time.”

This post might be a mess, but I’m a little in shock and pretty horrified. I hope this view on relationships and cheating is not gaining a following. It’s also a mess because I’m also watching American Idol 🙂

My husband Andrew and I have been married for fourteen years and love living in Colorado! Eight years ago I became a mommie to an awesome little boy and four years ago to my precious little girl. The past few years have been a whirlwind.

One thought on “not sure i know what to say …

  1. Scary, isn’t it? We humans have this incredible capacity of justifying doing what we want! It isn’t in our genes, it’s in our hormones.

    And the answer is what you say — Boundaries! Miss that one and live at risk. Get that one and survive!
